With a mind-blowingly talented all-star cast featuring trombone, trumpet, and a bass guitar made out of a pumpkin from Mal Webb, biodynamic drum-breaks from Michael Barker (John Butler Trio/The Black Sorrows), chicken-pickin’ guitar licks from Alex Burkoy (Tinpan Orange/The Cat Empire) swingin’ voilin from Kylie Morrigan (Stevie Wonder/Barry White/Led Zeppelin) and the ukulele spaghetti-squash & smoky paprika voice of Charlie Mgee, the collective have been propagating, pollinating and pot-roasting their second album for nearly a year with the help of Melbourne electronic producer, Spoonbill (Opiuo/DubFX).
Having performed everywhere from Glastonbury Festival to the local farmer’s markets Formidable Vegetable Sound System are no strangers to rocking crowds of all ages with meaningfully hilarious songs about sustainable living, health & well-being for the future ahead.
