Stranger Cole’s Melbourne gig is a one-off for our fair city – and a spectacular gathering of every significant ska/reggae/rocksteady band of note in the history of this sweetass metropolis.

Please don your finery and raise your glass.

Dance like nobody’s bidness.

Bruthas and Systas

Come and witness:


Saturday 5 March 2010 – Corner Hotel, Richmond – from 7pm

Stranger Cole (Jamaica)
The Moonhops
The Ska Vendors
Judge Pino & The Ruling Motions
Johnny Longshot
DJ Moss Raxlen (Canada)
DJ Mohair Slim (PBS FM)
DJ Jesse I (PBS FM)

PLUS the excellent Nicky Bomba with ‘Bustamento!’

After a show-stealing cameo in support of Dawn Penn last year, Stranger Cole returns to Australia with his
own show of an hour and a half of his foundation hits backed by the Moonhops (Melbourne’s rocksteady
kings reunited for one night only).

In honour of the Jamaican recording superstar, five of Australia’s top ska, rocksteady and reggae
aggregations plus DJs will for one gigantic summit of swinging off-beat and hypnotic rocksteady grooves.

Kicking off at 7pm, THE MELBOURNE ROCKSTEADY SKA AND REGGAE REVUE will be a feast of the finest
Jamaican music played by famed local exponents including The Ska Vendors, Judge Pino & The Ruling
Motions, Johnny Longshot and Skazz. Between the bands, PBS DJs Mohair Slim and Jesse I will maintain
the vibe with vintage vinyl sounds. After the bands, Canadian DJ, producer and historian Mossman will
transform the Corner Hotel into a Kingston dancehall with a killer two hour set of Jamaican oldies.

Dress code: “Sharp as a ratchet knife”.
