|Local Talent set to rock Summer Sounds at Bunjil Place|
Get ready to bop with some of Melbourne’s hottest local talent at Bunjil Place’s resident outdoor music festival, Summer Sounds. Wander through the Plaza space and soak up a day of live music, Andy-Warhol style stage design, and delicious food and beverages on Saturday 27 February from 6.00pm until late.
Tickets are $10, which will include a redeemable item at the candy bar upon arrival. Four live acts will be headlining a tremendous evening of live entertainment, including:
Melbourne-based Emma Volard is a future-soul artist inspired by the likes of Erykah Badu, FKA Twigs, and Yazmin Lacey. On the Plaza stage, Volard will share her multi-dimensional sounds that mirror elements of R&B, neo-soul and EDM to create a luscious atmosphere to kick off the festival.
Producer and songwriter Bailey Judd will share his genre-bending sound derived from a hotpot of blues, pop and jazz influences. In April 2020, Judd released Dance With You Now and has since been played on Triple J, 3MDR, Obscure Sounds and recently performed on The Isolation Sessions. Melbourne born and raised, Judd has received mentorship from pop writers and through his jazz studies at VC A, the result is a curated a textured mix of musical influences.
Eight-piece soul, R&B and funky fem-hop group The Mamas will follow with a sequin-studded show. Led by four sassy vocalists, The Mamas are well-loved by Melburnians and are a feast for the senses and an invigorating tonic for those in need of a good dance. The Mamas are best known for delivering social messages with a cheeky, comedic twist - something which has succeeded in gaining them adoring fans from all ages and backgrounds.
The Steel Syndicate
The Steele Syndicate will wrap up the night by providing a combination of old school funk, reggae, ska and indie rock. This Brisbane-based octet led by Steele McMahon packs a roaring, four-piece horn section and a rhythm section to match, creating music from soulfu l, contemplative ballads to dance-inducing funk frenzies. The band will unleash their groovier-than-ever tunes influenced by the likes of The Cat Empire, Fat Freddy's Drop, and Earth, Wind & Fire.
