Bio

Banned From The Club.

Banned FTC were formed in 2015 when the BritRock singer, songwriter Iain (Linamix) Harris met with a reggae and ska influenced, Argentinian, multi instrumentalist, Esteban Aap, at an open mic in Noosa. Esteban took Linamix’s rap, rock and garnishing it with solid driving bass riffs, unnatural lead licks and haunting South American vocals, add to this the raw talent and technical ability of a 14, yes that‘s right 14 year old drummer (Max) and you have the grounds for unique, alternative pith.
Esteban lays down a bass loop then shreds the fabric of time with a blistering solo an octave up over it, still using the same guitar, Linamix’s vocal range redefines classic classing creating a new range spanning from baritone to tenor using both Spanish and English, Max’s commit- ment and style warps your mind with intricate fills and powerful, tight rythm to truly bury the deep, driving funkadelia into your ears; the whole time the energy on stage would have Yo Muma up and dancing.
This self-managed, self-funded, truly independent endeavour is driven by a work hard, play hard attitude that is born of unadulterated passion.
As a live act they are polished and full of energy, the outcome is a slick, harmonic, funk, fusion three piece that are driven by the dirty, fun sound they have fine tuned, as long as the show blows you away, who cares how the night ends, heck, let’s all get Banned!

Band rocks. Great vocal. Like the harmonies. Nice bass lines. I'd cut some low end and compress the masters a little louder maybe?
