The Vegetable Plot
Ladies and Gentle stems, bulbs and girls, it's time to do the jumping bean, throw your root down and twist and sprout with the freshest, filthiest bunch in town!!
One night under the soil, a bunch of veggies were vegging out when they heard the sound of music in the skies above. Poking their little green heads out of their dirt to have a look, they were whooshed up into the air by aliens from the planet Wambamboobaloo and transformed into musical superbeings. Now they have been sent back to earth on a mission of love and peas. Their radical purpose: to use the power of roots music to get kids to fall in love with vegetables!
You’ve never heard a kids band quite like The Vegetable Plot. Taking their inspiration from the likes of The Muppets, The Beatles, Bowie and The Mighty Boosh, these award-winning food revolutionaries are using the power of music to bring joy and freshness to the dinner table.
Since picking up the laurels for best kids show at the 2014 Sydney Fringe they have been travelling the country serving up a feast of funky grooves, catchy tunes, colourful characters and truly rotten puns. Some of the stops they’ve made on the way include The Sydney Opera House, City Recital Hall, Splendour in the Grass, Woodford Planting and The National Folk Festival.
With ridiculously catchy songs about avocados, mangoes, potato, spanish onion, sweet corn and more, combined with an earthy sense of humour and a level of musicianship that adults will truly appreciate - some of the band’s biggest fans admit to listening even when the kids aren’t in the car - The Vegetable Plot might just be an unexpected highlight of your Queenscliff Festival experience.
So if you dig rootsy flavours, organic sounds and fresh beets then come and join Aspara Gus, Ru Barb and Sir Paul McCarrotney as they take you deep underground for a ride on the soil train.
