Picture the creative streets of Byron Bay in early 2012, The People Party, fronted by the always charismatic "Mr Speaker" were forged in the early hours of the mornings amongst raging, "on-the-fly", "Guerilla Gang" street parties.

Hosted in back alleys and shop fronts packed with endless Hip-Hop & Funk jams, loud crowd applause could be heard over the traffic as fans witness live B-Boy battles, sultry sax solos, sexy shirtless guitar duels and tasty rhythmic rhymes. Fast forward hundreds of hours of live improvised street-performance and this crew had developed a formula that would attract crowds in the hundreds, spilling onto the streets, (occasionally blocking traffic), all in the name of feel- good live music.

“It was time to show the people how to party” Says Mr Speaker........”PEOPLE PARTY STYLE!!!”

With Byron Bay's "street blessing", Mr Speaker and the People Party smashed their way to the top, winning the NSW and QLD Battle of The Band's competition (The same comp that Grinspoon had launched their career with) absolutely blowing the socks off the Judges' as they found themselves in an uncontrollable friction producing 2-step funk episode!

During the year that followed, The gang played countless local shows, performing at several festivals including the devising of a wild plan to gate crash Woodford Folk Festival 2012/2013 and with their guerilla style approach, actually succeeded in playing 5 unscheduled stage shows.

Then embarking on several East-coast tours The People Party shook up audiences with their raw mix of grimy, street style hip hop consisting of, Dope Raps, Live Drums, Bass, Electric Guitars, Keys, Synths, and a funked out horn section.

“It was clear that people wanted to hear these grooves …….ALL THE TIME!” says Mr Speaker.

They had to record.....But where? And with who? ……Who would understand these crazy party driven, street jamming cats?

Whilst supporting Drapht on an East-coast tour in Sydney they stumbled upon the perfect environment…..Twoz a magical little basement studio hidden deep in the underground world of Sydney's city grime, the perfect place to express their creative art. After many loose road trips, and after many sleepless nights feeding on cheap Chinese food “The People” (who often party) plan to birth an 8-track, self titled LP, in late May of 2014 wich turned into a 13 track creation.

The crew have also been filming some banging party clips ready to drop in conjunction with their release and in anticipation of the summer tour and release The People Party will be touring the East-Coast of Australia in NOV-DEC 2014.
