The Shiny Bum Singers are a Canberra singing group who entertain audiences with witty parodies and cheeky satires of politics, public service and everyday life. They recycle well-known songs in many genres, applying fresh lyrics to tell new stories, and encourage the audience to singalong to projected words. The Bums have been performing since 1999 and more recently have been writing and performing their own musicals to packed venues.
At Smith’s Alternative’s National Anti-Folk Festival (NAFF) on Saturday 8 April from 4-5pm, they will be performing a selection of love songs…well they were love songs but they’re NOT LOVE SONGS anymore! Now they tell gripping tales about the Public Service and its political masters. Come and sing-a-long and have a laugh!
