The W.M.P. Show is a dynamic and lively musical trio that has manifested for a one-time-only tour of Thailand, brought together from the various performance projects of front-man Will Henderson who is returning to Kamalaya for his second visit. Drawing inspiration from Bob Fosse, Louis Prima and skiffle music to Latin, soul and reggae stylings, supported by a healthy taste of ancient laundry practices, the W.M.P. Show is sure to keep your ears happy and feet tapping.
With a degree in guitar performance from the Sydney Conservatorium, time in Peru and Andalusia studying latin and flamenco styles, along with further jazz studies and escapades into blues, surf rock, hip hop and Balkan music, Will Henderson has many flavors to choose from when mixing his smile ridden musical cocktails. After relocating to Berlin in 2013, Will connected with percussionist Petros Tzekos from Greece and now share the stage as part of the city’s hottest swing bands.
In 2015 Henderson and Harvey toured Asia and Europe with acoustelectric duo 'The Milkshakes' to much acclaim from venues and audiences including Kamalaya for Will’s solo concerts. Harvey fell in love with music from a young age, later studying at Newcastle Conservatorium and Southern Cross University. After initially honing his craft and approach through busking, open mic nights and never-ending musical experiments Harvey has gone onto share festival stages with the likes of Donovan Frankenreiter & guitar virtuoso Joe Robinson. The latter half of 2015 saw Harvey playing solo shows through Australia, Europe and China promoting the release of his self-titled EP. 2016 will see the release of Harvey's second studio album and a national Australian tour.
