Unleash The Nugget

Defn. to unleash the nugget (verb inf.): to allow one’s inner fool to wreak havoc on the world.

Derived from the ‘burbs of Hobart, Tasmania, Unleash The Nugget (UTN) are THE definitive band on how to get the party started. Hailing from the ‘burbs’ of Hobart, this hiphop/funk/party explosion are set to take over Tassie, then the mainland, then the planet Earth with their Aussie brand of party goodness.

Unleash The Nugget had their beginnings at Rosny College in Tasmania’s South during 2002 as a 6-piece act. They have since honed and developed their own blend of musicianship and lyrical mastery to deliver high energy, high precision shows with attitude. Today, Unleash the Nugget sports a 3-piece horn section, drums, electric bass, keyboards, guitar and two MCs.
