‘Rufino and the Coconuts – Voodoo Pop… just the right elements to make you feel as if you were shipwrecked on a lush tropical island’ – WeekendNotes
The marooned magical misfits of tropical goodtime, boneshaking, voodoo groove – Rufino and the Coconuts – are yearning to make musical love to your ears as the world’s foremost proponents of Voodoo rocksteady jungle-disco exotica-cabaret – veer off their Aussie tour to hit the Coast for one afternoon only when Rufino, crooner and violinist, from acclaimed European Kabaret ensemble Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen, presents his acclaimed show of ‘tropical noir’ with a full 8-piece band to stir the bones and bring the hot tropics to Naughty Noodle Fun Haus.
The band of castaways, troubled geniuses and misfits in the rhythm-rich jungles, who form Rufino and The Coconuts recall Serge Gainsbourg’s tropical recordings, Grace Jones’ theatrical Caribbean groove and the primal stomp of The Birthday Party. It’s the type of cultural melting pot beloved by cannibals as a morning soup.
Its time for connection, getting together, live music, dancing, and everything quirky and offbeat that sets you free. With that in mind there is of course
DRESS CODE: Loud tropical prints & florals, Love Boat Party realness, Tiki tour, P&OHH so good!
So, get the sand off the tropical attire, shake up the cocktails and take in the exotic sights of sheer joy and terror with Rufino and the Coconuts. Now is the time to smile, move and get silly about tropical Kabaret with heart, soul, humour, and mind-bending artistic vision so book a table now and see you and come prepared to dance!
