The Bamboos + MSO
Funk powerhouse The Bamboos join the MSO in a celebration of their 20 incredible years as one of Australia’s best soul bands. Since their inception in 2001, The Bamboos made waves internationally (selling out London’s Barbican and The Jazz Cafe) and have gone from strength to strength, releasing nine studio albums, including the hugely popular Medicine Man and The Rules of Attraction with Tim Rogers. Their music has been played on radio in the UK, USA, France, Japan and their infectiously entertaining live act has seen The Bamboos play every major festival in Australia, including Byron Bay Blues & Roots, Falls, Meredith and St Kilda Festivals. “Having the opportunity to perform our music on stage with the full Melbourne Symphony Orchestra at Hamer hall is really the stuff that dreams are made of. After such a challenging 2020 in Melbourne I feel like these hometown shows are going to be extra cathartic for all involved and so rest assured we’ll be pulling out ALL the stops.” – Lance Ferguson, bandleader PROGRAM The Truth Stranded I Don't Wanna Stop Power Without Greed Golden Ticket Red Triangle Daydream Lit Up Tomorrow The Whilhelm Scream I Got Burned Like Tears in Rain Strong Keep Me in Mind FEATURING Vanessa Scammel, conductor The Bamboos Lance Ferguson, guitar Kylie Auldist, vocals Daniel Mougerman, piano, Graeme Pogson, drums, Yuri Pavlinov, bass guitar Phil Binotto, percussion Ross Irwin, trumpet Phil Noy, baritone saxophone Remco Keijzer, tenor saxophone Damon Grant, flute With special guest Tim Rogers The Whilhelm Scream, written by J.
