The Julie Lamb Outfit is an 8 piece band throwing down kick-arse funky pop originals. You’ll lose yourself somewhere between the stories and the grooves and find yourself in a high energy, smile-a-minute, infectious vibe.
Julie Lamb is class, sass and hysterical "funnerisms" wrapped in one feisty package. Hailing from Wellington NZ, she is an accountant by occupation, a musician by pre-occupation...
Performing has always been her outlet for expression, a way to connect with others on the same wavelength. So while she has a successful blues covers band in "Two Bluesy Blondes" and runs the humorous choir "10dd" - it is the original material that brings this driven diva to life. Julie crafts each arrangement and surrounds herself with musicians who have the expertise to color the final form.
Each album has reflected the growth and emergence of Lamb's sound. The latest, 'Ordinary Days' (2017) has had amazing reviews. It contains smooth and exciting funk, which along with a guest acapella number, offers the listener an appealing ride with quirky surprises.
Whimsical, funk-tinged music with lyrical twists to keep you on your toes. Mischief, laughter and layers of musicality delivered by an 8-piece ensemble of fun loving musicians. What's not to love? Make it your mission to experience the Julie Lamb Oufit live, on a festival stage or up close and personal.

"Every song carries a unique edge that sets it apart from the standard rock fodder lurking on every corner"
Martyn Pepperell, Fishhead magazine.
“It’s great to hear some funky pop-rock with good old fashioned backing vocals and horn parts too. A class act made all the better by the joi-de-vivre it encapsulates and projects"
Bing Turkby, NZ Musician Magazine
"If you can, catch Julie Lamb live."
