The Milford Street Shakers, Soul Slap

This event has passed!

High powered nine-piece Sixties Soul band The Milford Street Shakers are set to bring their energetic brand of music to the newly opened Freo.Social on Saturday, April 20.

The new venue on the site of the historic Artillery Drill Hall has been refurbished in cooperation with the National Trust of WA to preserve and reflect the history and heritage of the building, something Milford Street Shakers band leader Dom D’Leno said resonated with the band’s re-interpretation of the masters of Soul music from 50 years ago.

“It’s about having respect for our history and culture and looking forward to a new journey,” Dom says.

The Milford Street Shakers will be supported at the dinner show concert by Albany-based DJ Dave Blaine, who will be driving up for the show to play R&B tracks with a touch of soul. The Milford Street Shakers will then present Soul Slap, a journey packed with the high energy sound of 1960s Soul music.

The show offers both general admittance and tickets for dinner and the show, but seating is limited to 160 and available on a first in best dressed basis. Guests will be able to choose dishes from a variety of food trucks that will be a semi-permanent feature of the venue.

Dom says the audience will be able to look forward to music that bridges the simplicity of the blues from the era with the sheer expressivity of R&B in a dance party of epic proportions.

“People will be able to get up and show us their moves to dance styles like Do the Watusi, the Mashed Potato, and the Twist.”
