The Alcohotlicks

The Alcohotlicks are a Sydney based band formend in the later part of 2002 featuring 1st & 2nd place winners at the 07' Wangaratta Festival of Jazz, National Jazz Awards, Aaron Flower and Ben Hauptmann. The instrumentation of the band is unique comprising of two electric guitars and drummer, Evan Mannell. The first two years were spent writing and performing in the local Sydney Jazz scene. The Alcohotlicks have written over thirty compositions for the band and have released two self produced live recordings. The Alcohotlicks released their first studio album entitled 'You,You' (Jazzgroove Records) in Oct 08'. In late 07' The Alcohotlicks were commissioned by ABC classic FM to record a feature for Jazztrack with Mal Stanley. Performance highlights include: the Jazz:Now festival - Sydney Opera House 04, Stonington Jazz festival - Melbourne 05, and they featured at the 07' Wangarratta Festival of Jazz: 'Sydney's Alcohotlicks also made the most of its unusual line-up, which teamed two electric guitars (Ben Hauptmann and Aaron Flower) with Evan Mannell's ferocious drumming. Not much room for subtlety here. Mostly, they disguised their tightly focused rapport with lashings of grunge-rock grit.' source:(http://www.wangaratta-jazz.org.au/docs/programme.php?reviews)
