First Night Day One - Daptone Super Soul Revue


January 5, 7:30pm-11pm
Duration 3hours
Venue The Domain, Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney

Price Free


THE DOMAIN

When day turns to night, it's time to party in the park, Sydney Festival style.

In The Domain from 7.30pm, join 60,000 of your closest friends for the Daptone Super Soul Revue; a huge outdoor dance party featuring Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley, The Budos Band, Menahan Street Band and Sugarman 3, with the super cool Binky Griptite from the Dap-Kings as MC for the evening.

From the House of Soul to the Domain stage, the Daptone Super Soul Revue is a nonstop 3-hour show starring a red hot selection of artists from the infamous Brooklyn label Daptone Records, the indie label which has delivered delectable nuggets of Soul, Funk, Gospel and Afrobeat to the world for the last decade. Musician-owned and run, the Brooklyn-based family of soul-drenched talent channels the spirits of bygone powerhouses like Stax and Motown into gilded moments of movement and joy. We dare you not to dance!

Sharon Jones returns to Sydney Festival with her 10-piece backing band The Dap-Kings. Known for her relentless energy and soulful voice, Jones and her awesome band are the perfect choice to celebrate the return of summer and Sydney Festival!

They'll be joined by 60-something brilliant soul singer Charles Bradley, who was discovered late in a very difficult life. A fateful encounter with Daptone Records transported Bradley from an uncertain future to the release of his debut album in 2011 and playing to sold-out audiences around the world. Come see for yourself why he's nicknamed the "Screaming Eagle of Soul"!

With three full-length albums and one EP under their belts, The Budos Band finally make their Australian debut. The sound of the Budos has taken several turns, from the Afrofunk-inspired sonic lava and venomous Ethiopian jazz of their first two records to the Black Sabbath and Pentagram influences that began on Budos III and continue into the preparation of the fourth. Expect all of this at their show, where one might see b-boys break dancing to the band's funk and hip-hop beats; record junkies nodding their heads to the soul-infused melodies; and metal heads thrashing to the dark and ominous guitar and bass riffs. Simply put, the Budos kill it live.

The Menahan Street Band is a collaboration of musicians from The Dap-Kings, Antibalas and the Budos Band, brought together by musician/producer Thomas Brenneck to record hits in the bedroom of his Menahan St. apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn. With influences reaching beyond the funk/soul/afrobeat architecture of the members' other projects into the more ethereal realms of Curtis Mayfield and Mulatu Astatke, and even Ennio Morricone, the Menahan Street Band creates a unique new instrumental sound that is as raw as it is lush.

Saxophonist and founder of Daptone Records Neal Sugarman is behind The Sugarman 3, an organ-driven soul machine who quickly defined its sound as a break from the academics of typical soul-jazz by focusing on the soulful funk element of organ music and avoiding the affectations and clichés which too often alienate jazz musicians from the dancefloor.[/size]
