Fusion, Space Funk, and the Minneapolis Sound hit Stonnington for one huge party.

Prepare to be awe-struck with keytar virtuosity, mammoth bass grooves and pulsating horn lines by three huge bands..

In the vein of Prince, Morris Day and the Time, Madhouse, and Sheila E, Lake Minnetonka, the jazz-fusion juggernaut are forging a Melbourne take on the Minneapolis Sound. Having collaborated with artists such as Larry Graham and Graham Central Station, Eric Leeds (fDeluxe, D’Angelo) and Dr Fink (Prince and the Revolution), their 80’s inspired synth funk will leave you on a Purple high.

The deep funk fusion of Pickpocket stimulates your brain and activates your feet. The eight-piece band is Melbourne’s newest fusion outfit that celebrates deep groove and improvisation. This funk is for everyone.

The rambunctiously energetic, indomitably entertaining and deliberately preposterous Arthur Penn and The Funky Ten transport you somewhere between a smoky jazz lounge bar and a funky roller disco nightclub.
