Mic Conway's National Junk Band
Jug band blues, political satire and lunatic on-stage antics combine as a new-vaudevillian comedy cabaret. Audiences know Mic Conway’s tongue-in-cheek style from “Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band” and “Circus Oz". From Byron Bay BluesFest to Port Fairy and Woodford Folk Festivals to Adelaide Cabaret Festival, the National Junk Band have become festival favourites for their unique collision of fire, illusion, passion, irreverent satire, magic, singing saws, flying chooks, musical mayhem and some very funny songs.
Based on the vaudeville program, atmosphere and charm, The National Junk Band have created a fabulous new show: Vaudevillia.
"Everything new will be old again" as music, magic and comedy intermingle with sight acts, special guest character cameos and more, creating a recipe for mirth, mayhem and madness.
Wielding National guitars, ukuleles, a sousaphone, Strohviol, actual garbage cans and metal sinks, there is nothing in the world quite like Mic Conway's National Junk Band.
