Next gig: Figure You Out single launch. 2nd of April @ The Shadow Electric
Papa G and The Starcats are a 10-piece funk/soul band from Melbourne. They’ve been playing around Melbourne and packing out venues for 3 years now at heaps of iconic venues, like Ding Dong Lounge, Bar Open, The Prince of Wales, The Gasometer and The Evelyn Hotel. After a huge 2015 in which the band released their debut EP (of which the single reached Number 1 on Triple J Unearthed), a music video and a live album, the band returned to the studio to lay down new grooves. The result? Two new smashing singles, “Figure You Out” and “Manipulation”. Mashing soul, funk and yacht rock, the band have produced the best work of their career thus far, and will be launching the new singles at the Shadow Electric on the 2nd of April. Come and check out why Triple R called these guys “the next generation of Melbourne funk and soul”!
