Are you a mycophile or a mycophobe?

Considering we have such a reputation for clean, green, environmentally responsible farming of nutrient rich food, it’s surprising that...

Call them what you will – Balkan gypsy brass band, roaring twenties swing ensemble, Wild West fiddle contest or a soundtrack for Looney Tunes – it barely scratches the surface. There are few, if any, parallels to the sound of The Woohoo Revue.

A fiendishly talented sextet of horns, strings and drums, The Woohoo Revue have forged their reputation throughout Australia as a festival favourite with their signature sound and an adrenalin-fuelled celebration fit for dancing, drinking, and ignoring tomorrow. Their fiery compositions and virtuosic musicianship invoke a sense of romance and bravado. Every song expresses a sense of occasion, transporting the listener to a rampaging after-party at a circus sideshow in a palatial ballroom.

Picture yourself as the star of a technicolour movie surrounded by Hellzapoppin’ dancers swinging a Charleston two-step, a 1920s speakeasy in a fantasy setting where all your wildest dreams come true. You find yourself dancing a loose waltz, being thrust into dangerous spins by laughing friends and as your troubles wash away, a tall dark stranger takes you in their embrace and moves you gracefully, elegantly through a passionate tango. Without warning, a Dixieland street party erupts, you link arms for a circle dance, you clap, you shout, you feel alive. You are transported by The Woohoo Revue and you will love them for it.

Be transported on Friday at the SoundLounge, Currumbin.
