ARIA award-winning Mic Conway is a singer, actor, musician, song writer, fire eater, magician, tap dancer, juggler and more.
Mic was born into a family of vaudeville theatre and opera. In the 1970s, together with his brother Jim Conway, Mic founded the Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band. To their surprise it became a cult phenomenon, recording seven records, two of which achieved gold status. Mic also joined the legendary Pram Factory Theatre in Melbourne, creating Soapbox Circus, where he was ringmaster, musician, juggler and acrobat. In 1978 Soapbox became the now world famous Circus Oz of which Mic was a founding member.
Mic has toured across Australia, Britain, Germany, USA, New Zealand and Asia delighting audiences of all ages. He has written and recorded many albums and worked across the board in theatre, music, cabaret, television and film.
His current outfit, National Junk Band have become festival favourites for their unique collision of fire, illusion, passion, irreverent satire, magic, singing saws, flying chooks, musical mayhem and some very funny songs.
His duo show with Robbie Long is stripped back, irreverant, and shameless, playing unusual and idiosyncratic tunes that will make your jaw drop, toes tap and sides split.
