Wild Marmalade at the Brewery
Byron Brewery | Friday | 7pm | Free
Wild Marmalade are the world’s original high-energy didgeridoo dance band. Fusing the ancient sounds of the didgeridoo with contemporary dance beats, their sound is a meeting of Si’s synth-style didgeridoo drones with the explosive beats of Matt Goodwin on the drum kit.
Drawing on rhythms from all over the world and inspired by indigenous sounds and the grooves of the present, Wild Marmalade’s high energy shows uplift audiences with their display of powerful, joyous and infectiously danceable music.
The original Wild Marmalade trio come to the Byron Brewery this Friday night. Warming up the crowd will be Rhythm Sunbird, followed by Wild Marmalade bringing two sets of infectious tribal dance music.
This outdoor dance event is being held under the gargantuan fig tree at Byron Bay Brewery.
Entry is free and it kicks off at 7pm.
