Waxy’s Irish Pub in Surfers Paradise is the new home to Soul Sessions Entertainment’s series of mobile music events.
Recently packing out the Sunhouse in Coolangatta (pictured), organisers are now showcasing upbeat original music in the centre of Surfers.
The first event, to be held Friday 8 May will be focused on latin and reggae grooves with The High Grade, Magdalena Groove, DJ Doring and Skylark providing the tunes. The event will also raise funds for the Free West Papua movement. Organiser Benji Guerrero says “I was tired of seeing establishments once known for their thriving original live music scene fall prey to reliance on poker machines, solo artists or become saturated with the same style cover bands or DJ’s.”
And hence his approach to showcasing talented local artists.
“I personally really enjoy discovering new music and watching talented artists who’ve put their hearts and souls into creating their music perform live. It’s authentic. The other aspects we strongly focus on are keeping a positive community, lively energy and making sure that our acts bring a solid entertainment factor that make our ticket prices worth the money,” Benji said.
