On the 27th and 28th, July 2019 the Pudenski Brothers played at Southbourne Revival, a Free vintage music event which was organised within 12 weeks following the cancellation of 2019's Shake and Stir. The revival was a free family event with a vintage vibe, live music, bars, food and a range of traders sponsored by The Southbourne on Sea Business Association and Bournemouth Coastal Bid.
The Southbourne-on-sea revival run in the summer of 2019 was a great example of celebrating the summer in traditional SOBO Style, It was a free family event which involved getting all shook up to Cool Music and Vintage Vibes. The Revival was sponsored by the local trader and run by the local community. Supplying the refreshments on the day an array of awarding winning local businesses are on the line up;
- Conker Gin
- The Way Outback Brewing Company
- The Larderhouse
- Makla Bistro
- Velo Domestique
- Sid Slaps
- Panzerotti Hut
- Holy Cow
- Mighty Weiners
- Smoked Mighty Bites
Pudenski Bros. Play Super Sunday
BCP events team were hugely supportive of the revival in the garden part of Southbourne bringing the fabulous Southbourne community together.
The event was a fantastic community lead project with the organisers taking to social media channels as well as word of mouth to bring together volunteers from throughout Southbourne to work together to put on the event. It took a lot of special people to put on the event with community bunting, Southbourne's own Banksy from Lucan Art, dedicated knitters from weekly knitting meetings, retro rollers from Baker Street, it wouldn't be a Southbourne event without a raffle from Heather and Dorset Devils who tidied up the patch and left it cleaner than when the event started.
Mums, Dads, Grannies and Kids were walking through the park enjoying themselves smiling. Visitors soaked up the sunshine and enjoyed upbeat, rock ‘n’ roll music on Saturday. There was a more laid-back jazz and acoustic line-up on Sunday but organisers still managed to fit in jitterbug jive dance classes. Residents Gordon Fong and Tony Hughes were the main organisers and Gordon said he is thrilled with the way the event went.
Craig and Martin played two acoustic sets on Super Sunday in the beautiful Fishermans Walk with people taking shade under the trees in beautiful sunshine, Larderhouse served and hosted a ticket only Sunday Roast in the park for those who planned ahead.
It was a great couple of days and we really liked the recognition of Southbourne legend Disco Dave on the posters. Dave took his role very seriously and was dancing both days to the jitterbugs playing through the park.
