1. Fonoti

Fonoti is a soulful pop duo made up of brothers Yacob & Noah. Originally hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, these Maori/Samoan brothers have lived most of their lives in Australia. Even though they are only 21 and 22 years of age, Yacob and Noah have already performed in a number functions and events. Their outstanding vocals, great harmonies and musicianship was a result of not just of the musical history within their family but also from years of singing, performing and writing music together.

2. Sam and Nate

A fresh breath to the musical air, Samuel and Nathanael Andazola has had melody embedded in their lives since birth. With a background in piano, guitar, bass and drums, Sam and Nate have cultivated an understanding musically that has no further explanation than brotherhood. Samuel leads the two in melody whilst Nate’s purposeful unique rap style commands attention. They have performed in a number of big gigs such as the “Camplified Tour” on the East Coast where they performed before thousands of screaming campers, they shared the stage with Savvy, who was just recently signed with Cash Money Records label, they were invited to Disney’s Celebration City where they performed at the “Celebration of Voices” – this is where they got to share their talent with everyone in the snow covered streets and they were also extras in the Disney movie “Lemonade Mouth”. They are currently working and recording in Atlanta, Georgia with John Eley for their new single “Fell in Love with Love” featuring Algee, who was on the Original Disney Channel Movie “Let it Shine.” The new single is currently stirring up much interest in the music industry and is getting air play as far away as the U.K.

  1. @Chanel. It’s good that you love Yuwen and Weiwen, and congratulations to them for winning this months poll. There are thousands of mature adults out here who are not into Yuwen and Weiwen’s music. Fiddlestix is a mixture of music that reaches ages from 5 – 100. It’s a great range for all to enjoy. Be happy that your favourite band won, and congratulations to all that participated. Whether we came in first or not, we’re all #1 with our fans!!!! and that’s the most important thing.

  2. Nothing’s wrong with being cute and musical, but the fact that every last person in the comments supporting them just shouted “Yuwen and Weiwen!” or made heart symbols leads me to believe the music is barely even a factor. That and actually listening to all four groups.

  3. What’s wrong with being cute and musical at the same time? Herpity derp. Yuwen and Weiwen! <3333

  4. Another great reason for liking Fiddlestix. They play in festivals, your local watering holes, and private events. So not only can people enjoy watching them perform live, but also on their cd’s. For me, I really enjoy meeting up with the band members, and Fiddleheads every week to relax, dance, sing and just have a really great time for 4 hours. It really doesn’t matter what kind of a day you’ve had, whether it was fantastic, or downright ugly, Fiddlestix’s music, and the energy they give off can put even the biggest sourpuss into a playful kitty. You just can’t help but tap your toes, or tap your fingers, or plain right get up and dance. It’s what I like to call the ‘FSXercise’. Cause I guarantee there isn’t one part of your body that isn’t moving to the music. Who needs diet pills, when you can listen and dance to Fiddlestix!

  5. Fiddlestix is an incredible group of extremely talented people. The diversity in their music is wonderful and they can appeal to any age group. The Celtic fiddle music of the east coast to the Beatles and Johnny Cash, all played with a very different sound. You think Ashley McIssaic is good you need to come see Steve Bowen, ah that I could play half as well. Fingers that fly and make you wonder how you hear each note so clearly because he is so fast. Nancy and Carly on the guitar and vocals are sure to please. Sam Cino the “Animal” has you wanting more. Jeff on the keyboards, vocal and flute will dazzle you. Everytime I see them they surprise me with something new. Take the time to see the Stix!
