[With special guests Project Collective Ska | On sale 9am, Fri 27 Mar AEDT]
Special guests Project Collective Ska + Melbourne Ska Orchestra: 7:30pm
Venue: Joan Sutherland Theatre
Following victorious appearances at Glastonbury and the Montreal Jazz Festival, the 20-piece Melbourne Ska Orchestra are heading north to take on Vivid LIVE, bringing a heaving set of brass blasts and sweat-inducing grooves for a massive Saturday night party in the Joan Sutherland Theatre.
Conducted by Nicky Bomba (Bustamento, ex-John Butler Trio), the MSO’s marathon sets span the golden ska period of 1963 through to contemporary classics.
The Orchestra will be joined by Sydney’s own young Project Collective Ska: two generations of riddim-masters will raise the roof in a skanking takeover of Vivid LIVE.
