Good crowd/bad crowd: I could tell that the crowd was more than ready to have an humongous night, with amazing bands and lets not forget booze..

Number of times seen band: 1

Crowd participation: Being the opening act is hard, but Johnny Hunter is not a band to mess with! They’ve got the stage presence down pat, the amazing vocals and the unique look. Here’s what the band had to say about how they think their set went.. “We felt a massive vibe, there was a whole lot of dancing going on. A lot of our mates came to watch us AND they saw a whole lot of unfamiliar faces” so they must be doing something right if they had people who’ve never heard of their music, dancing during the whole set. Good on ya’ boys.

Genre: Post-Punk Britpop

  7. One of a Kind

Johnny Hunter is a band made up of 5 mates with killer talent. Finally deciding on a sound that bounces between 80’s pop and melancholic chorus fascination. Johnny Hunter consolidates with what talent they have; to bring soul to the stage. Like nothing you’ve seen before.

With a low vocal range and belting tunes perfectly punctuated by anthemic chorus lines, it is all matched with thrashing guitars, rhythmic shimmer and a lot of bravado. Hands down an act to see live. Good luck with your gig at the The Landsdowne Hotel on the 25th of May, oh, and the rest of the supporting gigs with The Lulu Raes!!
