7pm doors, 9pm show
Following fantastic dance nights at Camelot ‘Barrio Latin Soul’ returns to transport you to the barrios of New York for some smooth Soul, funky Latin and groovy Disco celebrating 1960s and 70s Latin Soul, Latin Disco and Boogaloo.
Fusing African American R&B and Soul with Mambo and Cuban Son Montuno and mainly sung in English, the Latin Soul and Boogaloo movement in the 1960’s had a huge influence on the growing Salsa scene in the 1970’s. The unique funky 11-piece all-star band ‘Barrio Soul’ celebrates the era in style and features members of well-known groups, Mucho Mambo, Watussi, El Orqueston, Johnny G and the E types, Hi-Tops Brass Band, Cumbiamuffin and Son Veneno and will set the dance floor alight with some serious Soul, Latin and Disco grooves from artists such as Mongo Santamaria, Joe Bataan, Joe Cuba, Tito Puente, Ray Barretto and Pete Rodriguez.
Suzy And the Snakepit pay tribute to the Motown tunes that everywhere, around the world, get people dancing in the street. In the 1960s in Detroit, Motown found the perfect formula for pop: catchy, clever songwriting, great singers, and deeply danceable grooves. The musicians that Berry Gordy assembled in Motown’s studio, the Snakepit, also had an enormous influence on rock & roll – Motown tunes have been covered by everyone from The Rolling Stones to The Jam to Motorhead.
Suzy And The Snakepit play a set that revolves around the best of Hitsville USA, from the effervescent hits that you’d have to be a grouch not to love, like Stevie Wonder’s ‘Signed Sealed Delivered’ or The Temptations’ ‘Ain’t Too Proud To Beg’ but also includes some treasured deep cuts from the era. Based around the soulful vocals of Suzy G, and featuring a crack backing band including musicians who’ve played with Sydney indie bands like Pel Mel, Perry Keyes, Fallon Cush, Lazy Susan, and Eva Trout, Suzy And The Snakepit will play hit after hit that will keep you ready for a brand new beat. Bring your dancing shoes!
