First up ..... THE BAMBOOS:

Founded in Melbourne in 2000 by bandleader, producer and main songwriter Lance Ferguson, eight-piece powerhouse The Bamboos have continually redefined Australian Soul music and continue their reputation as harbingers of musical evolution. They have received five ARIA Awards and three APRA Music Awards nominations over their seven studio albums and have long been regarded as Australia’s best live bands in the country, regardless of genre, and have graced stages at key festivals such as Splendour In The Grass, Meredith, Bluesfest, WOMADelaide, Falls Festival, and Homebake. “I Got Burned”, the band’s initial collaboration with Tim Rogers in 2012, and the album it came from, ‘Medicine Man’, saw the band reach new heights. The song was voted #54 in that year’s Triple J Hottest 100. In 2015 Rogers and The Bamboos released the acclaimed ‘The Rules Of Attraction’ album, released by iconic imprint Atlantic Records. Marking their 15th year as a performing band, 2015 saw that release spawn another packed out tour as well as an ARIA Award nomination for ‘Best Blues And Roots Album’. The band has also collaborated with vocalists like Aloe Blacc, Megan Washington, Daniel Merriweather and Alice Russell. But with one of the country’s most powerhouse vocalists, Kylie Auldist, as a long standing member, guests just add further magic to what’s already an incredible band, both live and in the studio. Millions across the world are now familiar with the guitar playing of bandleader Lance Ferguson and the vocals of Kylie Auldist, thanks to them being featured on the global smash single “This Girl” by Kungs Vs. Cookin’ On 3 Burners. The remix by the French producer of the 2009 track by the Melbourne trio that Ferguson played with at the time, has been a platinum seller and hit #1 in numerous countries around the world. In addition it was also nominated for ‘Song Of The Year’ at the 2016 ARIA Awards.Amid a glut of revivalists re-treading the retro waters The Bamboos have carved out a signature sound that embraces classic and current influences whilst weaving them into something altogether brand new. “One mans vision of Soul music's evolving potential” ROLLING STONE“Bandleader Lance Ferguson's crafty song-crafting shows an innate ability to extract winsome vocal performances from all his guests... In a word: tight” HERALD SUN “The Bamboos are the highest, tightest and easily the best live band of their kind in the country.” THE AGE
