HRBRT

HRBRT are amongst the most exciting acts to emerge from Brisbane’s burgeoning jazz and improvisational music scene, having crafted a unique and futuristic blend of funk, fusion, neo-soul and electronic music. One of the few bands that can truly make odd meters groove & instrumental music sing, they have been described as “one of the musical gems of Brisbane and indeed Australia”. The project was brought back to life in 2018 after an extended hiatus, following their performance at Jungle Love Festival (2015). An evolution in sound & vision occurred when drummer & composer Nathan MacGregor connected with guitarist Brandon Mamata, who then joined MacGregor along with long-time collaborators Andrew Fincher (Keyboards), Lee Brackenborough (Synthesisers) & Lachlan “Swampdog” Symons (bass). In their new format, the band have played some extraordinary headline shows, appeared at Jungle Love Festival (2018), supported Brisbane-based up-and-comers First Beige along with Sampology’s Middle Name Dance Band, and performed for local tastemakers A Love Supreme.
