Mal Webb and Kylie Morrigan

Vocal adventurer, multi-instrumentalist and looping beatboxing songwriter Mal sings his brain provoking songs using all sorts of vocal techniques, guitar, mbira, slide trumpet, trombone, chromatic harmonica and a loop recording pedal called Derek. And Kylie (who's played with Orchestra Victoria and the likes of Stevie Wonder and Barry White!) provides violin and voice in a perfect balance to Mal's nutsness. Their arrangements are intricate and playful. Imagine Einstein, Dr Seuss and Paganini making pancakes.

 

Djirri Djirri Dance Group

 

 

We are called the Djirri Djirri Dance Group, which is the Woi wurrung (Wurundjeri)  name  for Willy Wagtail.  We named our group Djirri Djirri as it is a little black bird who is well known to dance all the time.

We offer dance that is a contemporary interpretation of our culture with the essence of traditional dance/ceremony.  All of our dances have a story about creation, family and Country. We have many children who we encourage to take on a leadership role through the use of language and knowledge exchange in dance creation.

Lily and King

 

Lily and King are a quirky, musical junkyard from Melbourne. Their aim is to use all of their limbs for making music at the one time. Lily and King create rousingly catchy music that sits somewhere between a captivating 40's nightclub routine and the raw, rambunctious spirit of New Orleans street buskers. 

Dixieland punk, sailor songs, weird carnie show tunes and the odd bit of curious pop, their music is joyful, beautiful and a bit dirty and wicked too. Their act is a lilting, luring, sensual haze of smoky opiate vocals that transport the captivated audience to a redly lit burlesque bar from the 1940s, where the smoke curled thickly in the air and people only ever drank whiskey. 

With trombone, sweet and sassy vocals, toy piano, guitar, half a drum kit and an abundance of foot stomping, their melodies are infused with wild exuberance and joie de vivre  - a Lily and King gig is a truly wild and joyful experience.
