Annoyingly catchy earworms.

With songs about dogs at the beach, Chicken Parmys, getting paid, just being yourself and the importance of not just getting a beer for yourself when it’s your shout, Burger Joint really are the peoples band. 

Whether it’s the hard hitting song lyrics, or the fattest funkiest tunes you’ve ever heard that get you onto the Burger Joint dancefloor, one thing is certain.  This is where you will meet your new best mates.

G and T-Bone, two motorcycle riding legends of funk and groove They mix annoyingly catchy tunes with saucy loops and tasty beats, dripping with cheese.

This wall of sound of funk bass loops, epic lead guitar and tight fat drums with vocal harmonies singing fun tongue in cheek lyrics which make you smile as you get on down. 

Since their debut gig at Buskers by the Creek Festival in 2016 they have played shows all over the Gold Coast and ripped up festivals such as Gumball Festival, Dashville Skyline, Bleach* Festival, Woodford Folk Festival and the Bello Winter Music Festival, toured through Northern Territory, out to the western deserts of New South Wales and everywhere in between.   

Burger Joint ‘s charismatic funked up live show is a huge sound with plenty of guitar solos over the back of the head, percussion breakdowns, and a stage presence that is like having a party with your closest mates.
Strap yourselves in and enjoy the ride!
