A 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.
We have a spot with a stack of grass around with plenty of room for kids, it is 5 mins from city in Alexandria, there is shade but best people bring some hats etc.
We will have a basic DJ set up playing everything from Sade to James Brown to De La Soul, Erykah Badu & Masters At Work. It is open decks with rotating DJ’s (but best people get in touch via email@example.com if keen to play to confirm time slots)
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)
For local Soul music fan then we simply wants you there enjoying the music, so get a group of friends together, spread the word and come down for a day out it the park to some real music.
Thanks again for the support we have been inundated with positive feedback after the last party, will be in touch by week’s end,
Here is a clip of some of the fun from the last party a few weeks back, right after a storm when we were forced to move for shelter in a brick pit for an afternoon of classic Chicago HOUSE, SOUL, FUNK and.. ERIC B and RAKIM!
What more can be said about this cat? At Soul Of Sydney, we think Terrence Parker is the DJ’s DJ ! The DJ that Detroit legends like Jeff Mills, DJ Bone, Derrick May & Juan Attkin would go to see. Coming to Australia for the first time, Terrence brings skills that very few dj’s possess, and an ability to rock a dance floor no matter what style of music he plays.
Check TP in action dropping some Hip Hop in Japan.
This was a classic Disco cut to begin with & when someone like Frankie Knuckles gets hold of the masters, you know its going to be a special moment in HOUSE music. If you ask me it is also one of the finest bits of remixing work he has ever put his name to. The man just seems to have a such a great ablity to remix R&B & Soul into a House like nobody else.
