The Sidesteps Quintet

Conscious vibes. No cover charge.

Formed in 2012, The Sidesteps Quintet combine a sort of who's who of the younger side of the New Zealand Hip Hop, Soul, and Funk scenes. Dandruff Dicky (@Peace) and Si Res (Harbour City Electric) make beats and perform instruments for Hone Be Good & Tonga Vaea (Oui Groove) and Tyra Hammond (Opensouls) to lace with the sort of conscious vibes that could only come from a place like this.

This is the sort of musicianship people pay good money for, yet The Sidesteps Quintet are performing for free at the Portland Public House on June 6. Get a free download of their EP here. With all this generosity its no wonder they're still Young, Gifted, & Broke.
