Pat Powell’s Ska/Blues/Soul Revue – Fringe side show
Some of Melbourne and Sydney’s finest blues and roots musicians are in Perth for a week of theatre shows for Fringe Festival in late January. They are keen to break out and do a huge live gig - this will be their only free pub show – make sure you get along!
Pat Powell is an ARIA winning Sydney singer. A pioneer of ska music in Australia, he tours internationally as a vocalist with the Melbourne Ska Orchestra
An all star band of Melbourne musicians will join him. Every member of the band runs their own killer band, musos like Steve Boyd (Steve Boyd’s Rum Reverie), Steve Montgomery (The Ska Vendors) and Dave Evans (Band Who Knew Too Much).
Expect to hear some of their own material as well as some 2-tone ska, original Jamaican grooves, blues and soul.
All this – for FREE!!!
8pm – Odin Malchik – up and coming local act
9.00 – DJ Kilmarnock Steve will spin some Jamaican vinyl
9.45 - Pat Powell’s Ska/Blues/Soul Revue – 90min. killer set!
Party-starters, mischief-makers and all round funsters, ARIA award-winning Melbourne Ska Orchestra (MSO) have a well-earned reputation for keeping the dancefloor twirling. Led by gregarious frontman, Nicky Bomba, MSO is a gaggle of brass, beats and frivolity under the skankin’ ska banner. Destined to be one of the liveliest nights of the season, this is an evening for more than a little hot shoe shuffling.
James Ryan is the award winning saxophonist, composer and band leader of The Subterraneans, Sonic Mayhem Orchestra, JR’s Jazz Jam, JR’s Blue and Boogaloo and more…
