Grab your boogie board and your cozzies and surf down Sydney road to the Brunswick Ballroom for a night of tasty tunes and summer fun.

Mikelangelo and Rufino have played together for over 20 years in their legendary band Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen. While the Gentlemen are on their summer holidays, Mikey and Rufino are cooking up some sizzling sounds that will get you twisting on your beach towel. Two of the most charismatic frontmen you’re likely to see this side of the equator, this will be a night to delight.

For this doublebill, Rufino will take the stage with his seven piece band The Coconuts. Their self-styled Tropical Noir is part Afro-Latin groove, part Jamaican rocksteady, part Caribbean holiday sleaze-pop, part bone-shaking voodoo mayhem. There is no other band that gets a beach party swinging like Rufino and the Coconuts.

Mikelangelo will be joined by Rufino and members of the Coconuts to play a selection of oceanic classics from his repertoire with The Black Sea Gentlemen and surf’n’western instrumentals from his erstwhile band The Tin Star. Action is his middle name, and he’ll be proving that once again on the hallowed stage of the Brunswick Ballroom.

Dress code: City Beach
