The northern frontier in Australia's soul revolution! Back in 2000 from a naked millennium celebration came the NEO. Mixing funk, blues, reggae and rock, the NEO has the groove to make you move and the show you'll keep talking about.
Released in 2012 the much anticipated new album, The Near Earth Objects is the NEO's best yet. the first single, Marrtjina is currently being played on ABC local radio all over Australia.
In 2010 the NEO made their second appearance at "Bluesfest" in Byron Bay as part of their huge Playmode Tour, which included shows in the Adelaide Fringe, Darwin, the East Coast and the Snowy Mountains.
Indeed, touring is a big part of what keeps The NEO rocking. 6 national tours including 2 Bluesfest, 7 Adelaide Fringe Festivals, appearances at the Darwin festival, 2 Adelaide Fuse Festivals, Woodford, Wallaby Creek, and even the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Scotland
