Sydney Rock ‘n’ Roll & Alternative Market
Sunday 26 July, 2015
Manning Bar & Manning House
1 Manning Road, University of Sydney
Doors open 10.30am


The mid-winter Sydney Rock 'n' Roll & Alternative Market at Manning House is the place to dance off the big chill. You just can’t sit still with the July entertainment line-up - Launching their killer new album in the Manning Bar are The Rechords, and downstairs you’ll find records - more than 50,000 of them! Yes, vinyl vultures will not want to miss the monster Record Fair, back by popular demand. Rifle through a colossal collection of rockin’, retro and rare discs that will make you say “I gotta have it!”

Plus a vast array of wonderful stalls, at Sydney’s most unique shopping event and coolest hangout. Over three floors and across two giant courtyards you’ll find: fashion galore; rock ‘n’ roll, alternative, vintage, handmade and unique clothing for men, women and children, jewellery, accessories, posters, artwork, tikis, homewares, collectables, retro hair and make-up stylist, cult DVDs plus more. The record fair features 50,000-plus LPs and 45s covering alternative, punk, metal, rockabilly, blues, jazz, country, reggae, club, hip-hop and every other genre since the dawn of rock ‘n’ roll.

When you’re not shopping up a storm you can dance to your heart’s content in Manning Bar or kick back with the coolest retro tunes in the laid-back Tiki Bar and international food court, take dancing lessons, or admire the classic and vintage vehicle display. There’s also a café, bars, and giant outdoor games the kids will love.

The July line-up stars…

The Rechords “Live Rechording” album launch – Melbourne trio The Rechords are a red-hot crowd favourite. Known for their unique take on hillbilly, swing, alt. country, early RnB, bluegrass, rockabilly and more – as they tell it, “one crazy melting pot of rockin’ harmony-infused country toe-tappin’ goodness” – it’s all captured on their brand-new live LP.

Spurs for Jesus – A little bit country with big dollops of rock ‘n’ roll spiced up with a few surprise flavours, such as rockabilly, gospel, swing, tex mex and more, Spurs love a big shindig and have graced the stage at the market more than once.
The Jordan C. Thomas Band – Inspired by the smooth sights and sounds of the jazz clubs and juke joints of mid-last-century USA, this band’s original take on the traditional, combined with their sartorial savoir faire, gives them a familiar yet unique vibe. It’s cool, it's old-school, and ladies, be prepared to swoon when JCT starts to croon.
The Drey Rollan Band – With their rockin’ vocals, explosive guitar licks and funky rhythms, Drey Rollan, Bobbie Green Little B and Larry The Kid shape a driving energy that’s dynamic and unique. They’re back with their very danceable brand of rock ‘n’ roll, rockabilly, blues, doo-wop and country.

DJs – Rockin’ Marc Rondeau, Rod Almighty, The Crimplenes and Solid Gold Hell DJs. MC – Wolfman Dan.

Plus Swing Dancing Lessons - If you’ve always wanted to give swing dancing a try, there’ll be a class for beginners at the market between 10.45am and 11.45am. It’s just $10 per class, which includes entry to the market. No need to bring a dance partner – just plenty of energy and your best dancing shoes! Pre-registration for classes is required. Email Bruce at enquiries@swingoutsydney.com  to register for the class.

Entry to the Sydney Rock 'n' Roll & Alternative Market is $5, with kids under 12 FREE. Doors open 10.30am. Nowhere else in Sydney offers this much bang for your buck. For more information, including performance times, visit www.rocknrollmarket.com.au

KITTY, DAISY & LEWIS - Metro Theatre

 

Described as “a gift to those of us who still believe in magic” (The Observer), London siblings Kitty, Daisy & Lewis Durham are super talented songwriters/musicians

Their music background is rooted in the tradition where songs are handed down and sung at family gatherings playing any instrument they lay their hands on. They have sold over a quarter of a million albums worldwide, sold out headline tours, have opened shows for major bands including Coldplay and Stereophonics and the trio is also set to take to the stage in July at Fuji Rock Festival.

From a very young age they have been inspiring audiences and gathering an impressive fan base from Amy Winehouse and Eagles Of Death Metal to David Lynch and Dustin Hoffman.

THURSDAY 3rd SEPTEMBER

 

SCOTT BRADLEE'S POST MODERN JUKEBOX

METRO THEATRE

 

 

Nice Events & Mister Dibley presents:


SCOTT BRADLEE's POSTMODERN JUKEBOX


- Australia/New Zealand tour 2015 -

Following a sold out tours across the US and the UK, Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox have announced their first Australian tour – to arrive on our shores in September 2015.

29th August Powerstaion, Auckland
30th August Bodega, Wellington
2nd September Panthers, Newcastle
3rd September Metro Theatre, Sydney
4th September Anitas, Wollongong
5th September The Tivoli, Brisbane
6th September GC Arts Centre, Gold Coast
9th September The Forum, Melbourne
10th September HQ, Adelaide
11th September The Astor, Perth

There is a very good possibility that you may have seen or heard of the terrific musical collective known as Postmodern Jukebox on an array of social media platforms. These clever and talented performances have likely shown up on Facebook walls, twitter pages and more, no doubt captioned with glowing praises for their uncanny ability to take a contemporary pop hit and reincarnate it into a superb, vintage-flavored songbook standard from the last century.

Imagine a Beyoncé, Britney Spears or Taylor Swift song reworked as if they were earmarked for Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, or Nina Simone and accompanied by a rousing mini-big band that sounds like a cheekier Benny Goodman Orchestra on Red Bull.

After their cover of Miley Cyrus’ "We Can't Stop" racked up over 12 Million views on YouTube, Bradlee and his revolving door of seemingly endless talent have become the go-to YouTube channel for music you have to hear. Last month Postmodern Jukebox reached over 2 million subscribers on YouTube and amassed over 232 million views. They have recently been turning Taylor Swift into vintage cabaret with their take on Blank Space, jazzing up Meghan Trainor’s All About the Bass, adding a 70’s soul vibe to Backstreet Boys I Want It that Way plus making a powerful vocal/piano version of Hozier’s Take Me To Church.

Just like with their popular videos, each song in PMJ's live concert bridges the gap between generations, providing fresh, yet familiar-sounding tunes that appeals to all ages. Influential website npr.com
describes Post Modern Jukebox as ‘a vintage filter on today’s Top 40’ whilst Mashable.com 
calls it a ‘viral music empire ... making original content that everyone knows the words to.” Writers and reviewers across the world agree that this is one musical experience that transcends the ages and should not be missed.

GANGSTERS' BALL - Metro Theatre

 

So what exactly is the Gangsters’ Ball?



Well for starters it is not a sit-down dinner or theatre show. It is a faithful recreation of a 1930’s style Speakeasy Club, so you can walk around the venue, dance, gamble, get your hair & makeup done at the styling parlour, have your portrait taken at the photo booth, grab a cocktail or two and mingle with your friends. We encourage attendees to partake in every aspect of the show and experience all the fun and mayhem of 1930’s & 40's entertainment and culture.



VIP ticket holders will be treated to gourmet canapés and decadent treats in their exclusive VIP viewing areas.



Each year over 3,000 Mobsters, Molls and Flappers step back in time to a bygone era. An era when men wore three-piece suits, fedora hats and silk ties, women wore feathers, furs and pill box hats, big bands ruled the airwaves and gangsters ruled the streets.



The Gangsters’ Ball is 5hrs of interactive and non-stop entertainment where the audience is as much a part of the show as the performers. Featuring the biggest names in Cabaret, Sideshow Vaudeville, Burlesque, Magic, Illusion and Big Band Swing, it is an event like no other and one not to be missed.



Every show also features one of Australia’s best Swing Bands, Swing/Rock 'n' Roll DJ’s, The Gambling Den - with Poker, Roulette and Black Jack tables, Pin-up models, merchandise stalls, cocktail bars, vintage styling parlour, photo booth and much, much more...
