Soul and grooves meets Galactic Funk.


A vessel for pushing musical boundaries with a Heavy Galactic Funk experience and groove based narratives.

Black Comet is a New Zealand based 5 piece band led by frontman Laughton Kora.

Founding members include Laughton Kora (vocals/ guitar), Sam Jones (keys/sax), Poihakena Reid (keys/sax/guitar/voice box), Stan Bicknell (drums), and Dan Antonovich (bass). Mixed and produced by Tiki Taane.

The band has been compared to the “Millennium Falcon making the Kessel run in less than 12 par-secs”
