La bOum | It means party.


La bOum is a live electronic pop band from Brisbane, Australia. We are busy, love what we do and are passionate about great music and fun.  We have played everything from Stadiums, major touring artist supports, exclusive large nightclub residencies and festivals down to intimate private shows and events. 


About Us

La bOum is a live band and we're exciting, energetic, fun and constantly evolving.  Typically we play sets that would be expected from a DJ, but we branch it out into live instruments with our own edits/arrangements and although it's very organised, it's never the same twice. We self-produce our own edits/remixes of popular songs and occasionally we release them. We use a combination of live instruments including drums, vocals, keyboards and horns in conjunction with sampling/computer techniques to create our polished and unique live-sound. We research all the artists we cover and like to think we really do them a strong justice! We love music.


Stephen Anning

Musical director, keyboardist and vocalist Stephen Anning is a full time professional musician. Stephen has operated out of Australia, London and various parts of Asia. As a music producer Stephen is currently distributed under Alpha Pup Records, LA and recently worked on tracks for Japan Idol winners. He has walked red carpet at the ARIA awards following hit remixes of Australian artists Rikki-Lee, Levi ft Leftbridge and Tali. As a musical director Stephen has lead a UK covers group on tour in Singapore.


Stephen has performed in iconic Australian bands such as Megan Washington and PTYLTD playing large shows at festivals and supporting international acts such as Groove Armada, Crazy P, Fourtet and Caribou. Stephen lived in London for 12 months and became signed to a UK record label under his own project alias 'The Frollix'. While in London he was resident at 'The Live Lounge' Piano bar and was also appointed musical director of London based covers band 'Madison' and traveled with the band to Singapore on contract for 2 months.


Despite strong further opportunities to travel, Stephen decided to return to his home state of Queensland, Australia. Since returning to Australia Stephen begun singing and joined the Howl at the Moon duelling piano show full time for several years which involved a nightclub residency, some touring and performances in front of some Australian music legends like John Foreman and James Morrison at the MTAQ conference in Maryborough.


By request in 2013 Stephen begun La bOum to first perform to a crowd of 2000+ people at Cloudland nightclub in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane on New Years Eve. The first show was a hit and the band has been resident at Cloudland for over 5 years since on Saturday nights. This fantastic residency at one of Brisbane's premier nightclubs has really helped the ensemble to develop. La bOum has established a reputation as a world class band. The band regularly receives interstate and international booking requests from agencies, nightclubs and private functions. In 2016 La bOum played at Suncorp Stadium as part of a Brisbane Broncos game to a crowd of approximately 26,000 people.

In 2019 a side project of Stephens with music legend Dave Atkins of Hydrofunk records has been picked up by a LA based record label under Alpha Pup Distribution worldwide.
