Shiny Bum Singers + The Lurkers @ The Loaded Dog

One hour each from Canberra's Shiny Bum Singers & Sydney's very own Lurkers!

The Shiny Bum Singers are a vocally inspiring & visually entertaining group of mostly public servants who sing their own wicked parodies about the working life of the Australian Public Service.They also stray into political satire but never sedition ... Founded in the a'cappella tradition, guitars, keyboards, bouzoukis, ukuleles, shakers & even guitar cases, are now strummed, picked, plucked, beaten & stroked to accompany inspired lyrics, brilliant humour & shambolic choreography.

Subversive home-spun bluegrass. Hard hitting songs for hard hit people. The Lurkers are political rabble rousers who make songs for singing while you're busy changing the world.
