BandWorldFolk

Described as a “Balkan gypsy band, wild-west fiddle contest and a roaring 20's swing band all rolled into one”, this multi-instrumental monster creates an adrenalin-fuelled on-stage celebration fit for dancing, drinking, and ignoring tomorrow.

Biography

‘Expect old-world charm, furious gypsy tunes and a chunky sound that will either make you dance or wish you’d brought a unicycle. Big fun.' The Melbourne Age

Proprietors of punchy folk jazz, gypsy swing and manic tango, this multi-instrumental monster is responsible for wreaking havoc upon dance floors across the country. Described as a “gypsy band, wild-west fiddle contest and a roaring 20's swing band all rolled into one”, this fiendishly talented sextet of violin, saxophone, trumpet, guitar, bass and drums create an adrenalin-fuelled on-stage celebration fit for dancing, drinking, and ignoring tomorrow.

The Woohoo Revue’s debut album Dear Animals, (2008) has been strongly received and attracted regular airplay on radio stations across the country including Triple J, ABC, PBS, 3RRR and FBI. Like their live show, the album is full, frantic and features incredible musical feats.

Off the back of Dear Animals, the band has been on tour almost constantly, performing well in excess of 100 shows per year at venues and festivals throughout the country. Festival highlights have included:

Cygnet Folk Festival 2010

The Woohoo Revue have hosted various sell-out shows at 300 plus capacity venues including The Northcote Social Club (VIC) on two occasions, The East Brunswick Club (VIC), Jive (SA) and The Merry Muse Folk Club (ACT). In addition, the band has been invited to perform at events as prestigious as The International Design Forum at Melbourne's Hamer Hall and The Melbourne International Film Festival at The Forum Theatre.

The Woohoo Revue have also had the pleasure of supporting international luminaries such as Lulo Reinhardt, grand nephew of Django, and Hungarian heavy-weights Besh o droM.
