YONNI were formed in Feb 1996...It all started in a club "The Arches"... The band rehearsed for a few months and played their first gig at The Hadfield Pub in Sheffield in April 96...They recorded and wrote their songs at Epic Head Studio in Sheffield and got into the habit of giggin as much as possible.The best of these gigs were at the infamous Garden St parties and Music In The Sun festivals as well as supports to The Longpigs, Astralasia, Dreadzone and Fundamental in those first few years.


In Dec 1997 Yonni were featured on Channel 4's Big Breakfast as housemates of the week..

Looking forward to tonight's screening/gig.

The O2 Academy was where a sponsorship appeal was held to raise some money to make the film. That was in October 2008. 2 Years later the final part of The Beat Is The Law project is about to be shown. What we always wanted was for the screening to be like a gig experience with bands, so its great that Yonni -with Nort, who is featured in both part 1 and 2 of the film in the band Hula, together with The Cuckoo Clocks, featuring Paul Infante - the singer in Treebound Story (Richard Hawley's first band and also featured in the Beat Is The Law film), plus members of Oblong and Chloe Simmons are all up for it.

Hope those that go have a good time.
