9 piece funk n’ soul band from Melbourne!

Papa G and The Starcats are the new funk & neo-soul kids on the block. The group has been playing and selling out venues around Melbourne for the past year at iconic venues like Ding Dong Lounge, Bar Open, The Prince of Wales (with PBS radio show host DJ Manchild) and The Evelyn Hotel. Late in 2013, they wowed the crowds at Inca Roads Music Festival alongside Gold Fields, Barons of Tang and more!
