THE FONOTI BROTHERS ARE BRISBANE'S TOP R&B DUO!
WITH OVER TEN YEARS EXPERIENCE AS PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS, THEY ARE SEASONED VOCALISTS, GUITARISTS AND MASTERS OF THE LOOP PEDAL!
Yak & Noah Fonoti are simply two brothers who love music and love performing!
Originally from New Zealand, their father Toni Fonoti is their biggest influence and inspiration! He was lead singer and songwriter for the iconic kiwi reggae band “The Herbs” who have since then been inducted into the New Zealand Rock ‘n Roll hall of fame. They grew up watching their dad perform all over New Zealand and Australia alongside his brother Brian as the duo “Simon & Fire.” Those two were the original “Fonoti Brothers’ and their biggest inspirations. Their family taught us everything we know and we do their best to represent them. They’ve been singing and playing together since they were kids!
Now both into our late twenties and it’s been well over ten years since their first professional gig! Both seasoned vocalists and guitarists, they have performed over a thousand gigs! Their favourite genre of music is RnB. They are heavily influenced by old Motown acts like Marvin Gaye to Michael Jackson all the way to 90’s RnB and today’s top RnB artists like Bruno Mars and The Weeknd. Aside from Rnb we love a little pop, reggae and hip hop as well!
