Melbourne Festival Live Review: The Bamboos - Foxtel Festival Hub (18.10.14)

The Melbourne Festival has been spending the last week celebrating, well, Melbourne, and how could you honour the city without mentioning the magical musical history that haunts the city streets. So there's no surprise in the acts chosen, from hip-hop bastion and social advocate Urthboy, to a tribute to one of the greatest musical icons of the city's lineage, Rowland S Howard. It makes sense that the honouree of this night is just as beloved, that being the funk soul act The Bamboos, who just the night before were honoured with an award for their saxophonists.

Josh T. Pearson is a softly spoken man, each word delivered as deliberately as one of his heart wrenching numbers. The man and his body of work are not void of ambition with his last effort The Last Of The Country Gentlemen full of delicate epics that push past the ten minute mark more often than not. It’s this mockery of the status quo that has earned him a legion of fans the world over.
