Rising stars Neem to perform at 'Live at Bond'

Gold Coast folk/pop-rock band Neem are bringing their unique and soulful sound to Bond University, as part of the acclaimed Live at Bond free concert series on Sunday, May 17.

Neem has had a stellar year, hitting the stage with a bang in 2013 and going on to achieve enormous success with their first single ‘Ray of Sunshine’ clocking up over 65,000 hits on SoundCloud.

The four-piece band is currently recording their debut EP with ARIA winning producer Govinda Doyle, who co-produced the hugely successful Angus and Julie Stone track, 'Big Jet Plane'.

The band is fronted by Sally Williams-Schloegl and her son Nimai, with Sally's husband Rick Schloegl supplying the funky bassline and longtime friend Nathan Wrench on drums.

Drawing fans from all walks of life, Neem's original and timeless sound has captured hearts around the world.

"We're a family band, which I think is why our music appeals to such a wide range of people," said Sally Williams-Schloegl.

"We love to get our audience's feet tapping and hearts racing with our catchy, upbeat tunes.

"It's been a big year for us and we have a tonne of new material in the works, so we're really looking forward to showcasing some of our new tracks to the Live at Bond audience."

Live at Bond is held three times a year at Bond University, and showcases a combination of professional headline artists and emerging musicians, with the upcoming event to be opened by singer-songwriter and Bond student, Zoe O'Sullivan.

Drawing influence from the likes of Norah Jones, John Mayer and Ed Sheeran, Zoe's sultry blend of jazz and pop is sure to impress with her eclectic mix of contemporary and classic covers.

The Live at Bond concert will close out Bond University's ‘Homecoming Week’ celebrations, the university's annual birthday celebrations.

Guests are invited to bring a chair, rug or picnic blanket and enjoy an afternoon of free music and entertainment, with two bars serving beer, wine, champagne, drinks and snacks, plus an on-site coffee van.

Live at Bond kicks off at 2pm on Sunday, May 17, at Bond University's ADCO Amphitheatre, and is a free, all-ages show.
