Rounding out their fifth year of raucous classic rock, soul and delicious surprises, The Pragmatics invite you to share with them that holiest of party nights, NYE, at the intimate and magnificent Django Bar, in sun-soaked Marrickville.
Joined by a selection of special guests, including The Brassmatics horn section, The Prags will deliver three swinging sets of ragged glory, til well past midnight.
The Prags have sold out every Camelot show (!) to a devoted throng who are on their feet with hands in the air thanks to a unique selection of shout-out-loud anthems and deep cut discoveries. Here’s why…
Imagine a band that grooves through Motown: The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye. Then, like a Queenslander on Bundy, gets punchy with Bowie, Queen, Accadacca, The Jam and Thin Lizzy. Or, with morning-after regret, sings harmony-laden tracks from The Band, Bee Gees, Beatles, Joe Cocker, Fleetwood Mac and Rod Stewart. And then, with a fresh application of lippy and a scrunchy, combines 80s classics from Dexy’s Midnight Runners, INXS, Simple Minds, Style Council, Tears for Fears, Johnny Cougar, Bryan Adams, Billy Bragg and more! With horns!
You’re right, it doesn’t make sense! Where is the logic? The through-line! The principles!
Whatever. This is Pragmatic. We’re gonna have a party.
Get in early to avoid disappointment.
