Mighty Duke & The Lords  - Australia’'s premiere calypso-inspired tropical party band.
 

Following barnstorming sets at major Australian music festivals (Meredith Music Festival, Falls Festival and Dark MOFO), the trop~pop quintet released their debut self-titled album early in 2016 to sold out crowds in Melbourne and Auckland.

With a bountiful cache of outlandish ditties, Mighty Duke & The Lords lead a wild tropical adventure, from the jungles of the Caribbean to the cobbled streets of Buenos Aires, extending the party to the next level – up where the fancy rums are hidden. Cheeky lyrics, wild rhythms and belting horns combine to turn the dancefloor into a monsoonal sweat-storm. Comprising members of Melbourne Ska Orchestra, NO ZU, The Lucksmiths and The Suitcase Royale, Mighty Duke & The Lords put on a show that’s guaranteed to gyrate even the most stubborn of hips. With a packed calendar ahead, having already secured shows at some of Australia’s most well regarded music venues and festivals, Mighty Duke & The Lords are forecast to blow up one hell of a tropical party hurricane!

Performance highlights include: Dark MOFO, Hobart, Meredith Music Festival, Falls Festival, Lorne, Nelson Arts Festival - New Zealand, Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival - New Zealand, MOOMBA, St Kilda Festival, The Famous Spiegeltent, Australia Day Festival (Brisbane Southbank), New Years Eve, Yarra Park, Melbourne, Melbourne Zoo Twilight Sessions , Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Chopped Rod Festival, Lorne Festival Of Performing Arts
