Housesolution Pres. NYE 012 Masters Of Work (MAW) VENUE CHANGE – LITTLE LOUIE VEGA, KENNY DOPE GONZALEZ BACK TO BACK AT CIVIC HOTEL


Why the “VENUE CHANGE”….

Our initial discussions with the previous venue in early November, 4am was the finish time. We were very happy to work with that and needless to say very excited! But it seems that the powers that be want the majority of the city to close at 2AM on NYE!! We were informed by the venue a few weeks ago the permitted operating time was 2am. We tried to work through this but steadily the feedback reinforced what we already felt. We needed to find another venue with a later permitted operating time. Fortunately, we were able to find a venue with a 5am licence at short notice. The details are below – thank you for your understanding and patience… Despite all the amendments we do have an INCREDIBLE night in store with one the best “House” Music Production teams on the planet over the last 20 years who defiantly mix, house, hip-hop, funk, disco, latin, African and Jazz into a universal groove.

Venue….

Over two levels and a laneway (including smoking area). Civic Underground and Civic Saloon. Entry via 64 Goulburn Street, Sydney. Easier transport (including Taxis), Easy Parking, Avoid the stress of the rest of the city closures etc.

:: Civic Underground Club Room in the Basement $120 Ticket, 11PM – 5AM. Will feature an intimate set from MAW between 1-4am to an audience of just over 300… This will sell out fast!!! It’s A club space similar in feel to Cielo in New York with booths, an impressive sound and lighting system. The vibe in here will be electric! These ticket holders will have access to ALL areas.

:: Civic Saloon Ground level $40 Ticket: 11PM -5AM. Featuring a pick of Sydney Best Dj’s and also features a flavour from MAW’s set from the Underground by a live music feed into this room. Therefore it’s a great inexpensive way to enjoy NYE til LATE whilst still getting that MAW feel throughout the room. These tickets will not be granted access into the MAW room unless capacity allows after the MAW set for example.

Where to Buy Tickets….

Civic Underground Room $120 – limited numbers available directly from Housesolution contact RiB 0418 617 875 or RiB with a small number left online through TICKETMASTER http://www.ticketmaster.com.au/Masters-At-Work-tickets/artist/1804272

ELITE FUNK AND SOUL BAND : KASHMERE STAGE BAND (US) TO TOUR AUSTRALIA 2013


Sydney Festival and Funkdafied audiences will witness for the first time ever, the compelling and rare musical ingenuity from members of the legendary and award-winning Kashmere Stage Band – the all funk big band survivors of the late 1960’s United States Big Band competition. Eleven original members of the thirty-something Kashmere Stage Band will take to the stage  as part of Sydney Festival 2013, alongside shows in Brisbane and Melbourne.

At a time when citizens took to the streets in unison with clenched fists held high as a powerful symbol of unification and resistance, racial segregation and political uncertainty compounded civil unrest, consequently reducing America to its knees.

One band stood to overcome the violence that permeated an entire nation, uniting a community together, breaking the profound racial tension through the power of Funk music! 

In 1967, Texan music teacher Conrad O. Johnson formed a band with his all African American high school students at Kashmere High School called the Kashmere Stage Band. Competing in the fiercely competitive, conservative and almost entirely white national High School Stage Band Competitions, the Kashmere Stage Band exceled beyond expectations.

Johnson and his big band broke down racial barriers and challenged the status quo with their elaborate funk arrangements. He also changed the band’s look, encouraging them to embrace their own inimitable style by introducing an unprecedented element of showmanship; with each section choreographing slick moves with their instruments.

Amassing multiple awards around the nation, they went on to perform in Europe and Japan upon invitation. Reigning as the untouchable champions of the Big Band prestigious competition for years, Johnson not only changed the lives of hundreds of students, he instilled racial pride, faith and inner strength at a time when such values seemed a distant fable. Ultimately, his teaching methods went on to impact an entire education system, valuing and placing importance on the arts. His rigorous and heart-felt teaching methods were later espoused by the US education system, and to this day, continues to make an impact upon the lives of many students.

The band’s recordings have been collected by crate-diggers, feted (and sampled) by luminaries like DJ Shadow, and reissued by respected record label Stones Throw Records. All members of Kashmere Stage Band are aged in their 50’s, proving that music can not only serve as a powerful tool for education and change, but transcends age, race and gender.

What happens next proves to be historic!

For Sydney siders, Sydney Festival’s Paradiso at Town Hall and Sutherland Entertainment Centre, Kashmere Stage Band live performance is preceded by a screening of the fascinating documentary about them entitled Thunder Soul, narrated by Jamie Foxx. This is inspiring documentary details the history of the band and them coming together again for a special performance 30 years later. It is a truly inspirational documentary that details the legacy of both the Kashmere Stage Band and their legendary teacher Conrad ‘Prof’ Johnson.

Soul: Omar signs to Freestyle Records | New album ‘The Man’ out Spring 2013


Kudos Records

Tuesday 18 December, 2012

Press Release: Omar signs to Freestyle Records

Inline Image
2013 marks 10 years since Freestyle Records began, and we are immensely proud to announce that our tenth anniversary will see the release of brand new music by one of the most creative, well respected, world renowned UK soul artists: Omar.

You can tell much about an artist from the musical company they keep, and in a career spanning 23 years and counting, Omar’s list of collaborations is a whose who of greatness; Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Common, Angie Stone, Estelle, Syreeta Wright, Carleen Anderson, Leon Ware and Lamont Dozier are just some of the artists who appreciate his incredible musicality.

Of this fresh new deal with Freestyle Records, and the forthcoming album ‘The Man’, Omar says: “I’m very glad to be joining the guys at Freestyle, they have a unique ear for music which suits me down to the ground!”

Freestyle a&r manager Greg Boraman remarked, “As someone who has closely followed Omar’s career from the outset, to have Omar and his new music on the label feels like a wonderful and exciting partnership, as he, like Freestyle, continues to fly the flag for quality, soulful music with integrity.”

Beautifully blending together all of Omar’s various musical influences, ‘The Man’, his seventh album, crystallizes his many years of experience and talent into a fantastically powerful, mature and highly individual soundscape. It drips with catchy hooks with his unmistakable vocal stylings proving, as if there was any doubt, that he remains one of the UK’s primary talents.

And Omar’s unquestionable contribution to UK music gets official recognition this week, as he is off to Buckingham Palace to collect his MBE!

You can expect ‘The Man’ to be released in 2013 on Freestyle Records.
