It’s all about the suits at BAR36 this September as Brisbane-based octet the Steele Syndicate groove into town for amateurs weekend

Live at the Casino – BAR36 – Live Lounge


Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd September 2017 | 10pm Nightly

It’s all about the suits (… and the frocks) at The Reef Hotel Casino on the first weekend in September, fitting really, considering the weekend – Amateurs Weekend – is one of the best dressed on the Far North Queensland social calendar. Up-and-coming Brisbane-based octet The Steel Syndicate are heading North to join in the Amateurs celebrations for two special nights bringing a bit of groove and a lot of swagger.

Described as an ‘eclectic, genre-blending sound that reimagines elements of old school funk, reggae, ska and indie rock’, The Steele Syndicate were borne from the solo work of Steele McMahon. For their show at BAR36 they will be throwing out a mix of classic hits, cool covers and awesome originals! As their bio attests, these impressive eight musicians manage to blend ‘rich vocal harmonies with a roaring three-piece horn section to create music that is energized and emotional, for dancing breathlessly and for pondering deeply’.

Since the inception of The Steel Syndicate in 2015, they’ve performed at revered venues such as the Sydney Opera House, and won two band competitions, the Sigma Stockies Band Competition and the Brightside Homegrown Battle of the Bands. They released their debut offering Antipodes in 2016 to much acclaim. The EP, and its lead single – Where I Need To Be – have garnered a huge amount of national radio airplay and seen the band continue to tour heavily.

Get your groove (suit and frock) on this Amateurs weekend at BAR36 at The Reef Hotel Casino with The Steel Syndicate for two special nights only! Don’t miss this!

The Steele Syndicate perform at BAR36 at The Reef Hotel Casino on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd September 2017 from 10pm nightly. *** Live at the Casino shows in BAR36 are non-ticketed shows.
