About this event

Amongst the sequins, feathers, champagne and stars, was the rise of jazz, endless nights of dance, and people breathing dreams like air. Party Like It's Prohibition with Perth's Funked Up Brass Band as they roar into the music of the 1920s. As F. Scott Fitzgerald once wrote, "Can't repeat the past? Why of course you can!" Let us blow you back in time with a cacophony of sound from an eleven-piece brass band, fronted by three of Perth's finest vocalists, adding their own modern twist. A little party never killed nobody, so come and dance until you drop to the music of the greats, from Ellington to Beyonce and those in-between. 'We like large parties, they're intimate, at small parties, there isn't any privacy,' so bring those that you know and those that you don't, for a night to remember.
