In 1978, Adelaide band Rum Jungle, led by charismatic, wild singer/guitarist Phil Colson, travelled to Bangkok on a mysterious journey. The trip destroyed the band. 36 years later the band re-grouped at Fringe 2015 in front of 400 fans to recreate the sound that kept the Lord Melbourne Hotel jumping for an era and shocked sedate Thai audiences. In 2018 Rum Jungle have been invited to perform once again at the German Club for the Adelaide Fringe, and give us a taste of their signature sound -- blues, R&B, funk and debauchery. The band lay it on thick with nostalgia and reunite to play the music they love, 40 years after that mysterious Thailand gig... who knows where the night will lead?

Venue

The GC at The German Club

The GC is a brilliant multi-space performance hub situated in a central city location within the versatile facilities of the German Club. It offers five performance rooms over 4 floors, with audience capacities from 50 through to 450, plus in-house bars and bistro, air-conditioned comfort and loads of atmosphere. The GC provides high production values and comfort for artists and audiences. The main performance space, the 450-seat Showroom One, is one of Adelaide's best multi-purpose rooms: a fully air-conditioned auditorium with proscenium arch stage, high ceiling, lift and stair access, and excellent acoustics with minimal sound transfer, equipped with high-end front of house and stage sound. Other rooms - from 60 through to 120 seats - provide remarkable performance spaces with quirky ambience particularly suited to stand-up, small bands and two/three-handed theatre. Professional front-of-house and tech staff are provided and generous bump-in and rehearsal conditions apply.
