Reservoir Stomp is a function that will keep you entertained
On Sunday 17th November, Reservoir Stomp returns to the Preston-Reservoir Bowls Club, 75 Leamington Street, Reservoir. This will be the fourth year running with a smashing line-up featuring the very best local talent performing across two glorious stages.
There are so many people who are going to perform and some of them include:
REMI and musical collaborator Sensible J are now one of Australia's favourite hip-hop acts. In 2017, REMI was nominated for the fantastic US BET Awards, and they also returned to the UK after being invited by Kate Tempest to perform at The Brighton Festival. At this venue, they played to a sold-out Brighton Dome. REMI also played with emcee Sampa The Great.
They are constantly performing sold-out headline tours across Europe and Australia and REMI have also shared the stage with Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, Vic Mensa, De La Soul, Joey Bada$$, Blackalicious, and Hiatus Kaiyote.
* TEK TEK ENSEMBLE TEK TEK performs virtuoso and original music which has been inspired by tropical serenades, late night Balkan weddings, and shamanistic desert rituals.
There are three guys and three girls who make up this band with trombone, trumpet, violin, accordion, drums, bass, electric guitar and deep, delightful singing on top of all that! TEK TEK Ensemble is from Melbourne but have performed many times across Australia, once in South East Asia, and twice across Europe.
* FREYA JOSEPHINE HOLLICK After releasing her second full-length album in August of 2018, Australian singer-songwriter, Freya Josephine Hollick obtained a magnificent grant from Creative Victoria. This would enable her to go to the US to make an album with Lucinda Williams. Lucinda is known through her band Buick 6 and guitarist Greg Leisz.
This year, Hollick toured as a solo tour with CW Stoneking and opened for Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats on the two sold-out nights at The Croxton in April, among festival appearances across the country.
The Bongo Brothers are a theatrical music comic act who do performances for family audiences. Through musical theatre and soft storytelling, you will be able to join Mongo the musical maestro, his hilarious baby brother Bongo and the complete dill Drongo!
They have played more than a thousand shows with about 150,000 children, The Bongos' have made themselves a real name for playing Fun4Kids Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Chapel Off Chapel and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
* VARIETYVILLE Varietyville is one of Australia's funniest purveyors of circus, magic and physical comedy. They are always doing something that is really funny and they were living and performing shows in Reservoir way before it was cool to actually do that.
They have done their shows in over 30 countries at Theatres on the street at the Sydney Opera House and now they are very getting very excited to be performing at Reservoir Stomp. They will be doing their roving performances throughout the day.
