The Bamboos are a bona fide institution. They are one of the premier funk and soul acts on the planet now. Funk and soul has become a real, big Melbourne thing, and Lance and The Bamboos spearheaded that scene, and not just through happenstance, they understood the sound and executed it thrillingly – to wide acclaim here and abroad. Did you know their first ever gig with Kylie Auldist as singer was at Meredith? It’s been 8 years. Their live shows are a non-stop mix-tape-style throwdown that draws the links between hip hop, funk and old-school breaks. If you’ve seen ’em before, then you know the score!
They’re on after Joey.
