From their humble origins in the small town of Dalby, Queensland, the boys of Hello Hokkaido have come a long way and given the Australian music scene a taste of their infectious pop/rock sound.
Hello Hokkaido have cemented themselves a strong following in Brisbane and at the end of 2011, took out the top spot at the Queensland Emergenza Competition at the HiFi. This culminated in a huge gig at the Metro in Sydney.
