Entry is with ticket to see Djuki Mala

The Mangrove Jack Band  formed after a jam night between local Fingal musicians, and in a few short years they have gone on to be the musical core of The Spirit of Churaki, the major local performance work during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

The songs from The Spirit of Churaki ride the perfect wave between rocking surf tunes, laid back oceanic beats, beautiful ballads and the ancient sounds of Aboriginal language honouring the rich lineage of saltwater people, a spirit of generosity and a deep connection to country and cultural obligation. Hear The Jacks as they’re affectionately known, perform these and other tunes that bridge across rock, roots, reggae and funk.
