Ruby's Summer Socials
Zetland's outdoor music club features acts playing jazz, New Orleans funk, French swing, rockabilly and reggae.
A new outdoor music club is popping up in Zetland for the summer — thanks to the folks behind 107 Projects and the Sydney Improvised Music Association (SIMA). Head to the gorgeous Joynton Avenue Creative Centre for these fortnightly Friday gigs.
Ruby's Summer Socials will kick off on Friday, January 29 with The Sonic Drops, a local reggae-jazz trio that pumps out feel-good tunes. The band will perform jazz arrangements of reggae and Jamaican classics by the likes of Jackie Mittoo, The Skatalites, Sly & Robbie and, of course, the one-and-only Bob Marley. Apart from the tunes, a full bar will serve drinks and nibbles.
The program will continue for two months through until Friday, March 26. Upcoming acts span New Orleans funk, French swing, rockabilly and, of course, old school jazz.
For the full program and to book, head to the SIMA website. All tickets cost just $15, or a tenner for SIMA members and concession card holders.
