The Soul Playboys & Adam Hall: Saturday 18 February
The second concert is all about soul.
Adam Hall (leader of the Velvet Playboys) takes you for an evening of soul, velvet sounds and groovy times.
Think Stevie Wonder, Prince and Michael Jackson and then of the modern Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce. ‘Supersition’, ‘No Diggity’ and many more classic hits will have you dancing in the aisles.
Having headlined major festivals around the world this is an opportunity for Perth to hear this unique band.
Its a funky, late valentine celebration, especially with the imaginative set menu from Anthony Broad in Broad’s Restaurant.

Cuban Salsa, cha cha and samba music….I’m super excited!
Nueva Salsa is the hottest Cuban & New Yorkan salsa band this side of Latin America; their high-energy salsa, mambos, bombas and cha cha guarantee to get you moving to the infectious rhythms!
Upper Reach started our Twilight Concerts with Perth Salsa band, Sabroson. They split up in the noughties and since then I’ve been searching for a worthy successor….
Nueva Salsa, this nine piece Salsa band, with infectious percussion rhythms, sparkling horns, awesome vocals and bass grooves will transport you across the Andes to Latin America.
