The Hipstamatics

  • Pt Chevallier RSA 1136 Great North Road Pt Chevallier, Auckland, 1022 New Zealand

Hipstamatics now a household name in the live music community in New Zealand, was founded by guitarist Kelly Pram of Auckland Soul Productions in 2011. The 10piece line up has gone through many changes over the years but has slowly built up its stellar crew with an incredible feat of credentials to back their amazing talents. The bands style and musicality takes from classic 70s and other funk fusion elements of today. In the last year Hipstamatics have been focusing their efforts on creating original music with the distinct flavor that makes the Hipstamatics sound that it is today, Plans are in motion in 2015 to write and record their first album… Watch this space
