AHoriBuzz have quickly become renowned for their captivating live performances, and after some groove ridden and crowd arousing sets at New Zealand’s finest summer festivals including Rhythm & Alps, Rippon, Splore, and Homegrown the band have created an immediate following.
AHoriBuzz is the brainchild of Aaron Tokona (also one half of Cairo Knife Fight) who steers the outfit on vocals, MPC and guitar.
A jam band with a revolving collective of talented guest musicians, you never quite know how things are going to roll when AHoriBuzz plays (the band swelled to a 12 piece at Rippon and a 14 piece at Homegrown).
The current core band includes Aaron Tokona, Riki Gooch (TrinityRoots / Eru Dangerspiel) on drums, soul sister LA Mitchell (Fly My Pretties, Sola Rosa) on vocals and keys and Aarons’ cousin Hori on bass.
Their first single “Glitter In The Gutter” was an underground favorite in 2011 and the follow up single “Turnaround” is a bone shaking funk-fuelled tune, with an infectious hook. The video for “Turnaround” has gone viral on the internet and enjoyed eight weeks on ‘A’ rotate on C4 Music TV.
