The Allniters Vs. The Porkers

Barfly Promotions & Ska Beat Pictures present


Tonight’s Heavyweight Main Event…

THE ALLNITERS
vs.
THE PORKERS

With special guests

The OzSkas vs.Project Collective Ska


Plus DJs Wally Wally and Prince Vince

Sydney will be ska’d for life when this crackin’, skankin’ line-up of heavyweights take centre stage to battle it out for Ska supremacy at Sydney Uni’s Manning Bar on Friday March 6. Bigger, bolder and brassier than ever, the most successful ska act in Australian history, The Allniters, are still ‘allriters’ decades on from turning the 80s live music scene into one rude, raucous party with their stomping rhythms and contagious sense of fun. The whole nation caught the Ska bug as their album D-D-D-Dance went gold after two weeks and hits like Montego Bay topped the charts. The Allniters have lost none of their upbeat energy, and the 2015 line-up features most original members from a band of 10!

Bringing serious grunt to the bill, The Porkers are in rip-snorting form and ready to take on The Allniters. They’ll be coming at us with the 'wall of noise' they've brought to Soundwave 2014 and other festival stages around the globe since spearheading the ‘third wave of Ska’ in the late 90s. The Porkers pack a punch with their skanky Jamaican rhythms and melting pot of Reggae fused with Funk, Punk and Metal riffs, sometimes all in the same song! Just add beer to the super-energetic stage show from the men of pork.

With Special Guests: The OzSkas rockin’n’skankin your socks off with their kick-arse brand of Ska/Rocksteady/Reggae. You can’t sit still once this six-piece hit the stage to pump out their explosive mix of classics and originals, with a line-up featuring some of Australia's most respected names in Ska and Reggae. But can they out-skank their opponents, Project Collective Ska? Influenced by 60s Jamaican Ska, this Sydney nine-piece features a blazing horn section and crazy rhythms that never fail to get the crowd jumping. DJs Wally Wally and Prince Vince will keep the party jumping in between acts.

Doors open 8pm

SATURDAY 7th MARCH

"Sons Of Sun"

Camelot Lounge, Marrickville

 

SONS OF SUN – ELVIS, JERRY LEE, JOHNNY AND ME (THE SAM PHILLIPS STORY) is a
rock and roll play about Sun Records, Memphis, and the artists that started their careers there. After a sell out show in May, Sons of Sun returns to the Camelot Lounge.

Told through the character of its founder Sam Phillips, his assistant Marion Keisker, and the famous musicians that Sam recorded, this Australian show features a three piece live band fronted by John Kennedy, performing thirty-five songs from Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and many more. The tenacious Sam Phillips is played by Sydney actor, Matt Charleston, with co-stars Victoria Beck and Ben Maclaine taking on multiple roles from Sam’s assistant Marion Keisker to Howlin’ Wolf.

Sydney’s weekly The Music magazine described the show as, “An impressive troupe of professionals developing a rarely heard narrative with enthusiasm and simple creativity.”
The show seamlessly blends the narratives and songs to produce a compelling, original and heartbreaking blend of rock’n’roll theatre.

Sydney musician John Kennedy, of Love Gone Wrong fame began developing the Sons of Sun idea in 2011 with the release of his Sons of Sun Vol 1 CD. Award winning Melbourne playwright Kieran Carroll (The Giraffe’s Uncle, 3XY OR I DIE!) has written an accompanying script to Kennedy's beautiful renditions.

Written by Kieran Carroll from an original idea by John Kennedy
Starring Matthew Charleston, Victoria Beck and Ben Maclaine
Music performed by John Kennedy, Steve Broughton and Murray Cook
SONS OF SUN – ELVIS, JERRY LEE, JOHNNY AND ME (THE SAM PHILLIPS STORY)

Each Swing Pit on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month will be beginner focused with classes fun and simple to get those starting off in swing a chance to learn some moves to practice throughout the evening.
