Prepare your dancing shoes because a music extravaganza is coming to Oakleigh.

Live at Warrawee – Soul Explosion will take place on March 18 and incorporate live music acts and a selection of food trucks.

The event will offer a packed program featuring local music stars including The Bamboos, The Meltdown, Hyjinx, and headline act Vika and Linda.

Led by Tracey Miller, a Mass Community Choir will take to the stage, supported by the Peter Vadiveloo drummers and Oakleigh Brass, in a night that promises great musical diversity.

Blues, soul, gospel, jazz, funk and country, are just some of the music genres that can be enjoyed the festival.

In addition to offering a music experience, the event will also offer a visual experience, as Warrawee Park will light up with parkland and animal light installations.

Saxophonist for The Meltdown, Lachlan McLean, said the event was important for the community of Oakleigh.

“It’s an important service to bring bands and other cultural events to the outer suburbs, and create a community celebration with some of Melbourne’s finest musicians and bands,” he said.

“Having most of our performances in the CBD, it’s a great opportunity for us to reach a new audience.”

The fun starts at 4pm and promises to be a feast for the ears, eyes and tastebuds.
