The Subterraneans return with brand new music, an amazing line-up of the funkiest musicians and a 4 piece horn section!

‘The Subs’ are probably one of the hardest working all originals performing, instrumental bands in Australia. Since it's inception in 2009 the group has managed to present it's brand of jazz/rock/funk/reggae in festivals (national and international) and hold residencies at iconic Sydney rock venues and head line at leading jazz venues including The Basement, Blue Beat and 505.

In 2011 ‘The Subterraneans’ debut self titled release won the Australian Jazz ‘Bell’ Award for best ‘Jazz Blend’ album.

2013 saw the release of their critically and popularly acclaimed CD ‘Live At The Townie’. ‘The Subs’ also performed at The Kuala Lumper International Jazz Festival and the Wangaratta Jazz Festival. In June they started took residency at Lazybones Lounge, Marrickville performing every Saturday night for 5 months. 

In 2014 they headlined ‘Jazz On The Green’ in Darwin in front of 2000 and performed nearly 100 times nationally!

“Hearing The Subterraneans for the first time was a hallelujah moment. Finally here was a band combining rock’s visceral energy with jazz’s lithe spontaneity, without compromising either.” – John Shand
