Jazz Funk, (NZ)
Born out of the thriving music scene in Te Aro, Wellington, HUMMUCIDE is a four-piece minimalist-rock-jazz group. From BadBadNotGood to Aphex Twin to Kaytranada, their influences come from far and wide.
Their goal is to get you dancing and feeling something special.
The band comprises of Tobias Leman on saxophone (Dr. Reknaw), Ben Stewart on
keyboard and synths (Sky Canvas, Dr. Reknaw), Lennox Grootjans on drums (Jack
Panther), and Hugo Olsen-Smith on bass (Evolving Wilds). They all started out at the
prestigious Te Koki NZSM, before traveling their own musical roads and coming back
together to form the HUMMUCIDE sound.
They have packed out the most popular venues in Wellington, including San Fran,
Meow, Caroline and Moon 1. They also have played at the Tora Bombora festival in
Martinborough, the Wellington Jazz festival and organised a highly successful
fundraiser gig for the Climate strike, with nearly 200 attendees. They will be playing at
the Twisted Frequency festival over summer and aim to record their first album of all
original compositions later in 2019, and make music together as much as possible.
