This is not to be missed. Come along and enjoy the good vibes they will be bringing to us.
Realising that music is one of the best tools for bringing about cultural change, globetrotting permaculture troubadour and ukulele-strumming frontman of Formidable Vegetable Sound System, Charlie Mgee committed himself to composing a repertoire of swingin’ tunes addressing the principles of permaculture in various musical styles ranging from ‘energy-descent electroswing’ and ‘climate-change dubstep’ to ‘peak-oil polka’ and ‘post-apocalypso’, which make for an eccentrically entertaining and unforgettable dancefloor experience when pumped through the ‘rad-ish beet-box’.
Joining him on stage is a throng of insanely talented musicians and performers including Melbourne’s legendary beatboxing, horn-playing multi-instrumentalist, Mal Webb, who has been involved with FVSS since the beginning as well as his partner Kylie Morrigan who has shredded violin in orchestras alongside the likes of Led Zeppelin, Barry White and Stevie Wonder. Numerous other virtuosic members come and go as they please, dependent on carbon footprint, availability and the millions of other bands they all seem to be in.
Formidable Vegetable Sound System has performed all over the world alongside such legendary favourites as Fat Freddy’s Drop, The Cat Empire, JPOD, Spoonbill, Thom Yorke and The Rolling Stones (actually!).
In a world gone mad, there’s one thing you can do to improve the party: Lettuce Turnip the Rad-ish Beets and Rocket!
