Melbourne's Vaudeville Smash back in town with brand new single - playing Solbar Jan 19
No strangers to the Sunshine Coast, Melbourne funksters Vaudeville Smash are back on the road and heading our way with a brand new single, stopping in at Solbar on January 19th.
Made up of three brothers and two mates, no other Australian band sounds like ’em. An explosion of funk, flute, sax, synth and groove, the dance floor is packed at a VAUDEVILLE SMASH gig. In case you’re wondering, they took their name from an Italian children’s karaoke machine that was around in the late ’80s.
Since their first gig at Fitzroy’s Bar Open in September 2009, VAUDEVILLE SMASH have carved their own niche, building a formidable following in their hometown of Melbourne and around the world.
Their international adventures have seen them tour Japan on three occasions, play the South by South West conference in Austin Texas twice, and grace stages in New York, Singapore and Toronto.
Vaudeville Smash's catalogue features 2 full length albums, 3 EPs and an international viral sensation in 'Zinedine Zidane' featuring the late, great Les Murray.
VS continue their ongoing musical evolution, teaming up with Nashville’s Grammy Award winning producer, Bobby Holland. The result is 'La Plume de ma Tante' a bass popping, tongue in cheek, funk, jammation of the nation and first single off their third studio album, set for release in mid 2019.
La Plume de ma Tante tells of the random encounter of 2 eccentric urbanites who have a very strange way of communicating with each other. Check out the new video. Directed and edited (in his directorial debut) by frontman Marc Lucchesi.
