Eastside Music Café presents:
Mic Conway's National Junk Band
+ a special solo appearance by Azo Bell
Expect the unexpected! These "virtuosos of the bizarre" create a live stage experience that must be seen and heard to be believed. Wielding National guitars, ukuleles, a sousaphone, a phono-fiddle, actual garbage cans and metal sinks, these rhythmagicians make venues rock.
The music and antics of the National Junk Band defies categorisation. Witness fire, illusion, passion, irreverent satire, singing saws, flying chooks and musical mayhem. Is this post-millennium cabaret or new vaudeville? No, it's the National Junk Band!
The fans have described them as :
"the Sex Pistols meets Bing Crosby"Plus . . .
"bluesy with a touch of Monty Python"
"layer upon layer of insanity, lunacy, anarchy"
Singing saw phenomenon Azo Bell from the Old Spice Boys. People often wonder why an accomplished and innovative guitarist chooses to play the ukulele. His band mates claim "it's so he can pick on something even smaller".
