The doors swing open at the new location for Cherry (68 Little Collins Street) on Thursday December 12th. To help see the move of our classic Soul night out of the basement and into an attic, we’re welcoming Soulsham to the Cherry stage!
This special collective made up of some of our towns finest players (members of The Bamboos, Saskwatch, GL and Jacky Winter and more!) are the perfect act to bring in the next chapter for Cherry. For almost twenty years it was a guarantee that with a late night visit to our old digs (we’re only a 400 metre walk from our beloved AC/DC Lane by the way) you’d be sure to find joyous conversation amongst Melbourne musicians over the occasional spilt drink. A tradition that’s bound to continue… Such late night creatures having the bright idea to form a group is how ‘Soulsham’ came into being. A band comprising members of The Bamboos, Saskwatch, GL and Jacky Winter (amongst others) with the sole purpose of playing some beloved tunes on a Thursday night, maybe once (very occasionally twice) a year.
