Reggae Got Soul
Blue Kahunas and the Soul Shakedown DJs present …
REGGAE GOT SOUL
On the second Saturday of every month, starting: Saturday, 14 September, 2019
Reggae Got Soul, has a new home at Blue Kahunas! Newcastle’s own Tiki Bar… embracing rum from all corners of the world and bringing all things Tiki in the Hunter Street Mall.
Take a step back to an era of cocktails, and when platters that matter ruled the airwaves…
Reggae Got Soul is a musical trip to another time and another place – the sound of black America as it changed from blues via rock ‘n’ roll into soul.
These exciting sounds wafted across the Gulf of Mexico and over Cuba to Jamaica, where the people tuned in their wireless, and sound systems pumped them out at their dances, shaping Jamaican music as we know it. From ska in the early 1960s, through rocksteady and into the reggae chartbusters that topped the Jamaican and UK charts, Reggae Got Soul introduces a whole new audience to the idea that the old music can be as exciting as the new!
The Soul Shakedown DJs will get you in the mood with the best selection of vintage reggae, soul, funk, Latin, popcorn, R&B, rocksteady and traditional ska, all on vinyl 45s and 33s.
When: Saturday 14 September, 2019, and the second Saturday of every month.
Where: Blue Kahunas, Hunter St Mall.
Time: 7.30pm – 11.30pm
