Niche Productions & Premier Artists are pleased to present to you, the ‘The Rock 'n Soul Medicine Show’, a series of national performances which brings together two iconic Australian artists in Tim Rogers (You Am I) and The Bamboos (Australia's greatest Soul/Funk export).

Sparks flew when Rogers collaborated with Bamboos bandleader Lance Ferguson on one of the biggest songs of 2012, “I Got Burned”, which was included on the double ARIA Award nominated Bamboos album ‘Medicine Man’. The track was championed by the likes of Triple J, ABC Radio, and Triple M and was catapulted by a legendary live performance on ABC TV's ‘Adam Hills In Gordon St Tonight'. The song was to become the seed for this unique and explosive collaboration called the ‘The Rock 'n Soul Medicine Show’.

"Tim Rogers operates on a musical plane that is so highly charged with pure, raw emotion that I know these shows are going to be crazily enjoyable and above all: DANGEROUS...” - Lance Ferguson

Whether as part of You Am I, as a solo artist, or as a performer on stage and screen, Tim Rogers has carved a uniqueartistic career now in its third decade, that has been littered with awards, accolades, gold and platinum albums sales, and sold out shows across the globe. Fresh from an extensive national tour in support of his latest album ‘Rogers Sings Rogerstein’, Tim embarks on this latest phase with an enthusiasm and gusto, and a generosity of spirit that we have come to expect.

“I sallied outta our session for "Burned" daydreamin’ of being asked to do anything more with Lance and the band, whether it be prepare cocktails for Kylie or darn (Bamboos bassist) Yuri's velvet socks. I'm pledging my pins and laying aside my B-List moves for this tour. Got A-list tastes in my tonsils. We aiming to please.” -Tim Rogers

Bandleader Lance Ferguson and his nine piece Melbourne outfit The Bamboos have come a long way since forming in 2001. Over five acclaimed albums, loved by both critics and devoted fans alike, their unique blend of hip hop, soul, funk, mod, psych and more, has made them impossible to pigeonhole. 2012 has been a big year with ‘Medicine Man’ becoming their biggest album to date and earning them ARIA nominations for Best Urban Album and Best Independent Release. The third nomination, for Best Live Act, was the sweetest of all as it was recognition of their hard earned reputation as one of the most explosive live acts in the country.

The full ten piece onstage line-up for these very special shows will be led by Tim Rogers on vocals, bandleader Lance Ferguson on guitar, and will of course feature the stunning resident Bamboos vocalists Kylie Auldist and Ella Thompson.

These raucous merchants of Soul and Rock 'n Roll will be rambling into your town very soon, peddling musical elixirs new and old from their own extensive back catalogues, alongside some carefully hand-picked covers.
