THE WOOHOO REVUE
Call them what you will- 'Balkan gypsy brass band, roaring twenties swing ensemble, Wild West fiddle contest or a soundtrack for Looney Tunes'- it barely scratches the surface. There are few, if any parallels to the sound of The Woohoo Revue.
This fiendishly talented sextet create an adrenalin-fuelled celebration fit for dancing, drinking, and ignoring tomorrow. The combination of absolute dance floor mayhem and a strong sense of old world style has inspired the Age Newspaper to describe The Woohoo Revue’s shows as ‘pandemonium in a pin striped suit’. Having cast themselves into isolation for the previous month, the band has re-emerged with a bevy of brand new, untrialed on the public, yet to be politically approved material set to light up the dancefloor like never before. Be the first to get a taste of the band's upcoming album.
THE CUMBIA COSMONAUTS
The Cumbia Cosmonauts are a live Cumbia band from Melbourne, Australia. Consisting of 2 producers, Moses Iten and Soup and a host of guest musicians, their shows encapsulate the feeling of sipping fine tequila and dancing the night away in the Tijuanan desert.
Tropical space phenomenon the Cumbia Cosmonauts blast cumbia into the future and beyond. Expect a science fiction soundtrack lost in the Amazon jungle; tropical vibes in orbit; and ultimately an infectious shuffle-beat anyone can dance to.
