Kellie Knight and the Daze are a powerful, highly polished and dynamic north coast-based music outfit who through their mutual love of soul, funk and jazz music came together to pay tribute to some of the legendary musicians of these genres.

Playing an eclectic and carefully chosen blend of dynamic tunes which range from the sophisticated freeform grooves of Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis, through to the exciting soul workouts of Dee Dee Bridgewater, Stevie Wonder and James Brown, the Daze enjoy delivering a tangible and exciting groove to their audience and most of all just having fun sharing the music they love.

Diva Kellie Knight fronts the band, with her authoritative, powerhouse voice, bringing soul and raw emotion to their sound. Keith Hammond (drums) and Paul Brewer (bass) make for a fiery and groovacious rhythm collective, while Steve McLeod soars magnificently on electric guitar, all this rounded out by the intriguing multi-instrumental skills of Barry Ferrier adding luscious sounds on keyboards, flute, guitar and accordion… making for a band that makes you want to boogie.
