The Bamboos

funk // soul

The Bamboos are probably the finest funk band of the era. Sometimes infused with serious female vocal talent like Alice Russell, but often rocking a solid instrumental groove that needs no adornment, they got you covered; whether you’re a dancer or a head-nodder. Australian-based but signed to the UK’s Tru-Thoughts: their new single is firey hot. True story: this track has had my mom dancing daily since she heard it! Feel this.

A hook you cannot refuse.

    The vocalist is the amazing Kylie Auldist. If you haven’t purchased her cd, do it now.

    Finest funk band of the era. Yes they are good, but hard to say with the Dap Kings around.
