UMI Soundz – From the Cape To Cairns

Indigenous musicians will make an impression on Saturday 17 October, 2015 at the Tanks Arts Centre as part of the UMI Soundz concert, presented by UMI Arts. The Warrigan Band and SK Boiiz will perform at UMI Soundz on Saturday 17 October 2015 in Tank 5, Tanks Arts Centre from 7:00pm.

Delivered by peak Indigenous organisation UMI Arts, UMI Soundz promises to be an affordable evening of music and stories. With doors opening at 6:30pm and going until late, enjoy energetic performances and original music from the Warrigan Band and the SK Boiiz.

Warrigan Band will kick-off the evening with original songs they have written since forming in 2005. For over 10 years, this group of six family members from Hopevale, Cape York, have written their own lyrics and composed their own sound.

Led by lead singer and head songwriter, Luke Jack, Warrigan Band has created their own sound, blending a reggae sound with Country/rock lyrics and riffs. Although Warrigan Band has not performed prolifically outside of Hopevale, their ability to feed off each other during a set is contagious. The band is making the 5 hour journey from Hopevale just to perform at UMI Soundz, so you can expect they will make it an unforgettable performance.

Taking over from Warrigan Band is another family group who are not short on talent, the SK Boiiz. The SK Boiiz is made up of five brothers from Seisia in the Northern Peninsula Area. Founded by music artists and producer, SK_KiidD who wanted to create pathways for other musicians and mentor his siblings about the music industry and how to make a living out of being a musician.

This positive outlook and aspiring spirit is evident in how the brothers perform and shines through their lyrics. The SK Boiiz have carved out a name for themselves and have a large following already with their music streamed from their popular Sound Cloud account and pumping from sound systems throughout Fra North Queensland and the Torres Strait.

The SK Boiiz performances are professional and the brothers deliver a tight set time and again.
UMI Arts developed UMI Soundz after years of consultation with Indigenous musicians and performers identified a need for performance outcomes and professional development was wanted for musicians, at all stages of their career.

UMI Soundz concert featuring Warrigan Band and the SK Boiiz will take place on Saturday 17 October, 2015 in Tank 5, Tanks Arts Centre. Tickets can be purchased now from for $12/$10.
