One Million Dollars

This Auckland-based soul/funk/jazz collective formed in 2001, originating as a four-piece about a year earlier led by Richie Setford.

They slowly collected more members from people they already knew or met through playing, until they built up to a 10-piece band, with co-vocalist and Brazilian native Robson Santos singing in Portuguese.
