Get excited, join us at Totara Street for a Funk and Soul Dance Party and shake the house down with two great bands. DJ/Saxophonist Lewis McCallum warms up the crowd from 8pm.
Sex on Toast (AUS)
Direct from Melbourne 6-piece Sex on Toast specialise in raw early 80’s funk, hard-edged new jack swing, and heartfelt blue-eyed soul. Their choreography, complex arrangements, performative larrikinism and danceability have won the hearts of casual punters and hardcore fans alike.
