KATHY HINCH BAND
Kathy Hinch Band was created in May of 2010, when Melbourne Singer/Songwriter Kathy Hinch was asked to put on a support show for good friends and major influences, The Little Stevies. Calling upon fellow students at The Victorian College of the Arts, Kathy set out to create a band that satisfied the soulful alter-ego of her jazz roots, that combined creative storytelling with musical substance. Described as neo-soul infused pop, KHB has unique flavour and vibe, drawing musical inspiration from styles as varied as Aussie folk, to Old school soul, to the current Afro – American neo-soul and RnB artists of today.
Exploding on to the stage at the renowned Esplanade Hotel in St. Kilda to rave reviews, The Kathy Hinch Band began their musical debut with a bang, The band has since played at venues such as The Evelyn, Spensers Live, The Empress (Supporting Bobby Flynn), The Wesley Anne, Penny Black and recently did an August residency (Sunday sessions in August) at St. Kilda’s Veludo Bar among others, pleasing crowds of very diverse musical tastes.
Having just recorded a debut EP with Jason Heerah of Electric Empire, due for release in late 2011, KHB are fast becoming an up and coming force in the Melbourne Live music Scene.

Ladies and Gentlemen this is That Gold Street Sound and they are here to spread a message… ‘Friday night’s for party, Saturday night’s for getting down’. Learn it. Know it. Live it.
Keep your ear’s peeled for That Gold Street Sound’s debut album ‘Devil’s Music’ released August this year.
Can’t hold it down
Can’t keep it low
I gotta let everybody know…
A vibrant, explosive new sound has been brewing amongst the Melbourne music scene.
Juicy soul based compositions with a deep funk vibe, bass-heavy hip-hop grooves, tasty jazz infused horn hooks layered with the honey-smoke laced vocals of front woman Katt Beames and delivered with an attitude that says
“Goddamn! I do what I want & I’m gonna have a nice good time!”
Kattimoni was formed through an evolution of previous project ‘Katt Beames and the Soular Sky.’ Having released an EP, a full length studio album ‘Elixir’ and touring nationally together, appearing at National festivals inc. Port Fairy Folk Festival, St Kilda Festival, Festival of the Sea & Kingston Festival, founding members decided it was time to move in a new direction. Building on existing chemistry, Kattimoni are simmering on a rich texture of sound & have developed a distinctive unique soul flavour of their own.
