New dates to be announced

Jug band blues, political satire and lunatic on-stage antics combine as a new-vaudevillian comedy cabaret. Audiences know Mic Conway’s tongue-in-cheek style from “Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band” and “Circus Oz”. From Byron Bay BluesFest to Port Fairy and Woodford Folk Festivals to Adelaide Cabaret Festival… the National Junk Band have become favourites for their unique collision of fire, illusion, passion, irreverent satire, magic, singing saws, flying chooks, musical mayhem and some very funny songs.

Normal is just a setting on the dial of your washing machine.
Yes and ‘Reality Is An Illusion’ is the title of the latest release by Mic Conway’s National Junk Band.
14 tracks mixing tongue in cheek, social comment, modern vaudeville and superb musicianship, this is their first release in four years for the festival favourite.
Special guest stars on the recording include the brilliant Jim Conway and Don Hopkins.

“Don’t be disillusioned get Real” – ‘Reality is an Illusion’ is out in October and to coincide with the release are a short series of live shows including one night only in the Blue Mountains at the refurbished art deco Baroque Room.
This will be an intimate seated capacity set up event and we advise booking early to avoid disappointment!

“The king of Vaudeville in Australia today.” – Lucky Oceans
“Perfectly pitched… In one tune they were able to pack in a lifetime of Cabaret.” – Roy & H.G
“Mic Conway looks like he was born on a cabaret stage… his ease with a variety of cabaret styles from music hall and vaudeville to New Wave testifies to this involvement and his expertise is apparent.” – The Age
