In the name of spreading REAL MUSIC in a free family environment SOUL OF SYDNEY & OUR HOUSE SYDNEY have teamed up to put forward a small number of hush-hush out door POP UP street & park-side throw-downs.
The idea is a series of free pop up Sunday afternoon family friendly Picnic’s & Block Parties in various outdoor locations around this beautiful city, featuring rotating sets from local DJ’s & Artists still flying the flag for quality music in Sydney.
If you like the idea of hearing everything from James Brown, Jocelyn Brown, Erykah Badu, De La Soul, Dilla & Masters At Work & Frankie Knuckles in an outdoor location where you can have a Sunday Picnic & BBQ in the sunshine, than join us as we celebrate the gift of great music, in a relaxed environment with friends and al-fresco on picnic blankets!
The winter Block Party edition out of the Park will be on Sunday July 22nd 2012 & in a warmer indoor / outdoor courtyard & laneway for an afternoon of usual ‘feel-good’ funk vibes, but this time with a BBQ set up for anyone to use & a special live street art showcase as part of 'Sydney Street Art Project’.
The Block Party will feature a couple of Sydney’s own ‘GOD-FATHERS OF FUNK’ as guest selectors along with Block Party residents DJ’s on rotation;
- ALL SOULED OUT DJ’S (Stephen Ferris & Graham Mandroules)
- SUPERBREAK (www.soundcloud.com/kostaellis)
- Phil Toke (www.ourhousesydney.com)
- Queen Shirene D’Silva
- Soul of Sydney DJ’s
