Join The Milford Street Shakers for the rockingest Christmas party ever.


The Milford Street Shakers seasonal Soul show has become an annual celebration with the band performing its brand of Christmas music at the Sewing Room for the third year in a row.

On Saturday, December 21, the 11-piece band will perform its pumping versions of Christmas songs and carols along with a bunch of classics from the Motown era.

Along with a very different take on Christmas classics like I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, White Christmas and even some traditional Christmas carols will be soul renditions of songs including Stop! In The Name Of Love, Land of 1000 Dances and Uptight (Everything's Alright).

The Milford Street Shakers brand of high impact, high energy, will provide an ideal incentive to get up and dance.

Band leader Dom D'Leno says last year's Christmas bash was a sell-out and advises fans to book early.


The party kicks off at 6pm at the Sewing Room, 317 Murray St (basement), Wolf Lane, Perth with tickets available from https://moshtix.com.au/v2/event/the-milford-st-shakers-christmas-party-extravaganza/117951

The Milford Street Shakers features Lee Morunga on lead vocals; James Vinciullo on bass, Dominic D'Leno on drums, Imogen Thomson on percussion, Andy Jarvis on guitar, Austin Salisbury on keys, Robert Bresland on trumpet, Glyn MacDonald on trombone, Mark Sprogowski on baritone sax and backing vocalists Taonga Thomson-Lawrence and Roera Mako.

Bandleader Dom D'Leno is expecting the show to be a sell-out and urged fans of the band wanting to attend to get their tickets online early.

The Shakers' fantastic horn section includes Mark Sprogowski on baritone sax.


He says there is something irresistible about a high-powered horn section that lends itself wonderfully to Christmas tunes creating a sound unlike anything many had heard before.

The up-beat Milford Street Shakers versions with a full-blown horn section give even traditional Christmas carols a real punch.

The Sewing Room in the basement of 317 Murray Street was built in 1910 and originally housed a sewing room for one of Perth's leading fashion houses.

It was refurbished and opened as a nightclub just over two years ago and opens every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.

The live music venue was purpose-built and has a state of the art sound system, top-end mixing and lighting equipment and flexible staging.

The powerful sounds of The Milford Street Shakers have become a firm favourite with Australian audiences of all ages who love to get up and dance to the Motown and Soul music of the 1960s.
