Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - FRONT PAGE - Carly Cullen [email protected]­news.com.au

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.
