Introducing dynamic dub-rockers Tunes of I, an exciting six-piece hailing from New Zealand's capital city.
Formed at Wellington's famed NZ School of Music in 2011, the jazz trained collective boasts an experienced rhythm section and two of New Zealand's best horn players. Gracing some of the country's biggest stages including Rhythm & Vines, Soundsplash and Homegrown, Tunes of I have also opened for and toured with a variety of heavy-hitters including UB40, The Original Wailers, and Sticky Fingers.
Most recently, they've toured sold out shows throughout the country's main centres with Australia's Ocean Alley. This new band bromance led Ocean Alley to extend an invitation for Tunes of I to join them as their main support act for their Australian album release tour. Tunes of I performed to four sold out crowds in Sydney & Brisbane in April 2018, and will return in May to perform as main support at another two sold out shows.
With seven years under their belt, the band have worked hard to tailor their live performance, always leaving the crowd humming. Highly skilled musicians in their own right, each member has been known to rip a jaw-dropping solo at least once at every show. This combined with industry support from Creative New Zealand and NZ on Air makes Tunes of I one of NZ's most promising new exports.
