GROOVE TO REGGAE BEAT
IT’S time to get groovy at the Caloundra Power Boat Club for the Queensland International Ska & Reggae Festival.
Function manager Priscilla Wilcox said this is the second reggae event they are hosting this year.
The last event was a full house with great family vibes.
“It was huge, about 400 people came,” she said.
The power boat club hopes to fill the dance floor again and get as many people to party to the beat of the drum.
“When you get a lot of people you never know what can happen, but we had no issues at all,” Miss Wilcox said.
With such a friendly, energetic crowd, Miss Wilcox said everyone was happy and dancing.
Local and international musicians are coming together to put on an energetic, fun performance this Sunday.
The Sunny Coast Rude Boys, Nicky Bomba from the Melbourne Ska Orchestra and Fat Picnic will be among the acts. Boom Boom Sound System have travelled from London and will be taking a step back in time to spin some class vintage vinyl.
Yamini will bring the soothing reggae vibes and Sambazzy will get the audience on their feet dancing with drums and rhythm influenced from Barbados.
Internationally influenced, The MadTones draw inspiration from the South Pacific and Jamaica.
Caribbean flavoured music and food will keep you going throughout the evening; so, come on down to the Caloundra Power Boat Club at Golden Beach.
Doors will be open on Sunday, July 29 from 1pm. For more information, visit: www.QldSkaFestival.com.
