After a hugely successful fundraising night at The Corner Hotel last year, The Crusaders have put together another afternoon of mod-esque music to raise funds for Children First Foundation. Joining The Crusaders will be Melbourne’s exponents of all things Jamaican, The Ska Vendors and just to make things a little more special, The Ska Vendors have recruited the sweet honey vocals of Sydney’s Pat Powell. Pat has already wowed Melbourne crowds earlier this year with his silky vocals. Also making their debut will be Melbourne’s newest ska combo, Shanty Town playing original Jamaican grooves. To keep things even, DJs Snowy and DJs The Pacemakers will be spinning original Stax, Tamla and Northern with plenty of original R&B thrown in too. Ska, rocksteady, reggae, soul, fundraising… get on the dance floor!
