– Fabrizio Canale (solo singer songwriter harmonica ITALY)
– Tomachi Producer Set (solo electronic soul funk)
– Dixie and her Burlesque dancers in the area funking it up
Only $10 on the door!
…are a band that has fun with funk and ridiculousness. Kara Gordon (fly my pretties) fronts the group of genius musicians. King God (Kara James Gordon), Sir Funkalot (Tomachi Nosnikta), Ben11 (Ben Tapene) and Roscoe (Ross Larsen) are always into a good jam and are looking forward to this summer gig back in the Rei! Let’s party.
Don’t miss Fabrizio! Aside from the usual heavy load of blues renting a suite in our soul we got a new disease: the Country Fever! What can I say: come and see us, for great entertainment and great tunes, such as Fabrizio’s Breakdown and Can Bong Rag.
The band will do a short set around 1pm and then another longer set after 3pm-ish
The last J Day to be held in Albert Park will see local four piece psychedelic funk band The Triptonites nearly burning up on re-entry from sub-orbital warp speed, only to catch fire once more during the madness of this 4:20 sesh-a-thon that is J Day!!
Now you can smoke a giant joint in the park while listening to songs with titles such as: Living life like a trip-tonite, Get ripped tonite with The Triptonites, Tripping out in Mexico, Flying High, Out Of It Guy.
The band will also be playing hits such as Sex With Girls With Tourettes, The Phil Rudd of Funk, Get Inside My Bed, and Get Naked! So get down there on Saturday!
