Introducing JUKE KARTEL, one of the finest rock bands to come out of Melbourne, and already making serious waves. No gimmicks. No quirks. Just a five-piece band of killer musicianship wanting to bleed rock, and a burning ambition to write and perform songs with great melodies, catchy guitar riffs and energy. This is the motor that drives Juke Kartel its always about the songs.
The facts speak for themselves:

Live, they are a powerhouse. There is nothing like seeing five musicians giving it their all on stage. Juke Kartel come on all cylinders firing; you can expect nothing but pure energy. As a wise man once said, play each night like it is your last. That is exactly what they do.

Juke Kartel are a band that write and perform songs that they enjoy "Trend" is a dirty word at JK base camp.
