BandJazzFunk

Funk, jazz and contemporary groove come together on stage when dlivr perform their original music classed as ‘urban groove fusion’. The variety of instruments used by all members adds to their unique live show. Their debut album ‘Home Here’, released late 2005, has also been a great success.

Biography

dlivr are an originals band based in Sydney, Australia. Since forming in 2002, dlivr have been developing, shaping and refining their own unique style, which they interpret as 'urban groove fusion'. The result is a synthesis of styles, including funk, contemporary groove, afro-cuban and jazz. Elements from these styles can be recognised with the variety of instruments dlivr utilise live on stage: from djembe to didgeridoo.

Musically, each member brings a vast array of experience to the band which influences the direction of the dlivr sound. Amongst their ingredients, they are also influenced by artists such as Jamiroquai, Incognito, Roy Ayres and Herbie Hancock.

dlivr continue to impress crowds at national and international performances. In August 2004, they completed a tour of China, where they played at several festival performances in the city of Chungchun. Closer to home, dlivr have played at numerous venues such as the 'The Vanguard', 'Watson's Bay Hotel', 'Bondi Hotel', and ‘The Basement’ in Sydney, as well as the 'Viva la Gong Festival' in Wollongong.

August 2005 saw the completion of their debut album entitled “Home Here". This was launched at ‘The Basement’ to a full-house. Following the success of this album, they will be touring the east-coast with their material, whilst preparing for their second album, and maintaining their status as a unique live outfit.
