Nine piece Melbourne outfit The Bamboos bring their foot-tickling, hip-dropping unique blend of soul, funk, hip hop, mod and psych to downtown Geetroit in support of Casey. Delivering solid sunbursts of on-stage delights, ‘The Bamboos live experience is nigh on unbeatable’ (messandnoise.com). It’s all warm sunshine and sweet soul. Like whiskey washed down with a lollipop.
2012 was a huge year for The Bamboos with the release of the ‘Medicine Man’ album, which culminated in an ARIA, Australian Album Top 20 Debut, iTunes R&B/Soul Chart #1, a sold-out nationwide tour, breakthrough to full-blown commercial radio airplay, three ARIA nominations and inclusion in the Triple J Hottest 100 (#54 for ‘I Got Burned’ feat. Tim Rogers). If you haven’t had the true pleasure of seeing these cats do their thing, don’t miss this opportunity.
