The Steele Syndicate has got the groove, and it’s infectious. The Brisbane-based octet has an eclectic, genre-bending sound that re-imagines elements of old school funk, reggae, ska and indie rock. Rich vocal harmonies blend with a roaring, four-piece horn section to create music that is energised and emotional, for dancing breathlessly and for pondering deeply.
The band is quickly making its mark on the scene in Brisbane and beyond. Since the formation of its current lineup in September 2015, The Steele Syndicate has played regularly at established Brisbane live music venues, performed at The Sydney Opera House, played at the 2017 Gumball Music Festival in Newcastle, toured to Byron Bay, and played ‘A Set Adrift’ on a yacht off Mooloolaba. The band has entered and won two band competitions - the Sigma Stockies Band Competition (2016) and the Brightside Homegrown Battle of the Bands (2015).
The Steele Syndicate’s feel-good music never fails to get crowds moving. Looking to the future, the band is excited to bring its energetic groove to a wider audience in the months and years to come.
