Sneaky Sound System

Who: Sneaky Sound System, Jamiroquai
Where: Newcastle Entertainment Centre
When: Wednesday November 30, 2005

IT has been a good month for the lads from Sydney outfit Sneaky Sound System. First they were invited to open for Jamiroquai on its national tour, to appear at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre tonight.

Then they were added to the stellar Good Vibrations festival line-up.

To top things off, the band also finished its long-awaited debut album and played their first live show with singer Connie Mitchell. It certainly has been an unforgettable year for the group.

Playing around Sydney for almost five years, Sneaky Sound System has developed a substantial following.

Their breakthrough single Hip Hip Hooray became a staple on dance floors across Australia and, more recently, overseas.

In June the guys, comprising MC Double D and DJs Black Angus (Angus McDonald) and Hesse (Damien Hesse), set out to play shows in Italy and the UK where they road-tested material from their forthcoming album.

Performing at the legendary Angels of Love Party in Naples, the trio impressed the crowd of 6000.

Things went down so well that the lads were invited back to do three shows a year.

Next up was London, where the troupe played at The End to a sell-out crowd.

Then they went on to the sold-out 15,000-capacity B-Live Festival's main stage alongside Paul Oakenfold, Layo and Bushwacka, Har Mar Superstar and Cassius. They will share the stage with Jamiroquai again tonight.

Tickets are still available through Ticketek on 4921 2121 or online at ticketek.com.au
