Milford Street Shakers Christmas Extravaganza

Past Event


Duke of George presents The Milford Street Shakers Showstopping entertainment from the glory days of soul Let the good times roll with the Milford Street Shakers, Western Australia’s spectacular 11-piece soul band. The band’s gearing up to perform their annual Christmas concert of hip-shakin’ versions of Christmas classics in true Milford Street Shakers fashion. Christmas tunes will include Jingle Bells, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Silent Night, Santa Baby (just to name a few) as well as all your favourite hits from the Motown era and more! These charismatic cats live and breathe the 1960s, when big bands ruled the dance halls and gospel, rhythm and blues and jazz music converged to inspire some of the most soulful tunes of all time. ‘An 11-piece band is not just a trio playing in the corner, it’s a whole wall of sound.’ Frontwoman Ayla Woodland and her world-class band deliver epic renditions of beloved soul and Motown classics that make it impossible to stand still. The band will feature Dominic D’Leno on drums, Imogen Thomson on percussion, Andy Jarvis on guitar, Austin Salisbury on keyboards, James Vinciullo on bass, Robert Bresland on trumpet, Mark Sprogowski on tenor sax and Liyana Yusof on backing vocals. Elegant like Mad Men, exuberant like Palm Springs and with trademark camaraderie, the Milford Street Shakers never miss a beat, pumping out hit after hit with stunning vocals, pulsating rhythms and howling horns. ‘From the moment the band members walk onto the stage, you know you're in for a good time. They are cool, charismatic and play with high energy and joy. In fact, it's hard to say who is having more fun – the band or audience?’ Make no mistake, this isn’t background music – it’s get-up-and-dance music. ‘Wow! These guys are a bunch of crazy talented and entertaining musicians. The enjoyment they find in the making of music is contagious.’ Doors 6pm, Band at 7:30pm
