December NZ Shows!

Sneaky Sound System have been sizzling on New Zealand radio playlists for ten months now with their infectious song ‘Pictures’ and their latest single ‘UFO’. These guys are hot property and a sold out Auckland show a couple of months ago that was promoted via word of mouth only, proves it!

Sneaky Sound System’s reputation has been built from scorching live shows which they plan to bring back to NZ in December. There will be a surprise special guest at each show as support! Don’t miss this one!!

Over the past 12 months this Bondi based electro/pop trio have been catapulted from club and festival favourites into an omnipresent platinum selling pop sensation. The trio of Miss Connie (frontwoman/vocals), MC Double D (frontman/man-about-town/MC) and Black Angus (chief songwriter /producer/music guy) led the field in nominations at the 2007 ARIA awards, up in a staggering six categories – the most of any independent artist in ARIA history. Sneaky Sound System walked away with trophies for Breakthrough Artist Album and Best Dance Release. It’s the crowning achievement on an absolutely massive year for the Sneaky crew, their self-titled debut album having achieved sales in excess of 110,000 copies in Australia.
