The Hot Potato Band found their roots and musical inspiration in Sydney’s southern suburbs as street performers running over 120 shows a year all around Australia.
The band’s unique sound comes from the absence of a single drum kit, base guitar and electrified instruments. Three drummers create synchronised grooves on what would be a deconstructed drum kit. The bass lines are covered be an enormous, lung busting Sousaphone. Two baritone saxophones mimic part of a rhythm guitar and the bands huge array of horns cover catchy chorus lines and provide a beautiful harmonic cloud for Dylan (the vocalist) to float above.
