  • We are hoping to kick off by 11pm till around 6 or later depending on vibe
  • We will be waiting for the weather forecast before we make the call as it is outdoors, if it does look like it’s going to rain then we will simply move till next sunny Sunday. (We will be in touch later in the week via email and on the day via SMS in case we have to move the party so we will need your Mob. details too.)
  • If you are a local Musician, Mc, Singer, Percussionist or DJ then we are very keen to hear from you if you would like to play, especially if you down to play percussion along the Djs in an open jam vibe for Sunday. (we are hoping to get thing going as a regular Sunday afternoon local soul funk and hip hop open jam session so if your keen to be part of it let us know)

About the Block-Party Picnics:

In the name of spreading REAL MUSIC! SOUL OF SYDNEY, OUR HOUSE SYDNEY &  TONE have teamed up to put forward a small number of hush-hush out door POP UP street & park-side throw-downs during summer.

The idea is a series of free Pop-UP Sunday afternoon family friendly Picnic’s in various outdoor locations around this beautiful city, featuring rotating sets from local DJ’s & Artists still flying the flag for quality music in Sydney.

If you like the idea of hearing everything from James Brown, Jocelyn Brown, Erykah Badu, De La Soul, Dilla & Masters At Work & Frankie Knuckles in an outdoor location where you can have a Sunday Picnic in the sunshine, then join us as we celebrate the gift of great music, in a relaxed environment with friends and al-fresco on picnic blankets!

————————

We have a number of spots around Alexandria, Sydney CBD, Glebe & East but wait will be waiting to see if the weather holds up before we let everyone know where we will be at, if it is blue sky’s then we are in business and will be sending an sms blast out of where you can be found.

Few points that might help you organize you day better;

· It is a family friendly picnic first and foremost so could be a good idea really to pack an eski/ picnic basket, fruit, drinks and something to sit on etc.

WHY NOW?

This came about due to the overwhelming disappointment with the closure of so many GREAT music venues in Sydney recently. So we felt the time was right to organise a local music communal get together for the locals who have been supporting the music and venues we all love.

We will have a Sound System, Decks & Mic set up, so if you are keen to help out with music or a mini show case, let us know via FB or e-mail.

Peace,

From your good friends at

Soul of Sydney & Tone
