Kabanaz

Bio

Hailing from Wellington’s Lower Hutt, four piece melodic rock group Kabanaz are a family band with a difference. Resembling a Pacific Island ‘Kings of Leon meets Incubus’ the brothers Finau- Joe (vocals) and Kenneth (drums) teamed up with guitar virtuoso cousin Rob Leatuau, and (non family member) Carlos Pedro on bass back in early 2006, quickly setting about establishing themselves a loyal rock fan base in the local live scene.

Combining their love of all things rock, from the Beatles to the White Stripes, Kabanaz forged a classic feel good pop-rock sound laden with summery vocals hooks and charging guitar riffs.

After hitting the studio in late 2007, the bands’ debut album ‘Something New, Something Old, Something Better made its way to the Rock n Roll Mecca of Memphis, Tennessee, where it was mastered at Blackwood Studios.

Living up to its title, Something New, Something Old, Something Better is an amalgamation of the best aspects of pop, rock and funk, with shades of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots and honest, Dragon-style Kiwi rock. An album full of humour, memorable melodies and golden vocal hooks, Kabanaz are proud to present, the soundtrack to your summer.

Band Members:
Joe Finau (vocals)
