The Milford Street Shakers will explode at the new Freo.Social venue on the site of the historic Artillery Drill Hall.


It's party time at Freo.Social when an expanded 11-piece Milford Street Shakers performs its high powered Soul Slap! show at Freo.Social on September 21.

The band will be bringing back the Motown sounds of the Swinging Sixties performing songs including Dancing In The Street, Stop! In The Name of Love, I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch), and How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You.

Bandleader Dom D'Leno says its music that captures the mood of the era as the band journeys across the iconic 60s musical landscape.

It is music to dance to with the moves of Do the Watusi, The Mashed Potato and The Twist all emanating from the era.

D'Leno promises a super soul dance party of epic proportions.

The Milford Street Shakers have an infectious energy, which has earned them a following across Western Australia with performances ranging from the Leeuwin Estate concerts to Subiaco's Regal Theatre, and up to the Nameless Festival at Tom Price in the Pilbara.

The show at the new Freo.Social venue on the site of the historic Artillery Drill Hall offers a perfect setting for a re-interpretation of soul music from the masters who created it 50 years ago.

There are tickets for dinner and the show or for general admittance, but seating is limited to 160 and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Some cabaret seating is available along with limited perimeter seating around the venue, but again it will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

The band features Lee Morunga on lead vocals, who toured Australia and Europe for 10 years with Disney's The Lion King and musicians 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.

The upbeat music of performers like Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Etta James and James Brown provides a tribute to the soul music of the era.
