We’ve seen a lot of gigs in our time. We’re hard to impress. MY BABY’s 2017 show sticks out as one of the best live performances we’ve covered as a website.

MY BABY are ostensibly a blues band, haunted by voodoo and animated by touches of 70s Berlin electro-clash. That may sound kitsch but the results are exhilarating, particularly in performance. Imagine what B.B. King would have played if he was heavily involved with the occult.

The Dutch/ NZ trio play fast and loose, incorporating funk, blues, and pure choogle. In concert they are untouchable, clicking into each other’s impulses with spooky precision. MY BABY gigs are sweaty, raucous and smell like incense. Their music is a sort of swampy funk, distorted and twisted into compulsive Rock & Roll. ‘Uprising’ and ‘Seeing Red’ are easy highlights.

The band are touring now. If you like live music – come along. It’s a riot.
Follow MY BABY here. Tickets available here.
