MIC CONWAY and ROBBIE LONG

Mic Conway is an Australian treasure. He has an illustrious history as a co-founder of The Captain Matchbox Whooppee Band and founding member of Circus Oz. He will be performing with Robbie Long.  Robbie is a richly experienced, multi-instrumentalist who has covered miles of styles in his wonderful career, spanning jazz/rock foundations, session work, bluegrass and many other musical genres, and including engineering and producing.  He was recently nominated for 3 Golden Guitars at Tamworth Country Music Festival as producer. 

In a circus of comedy, music and magic these two present an array of hilarious and idiosyncratic songs that will make your jaw drop, toes tap and sides split. In this incarnation, Mic is a storyteller of tall tales and true. There are new songs and golden oldies. Mic croons "It’s Only a Paper Moon" and a heart-breaking version of "Mad World", dispenses good advice in "Never Bite a Married Woman on the Thigh" and revisits Captain Matchbox classic "My Canary Has Circles Under His Eyes" and Tom Lehrer's "Masochism Tango".  There's magic, juggling, cavorting and that trademark tongue-in-cheek sense of humour. It's surreal vaudeville and it's unforgettable.
