There honestly appears to be a visible renaissance of LIVE Funk & Soul music in this city over the last couple of years. A good friend (with great taste in music) put us on to THE BIG ILCH a while ago & we have been massive fans since we first heard their unmistakable sun-soaked ROOTS, SOUL & HEAVY FUNK groove.
Check out their new release Groove Constellation & be sure to check out their single launch THIS THURSDAY.
Anyone who has ever been to a Soul of Sydney gig would know our resident photographer Dom of DIAMONDS & PEARLS photography. He is officially the biggest PRINCE fans we know and one of the funkiest cats in Sydney.
Earlier this year he took a PURPLE PILGRIMAGE from Sydney to Minneapolis to experience some of the historic PRINCE landmarks, interviews with people who worked with Prince and more.
