Jakubi Return Home For Aussie Shows

Melbourne’s very own funk/R&B lads Jakubi have just returned from the US and boy did they have a good time. They sold out shows in New York, San Francisco, and Chicago and have just announced a few Australian shows on the back of their new release Couch Potato.

The five-piece have gone from strength to strength with their blend of R&B, hip-hop, jazz and pop, all with a definite American vibe, so it’s no wonder they have done so well in the US. Their new track Couch Potato is a funky and smooth track, with a lot of different influences thrown in, and confident vocals from lead singer Jerome.

The group released their first singles in 2013 and quickly reached number 1 on Hype Machine with Can’t Afford It All and Holiday. Since then Jakubi have caught the attention of fans here and overseas, with cultural commentator (and gossip queen) Perez Hilton giving them a nod on his notorious website.

They have announced performances in Melbourne for December this year, and will also be playing at Beyond The Valley Festival, with more tour dates to be announced. Make sure you catch them while they’re here.

Australian Tour dates (so far):

SAT 5 DEC
Max Watts, Melbourne VIC

TUES-FRI 29 Dec- 1 JAN 2016
Beyond The Valley Festival, Lardner VIC
