Like a force of nature this Sydney based artist has continued to carve deep and glorious pathways in music, burlesque, cabaret, performance art, hosting, modelling, DJing and sound production since 1990 nationally and globally. With a passion to stay true to his art and collaborators whilst always challenging and pushing the envelope further it is hard to keep up with what Michael is working on next. Be it a live cabaret show, a new album or cheeky neo-burlesque act the only guarantee is that it will be an experience and offered from the bottom of the artist’s heart.
Michael has just finished touring his newest show “Michael Wheatley & the Dirty Carpet Disco Band” for Perth Fringe World and Adelaide Fringe and already seeing great crowds at the shows and a 4 STAR review in The Australia Times.
Next up sees Michael & the Dirty Carpet Disco Band launch their newest album in a city near you. First up is Sydney at Foundry 616, May 18th with special guests Kelly Ann Doll, Jazida, Bek Jensen and support from A Royal Uprising.
“‘The carpet’s clean… we’ll have to do something about that,’ said Wheatley as he slid behind the piano dominating the Ellington’s stage.” “4 STARS”
