Justice Crew

Justice Crew

They’ve got the moves, they’ve got the music and most importantly, they’ve got the drive. Comprising of John, Samson, Lukas and Paulie, Justice Crew have been busy this year touring nationally on their ‘Pop Dat Buckle Tour’.  Up until then they have sold in excess of 1.8 million units in Australia and are no strangers to topping the chats. In 2012, they release their #1 ARIA single “Boom Boom” and backed it up with two more ARIA Top 10 hits in “Everybody” and “Best Night”. In 2014 they did it all over again with the song “Que Sera”, taking top spot for a record nine weeks on the ARIA singles chart.  With word out there that they’ve recorded a couple more songs, we’re excited to see what 2018 brings for them. However, first things first, we’re even more excited to see a dynamic performance of theirs at Woolworths Carols in the Domain!
