As part of Eumundi's celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast, The Imperial Hotel and Eumundi Brewery are celebrating on Saturday 30 September with free brewery talks and behind-the-scenes with the brewing team; family fun activities; and a live music program that culminates with Melbourne's disco/pop dynamos VAUDEVILLE SMASH playing in The Brewery at 7pm.
Manager Paul Thomas said the hotel and brewery celebrations will be rolling all afternoon and into the evening.
“The brewery talks will take place throughout the afternoon and will be hosted by our brewing team and tour guides,” Paul said.
“It will be a great chance to glean some insight into how the beer is made, as well as learn some history about beer making in Eumundi, and the development of the new brewery.
‘It will also be the perfect time for people to try our new Eumundi Brewery Lager and Eumundi Brewery Pale Ale,” he said.
“As our gift to the community to say thank you for supporting the new Eumundi Brewery, we’re giving away up to 300 free tickets to see disco/pop dynamos VAUDEVILLE SMASH, who will be playing in The Brewery at 7pm that night,” he said. “Simply buy a Eumundi Brewery beer on the day to receive a free ticket to this 18+ gig. And I’d get in quick as they will disappear fast!”
Guests will enjoy live music all afternoon, kicking off with The Brown Trouts in The Imperial Beer Garden from 12noon, followed by live performances on the street including Eumundi School of Rock, Uncle Bob’s Jug Band and Mufassa, capped off with the Vaudeville Smash gig in The Brewery from 7pm.
More about Vaudeville Smash
An explosion of funk, flute, sax, synth and groove, VAUDEVILLE SMASH pack the dance floor with their high energy good time sets.
Made up of three brothers and two mates, they have a sound that’s all their own – a mind-blowingly refreshing sonic feast that fuses late 70s and early 80s quasi-disco dance grooves.
In case you’re wondering, their name was inspired by an Italian children’s karaoke machine that was around in the late ’80s!
VAUDEVILLE SMASH have certainly carved their own niche, building a formidable following in their hometown of Melbourne and around the world. Their international adventures have seen them sign with Japan's P-Vine records, after returning to Tokyo and the Sapporo City Jazz Festival in 2015 for the third consecutive year, where they also filmed the video for their single Richter Scale.
Other notable mentions include playing South by South West in Austin Texas twice (having been invited back), shows in New York, Singapore, Toronto for Canadian Music Week, main stage at St Kilda Festival, the Australian Open Tennis, and six unforgettable shows at Woodford Folk Festival 2015/16.
Another exciting chapter in the eclectic VAUDEVILLE SMASH story was the release of their worldwide smash Zinedine Zidane. Featuring the voice of Australian soccer Les Murray, the single quickly became a viral hit, garnering over five and a half million youtube views, and featured in some of the biggest publications on the planet, including Billboard, ESPN, Eurosport and the BBC.
VAUDEVILLE SMASH released their latest album The Gift last year. It’s a synth heavy, sax laden, bass induced journey. A contemporary reworking of the early 80s funk/boogie scene, the album evokes visions of Cameo, Midnight Star and the Gap Band.
This is a gig not to miss. Bring your dancing shoes!
