MELBOURNE'S soul sensations, Saskwatch will attempt to have Parramatta audiences swaying along to their groovy beats when they perform at the Sydney Festival on January 18.
The group's lead singer Nkechi Anele said: "We're here to have fun and make sure you do to," she said.
"Saskwatch delivers nothing short of a loud, lively performance that must be seen to be believed.
"Audiences should be prepared to get off their seats and get sweaty."
Saskwatch were discovered three years ago while performing in front of Flinders Street station.
It wasn't until Vince Peach a DJ from PBS FM Radio saw the group of 20 busking and asked them to play a gig that the name Saskwatch and the band started to form into the a nine-piece unit that it is today.
The unusual band name, Saskwatch, was given to the band by trumpet player Nic Ryan-Glennie.
The group draws inspiration for their music from popular singers of the past while incorporating the musical vibes produced in New York's funk and soul scene. "Our music is loud and danceable soul," Anele said.
The group is working on new funk and soul-infused material for their next album. "This year we plan to return to the UK, play a few more festivals overseas as well as in Australia," she said.
