Skinny Hobos are a 2-piece Alternative Rock band from Auckland, New Zealand who make far more noise than any two people should!
The Hobos have quickly earned a reputation for being the hardest working band in town. In 2015, they played more shows than there were weeks in the year, as well as recording their debut album at Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studios with engineer Nick Poortman (Ekko Park, Jason Kerrison).
They finished off the year with a very successful co-headlined North Island tour with Wellington band Bakers Eddy, and they were also featured in the December/January issue of NZ Musician Magazine.
In the summer of 2016, they are taking things further afield with shows booked all over the country including a festival performance in Central Otago, main support for American bands Radio Moscow and Kings Destroy and a performance at Demon Energy's Rock the Park 2016 in support of Shihad, Villainy and Blacklistt.
“The two impress with the gritty and full rock sound they produce with two instruments, fine harmonies and just how much fun they have on stage.” - [NZ Musician Magazine].
"The performance can only be described as mesmerizing… the drummer has a keen sense of style that creates a strong presence and the frontman is so completely in love with what he is doing you can’t help but be sucked in.” [cerebral.nz]
