Event: Jamaica Jump Up – Saturday February 25

PBS 106.7FM’s ska, rocksteady and early reggae party Jamaica Jump-Up is back after a summer break with a massive line-up for a very special, one-off fundraiser for the Alpha Boys School in Kingston, Jamaica.

Featuring live performances from none other than the Melbourne Ska Orchestra, The Ska Vendors and The Moonhops! Yes, THREE huge live sets from some of Melbourne’s most celebrated ska/rocksteady outfits.

Plus, selections by our own Mohair Slim (Blue Juice, PBS 106.7FM), Jesse I (Babylon Burning, PBS 106.7FM)Rick Howe (Riddim Yard, PBS 106.7FM)with guest selectors Systa BB (The Good, The Dub, The Global, 3RRR 102.7FM) and Fabulous Fez.

Stick Mareebo and Queen Jigzie will be joining forces to bring all the good vibes and take us through proceedings as MCs for the evening.

The Alpha Boys School has been providing schooling and vocational skills to underprivileged and troubled youth in Kingston for over a 130 years.  Alpha is best known for having been the training ground for many important musicians and singers of ska, rocksteady, reggae, dancehall and jazz including Don Drummond, Dizzy Moore, Owen Gray, Johnny Osbourne, Desmond Dekker, Rico Rodriguez, Yellowman, Horsemouth Wallace, Eddie “Tan Tan” Thornton and dozens more.

As this an event very close to the hearts of musicians in the extended Jamaica Jump-Up family, ALL PROFITS from ticket sales will be donated to the school – plus there will be rare merch and vinyl available for purchase at an auction on the night.

As usual, the party will take place at our home turf The Gasometer Hotel, 9pm-3am.

For this very special event, ticket prices will be $20 for PBS members and $25 future members. Door sales only – get down early to avoid missing out!

2017 Harmony Cup – Sunday April 2

Sunday April 2, 2017

Royal Park North, Park St, Parkville

FREE EVENT

The AFL International Harmony Cup features teams drawn from Melbourne’s many communities. The aim of the event is twofold:

1. to celebrate Melbourne’s ethnic diversity and harmony, and

2. use the power of sport to break down cultural and ethnic barriers. We may come from many different backgrounds but we are all Australians.

The Harmony Cup is an official Harmony Day (Australian Government) event.

In 2017 the Harmony Cup will be held on Sunday 2 April at Royal Park North, Park Street, Parkville (near the zoo). Next year will be the 10th edition of the event. Entry is free and it’s a great day out for the whole family, with lots of footy, food and entertainment.

AFL International is hoping to have over 50 countries represented on the day, with people from each community wearing their footy jumper. It will be a United Nations of footy and will look amazing! They have created these jumpers for Caribbean countries (so far!):

Jumpers are $70 each and you can choose your size and what number you would like on the back. Jumpers can be purchased here.

Let’s set a new World Record for the most number of individual national footy jumpers, so order your jumper and join us at the 2017 Harmony Cup in Melbourne!
