Starting the new year off with a bang including performances at Falls Festival, Days Like This!, Womadelaide and headlining St Kilda Festival, Australian Funk & Soul royalty The Bamboos are hitting the road again to celebrate the launch of their fourth studio album – aptly titled ‘4’.

Their last album ‘Side-Stepper’ reached the Number One position on the Australian iTunes R&B/Soul Chart. Their music has been featured in Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty and in the million-selling Nintendo Wii game de Blob.
The Bamboos have been making waves all over the world with their razor sharp live sets, resulting in several tours of Europe, U.K and throughout Australia. The Bamboos have played the likes of Byron Bay Bluesfest, Parklife, Meredith Music Festival, Golden Plains, Sydney Festival and Tropfest.
