JULIE LAMB OUTFIT
"Anyone who has seen the Wellington-based Julie Lamb Outfit live, knows they are as tightly woven as that machine knitted jumper your mum made for you in the 70s - and keep you feeling just as warm."

KICK-ARSE FUNKY POP: Get lost between the stories and the groove
The Julie Lamb Outfit is an 8 piece collaborative music family coaxing kick-arse funky pop music into the multiverse. Get lost between the stories and the groove and find yourself in a high energy smile-a-minute space.
They look forward to meeting every Wednesday, sharing stories over dinner, and translating those tales into music in the practice room.
This line up creates energising and personality filled music and the arrangements work to ensure that each instrument has a chance to shine. Album reviewers and live audiences talk about this - how fabulous it is to be able to hear each instrument, how impressive that we leave space for each other, and how much fun we convey we're having... which is infectious for them too.
Well, when you enjoy being with people, respect what they do, and laugh with them a lot - it shows on a gig. That easy.
Mischief, stories, sentiment, groove. Not always in that order.

"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." JOHN SHEARER, MUZIC.NET.NZ
