Middle Name Dance Band is a three-piece collaboration between Sampology, Megan Christensen & Sam Stosuur on MPC, Keys & Bass. Originally intended as a one-off EP project, the success of both Middle Name Dance Tracks Vol. 1 and the trio’s first live show saw further show requests plus national touring throughout 2019. Summer 2020, Middle Name Dance Band have so far performed at Laneway & Yonder Festivals.
Vol. 2 broadens the dance tempos and grooves from Brazilian & House to mid-tempo Boogie & Slow Jam, as heard on ‘Weekend Love Chant’ which received play from Gilles Peterson on BBC 6, & was listed on PBS’s Mike Gurrieri’s top Australian tracks of the year.
“The real deal. Such an awesome laidback groove.
Bring this to Europe please.”
Neil Bopperson, Le Melletron/Worldwide FM (France)
