MIGHTY DUKE & THE LORDS

Mighty Duke & The Lords are a guaranteed night of tropical calypso madness. Caribbean rhythms and cheeky lyrics to make you dance!

Melbourne, VIC, Australia

Hold on to your coconuts folks; Melbourne’s freshest calypso castaways, Mighty Duke & The Lords, have washed up on these sunny shores to blast horns, shake cans and turn this season into an almighty tropical blowout. Belting out timeless tales of jaded lovers, boiled parrots, supernatural pub crawls and hermaphrodite weddings, Mighty Duke & The Lords electrify with a tailwind of madness, double entendre and rum soaked hullabaloo.

Featuring members from The Lucksmiths, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, The Suitcase Royale and Mojo Juju, MD&TL belt out a cacophony of sizzling brass and junk percussion in sharp linen suits and 1970s cruise ship attire. Some say Calypso began with Trinidad’s West African slaves; other say Harry Belafonte invented it…Either way, Mighty Duke & The Lords bring the big bamboo to you with a raucous, rousing Trinidad treat, filled to the brim with contagious rhythms to get you guzzling rum and shaking like a bonafide calypsonian.
