Funkin' The Bay 2017

FunkinTheBay-7-A5-L-min.jpg

Monday 27 February 2017

We’re back with the most ridiculous funk boat party in the world. After 7 years of bringing you the best funk, soul, disco and hip hop DJs and live performers, we’re setting sail for another killer ‘Funkin’ the Bay’ party.

This year we’re getting ridiculous in so many ways… An all-girl DJ line-up in the main room, unheard of! Eight DJs dropping funk on a boat, no way! After party until 7am, Get outta town!

Who is playing you ask? Well on the top deck, only the finest ladies this town has to offer are spinning the hottest sounds; DJ Ayna, Lady Langers, DJ Lyndelle (Afterglow, PBS) and Miss Gabrielle vs Wax Fox (Vinyl Vixens) are on deck to play a super fun back-to-back set.

The boys will be rocking the party downstairs and will play second fiddle to the ladies for once! That never stopped them bringing the heat though. You can catch Tom Showtime (100% Phat / Easy now Recordings) spinning and playing live sax, DJ Peril from the legendary 1200 Techniques and the funkiest ‘fro in town is back to throw down, Mr. Chris Gill.

As usual, we have a completely optional theme. This year it’s ‘You’re so ridiculous’, which means you can wear anything as long as it’s outrageous, wild, absolutely silly or downright ridiculous… Just no ‘blackface’ or anything offensive. Gimp suits are more than OK.

The best part about all of this? It’s for Charity. Act, Change, Educate and HFCA donate all profits from this party to the Happy School Project and to the Cambodian Homeless World Cup football program. A good time for a funkin’ good cause… Oh Yeah!
