January 14th, 2023Beach party at the Palais with Rufino and the Coconuts, Mikelangelo
Rufino and the Coconuts and Mikelangelo come together to host the first ever Hepburn Beach Party at the Palais, Hepburn next Saturday night, January 21.
Grab your boogie board and your cozzies and surf down Main Street to the Palais for a night of tasty tunes and summer fun.
Mikelangelo and Rufino have played together for over 20 years in their legendary band Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen. While the Gentlemen are on their summer holidays, Mikey and Rufino are cooking up some sizzling sounds that will get you twisting on your beach towel. Two of the most charismatic frontmen you’re likely to see this side of the equator, this will be a night to delight.
For this doublebill, Rufino will take the stage with his seven piece band The Coconuts. Their self-styled Tropical Noir is part Afro-Latin groove, part Jamaican rocksteady, part Caribbean holiday sleaze-pop, part bone-shaking voodoo mayhem. There is no other band that gets a beach party swinging like Rufino and the Coconuts.
Mikelangelo will be joined by Rufino and members of the Coconuts to play a selection of oceanic classics from his repertoire with The Black Sea Gentlemen and surf’n’western instrumentals from his erstwhile band The Tin Star. Action is his middle name, and he’ll be proving that once again on the Palais stage.
