The August Bank Holiday was traditionally when the Mods would make their runs to Brighton and other seaside towns for a weekend of music, dancing and sharp dressing.

Relive the August Bank Holiday experience and dance the night away with music from:
Sound Affects The Live Jam Experience
That’s WHO
Special Brew playing Ska and Soul
DJ Nick Sheppard, playing Northern Soul tracks all night long

We wanted to re-create the Bank Holiday experience for lovers of Mod music and culture, so we’ve selected the best of the best to bring you an experience like you won’t experience anywhere else in Perth, or the world.

Bring your dancing shoes, because there’s going to be a Northern Soul dance off and expect the music to be loud and played with Fire and Skill, just how you like it.

Drinks at the bar will be cheaper than pub prices and there will be Blues and Purple Heart shooters to keep you dancing all night long. Hungry? No problem, you can get yourself a curry from the onsite food truck.

If you’re driving to the venue, there’s plenty of free parking. Enter Claremont Showgrounds via Gate One and turn left for the theatre. If you’re catching public transport, the nearest train station is Claremont on the Fremantle line and bus numbers 23, 24, 25, 27, 28, 98/99, 102, 103 and 107 all stop close by the venue.

Polish up our scooter and don your parka so you can join the scooter run. Prizes for the best scooter and sharpest dressed faces on the night.

Purple Hearts and Blues shooters at the bar to keep you dancing all night long.

Quadrophenia on continuous loop throughout the night on three massive screens.

This is the event of the year for all lovers of first and second generation Mod culture and music. Come and dance the night away this August Bank Holiday Saturday night.

DJ Nick Sheppard

DJ Nick Sheppard got his start in the music industry during the first wave of the punk movement with his band The Cortinas and later went on to join The Clash.

Nick has been a resident of Perth for some years now and has played in a slew of bands including The DomNicks with Dom Mariani – Official of The Stems. Nick really knows and loves Soul and Northern Soul and you can expect him to play classics as well as rare gems as he mixes it up all night long.

Special Brew

Special Brew are well known purveyors of Ska music and you can expect them to keep the dance floor filled throughout their lively set. As well as regular gigs at Mojo’s, The Newport, Deville’s Pad and Clancy’s Fish Pub, they’ve also played at various major and independent festivals such as Parklife, One Movement, Joondalup Festival, Melbourne’s Ska Nation and Northbridge Piazza’s New Year’s Eve 2011 event. Recently they supported UK ska luminaries Bad Manners, English Beat and The Selecter.

Sound Affects The Live Jam Experience

Sound Affects The Live Jam Experience have been formed especially for this event. The three members of the band are all respected musicians in their own right.
Raphael Whittingham is drummer with The Clouds, darlings of the 90s Australian Indi scene and still revered today.
Jamie Turner is a multi instrumentalist well known for his outings with MYTHS and The High Learys and, recently, as part of Davey Lane’s band for his Perth dates.
Andrew Bond is a singer and songwriter who also plays in Mad Ferret. When invited to be part of Sound Affects The Live Jam Experience, each of them agreed because they love The Jam and wanted to bring the raw energy and edge that was The Jam at the height of their powers.

That’s WHO

That’s WHO are a Perth supergroup comprised of Chris Gibbs on guitar, Craig Skelton on Bass and Synth, Bob Brisbane on drums and, channeling Roger Daltrey, Sal Abate. These boys are locked in tight and ready to explode. No instrument will be safe while they’re performing, so expect more than Sparks when you see and feel their set
