The 2017 Queensland Cabaret Festival presents THE DUSTBIN HOFFMANS – Brisbanality
Meet Nigel and Ross – together they are The Dustbin Hoffmans. It’s hard to believe that only 35 years ago, these boys hadn’t even met and now after waiting for the invention of the personal computer, the Compact Disk, the internet, the smartphone, Twitter and Facebook, they are now Australia’s most experienced boy band.
Born and raised in Brisbane, The Dustbin Hoffmans have been acclaimed by critics as “sensible, yet stupid” and “intelligent, yet ridiculous”. Their music evokes deep feelings of happiness, adventure, irony and fun and Brisbanality they celebrate dysfunction, mediocrity, life’s little banalities and the smallest highway in the world.
These guys have been amusing and bemusing Brisbane audiences with their quirky brand of comic pop since their debut performance at The West End Cabaret in 2007. Join Nigel Kimber and Ross McLennan for a spot of cabaret on the wry side.
“… the gags come thick and fast…although there is enough time between the (mostly) gentle humour, for music that deserves serious attention, somewhere out in the fringes ‘twixt They might be Giants and Dog Trumpet.” Noel Mengel, Courier Mail
