Moovers say it's time to party
The Lismore group who reached number two on Triple J's Unearthed dance chart last year with their song Icecream Truck are now holding a dance party. Moovers, Soothers and Groovers are a group of intellectually disabled people who made their hit song as part of the Community Participation Project (CPP) at Multitask. The song, along with other tracks from participants in the program, then appeared on a compilation CD called Tralala Blip.
This year the group have decided they want to hold an all-ages, drug and alcohol-free dance party that will feature DJs Cenobite and Foote, as well as brackets from the CPP crew and music from their CD.
Facilitator and producer Randolf Reimann said they had recently been asked to remix a track from a UK punk band called Heavy Load.
The remix will be used as part of a campaign in the UK called “Stay Up Late” which aims to help people with disabilities be supported to go out and socialise at night.
Support worker Amanda Weller said many of the people in the program have never been out to a nightclub and were really looking forward to the experience.
The Moovers, Soothers and Groovers dance party will be on at SCU's Zest function room on Saturday, October 24. It's free and they'd love to see you there for a dance.
