Infectious SKA Grooves with the Sunny Coast Rude Boys

The much-loved Sunny Coast Rude Boys are bringing their infectious energy back to The Brewery at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi for a night of beefy horn lines, jumping grooves and classic ska on Saturday 29 April.

Sunny Coast Rude Boys frontman Mick Hughes is excited to bring the old skool party back to Eumundi, with original ska tunes coupled with some classic covers of The Specials, Madness, UB40, Bad Manners and more.

“We have a fantastic loyal following and there’s always a sensational energy at The Imperial,” he says.

“We’ll be bringing equal amounts of adrenalin and enthusiasm, so if you like to dance and love that infectious rocksteady beat, this will be a gig for you!”

Mick says it’s been a busy time of late for the ‘Rudies’, having just completed a sell-out six show national tour with Top 20 UK band Death of Guitar Pop.

 “We’ve also had some great time in the studio recording a new single ‘Feels Good’ along with a cover of ska classic ‘Artebella’ with Jamaican legend Stranger Cole, Mick says.

“Both tracks were mixed and mastered by Nicky Bomba – of Melbourne Ska Orchestra fame and prior to that John Butler Trio – and we’re looking forward to sharing them with the crowd in Eumundi.”

The ‘Rudies’ are 10-piece soundwave playing uplifting ska and reggae and drawing on musical influences that have shaped this genre from the Jamaican movement through to UK Two Tone.  

They demonstrate a unique vision with the exuberance and freewheeling colour of contemporary Ska and have crafted their sound with unexpected arrangements and seductive harmonies, powerful horns and foot-stomping drums.  

Doors open at 7.30pm 

TICKETS: $30 (+booking fee) through Oztix. 18+ event
