Sydney, NSW – 20/06/14 – Dereb the Ambassador live at THE BASEMENT

Who
Dereb the Ambassador live at THE BASEMENT
When
Friday, June 20, 2014
7:30pm - All Ages Buy Tickets
Where
7 Macquarie Place
Sydney, NSW, Australia 2000

When The Basement first opened its doors, it was in a single level basement that was to become an alternative to the, at the time, less than avant garde scene of pub rock and cover bands playing the registered clubs.
The opinion of the then-owners was that if people were buying records by a more catholic range of musicians then there was more than a good chance they’d want to see them live.
And so, on May 10, 1972 The Basement began what has become a benchmark club for contemporary music.
With its beginnings as primarily a jazz venue it was also firmly in place that a broad spectrum and mix of styles was what Sydney audiences would be open to – if only they had the chance.
Not only did they take up the chance – they demanded more – and more people demanded entrance to the club.
Originally with a capacity for 120 seated and 150 standing, 1977 saw the expansion of The Basement to a 2-level space, providing crucial extra seating and bar room.
From Galapagos Duck, Johnny Griffin, Vince Jones and Dizzy Gillespie the Basement was now able to accommodate the likes of Art Pepper, Herbie Hancock, Freddie Hubbard and Georgie Fame.
But bad news struck in 1988 when developers decided to redevelop the site and knock the building down. Good news, however, was just down the street.
In 1992, only a few doors away from the original spot, The Basement reopened but with greater space than before, better facilities and this time as a venue custom built for its purpose.
The music continues and the only things that change at The Basement, are the great names who appear on stage.
For those who love good music but can’t make it to the club itself, ABC TV offers up a series of select shows in ‘Live at The Basement’. For more details, check your local program guide.
The Green Room
Midday – late Mon – Fri
7pm – late Weekends
Definitely, the total kick back bar of The Basement to have a beer, shoot some pool or meet your mates. The Green Room and side bar just off the main entrance is as much like stepping into one of those great American bars you see on the screen as you’ll find anywhere.
All of our bars are stocked with an enormous selection of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks, with The Green Room being the popular place to be during Happy Hour (4.30-6.30pm Mon – Fri).
Like the rest of the club, The Green Room’s walls are lined with a whole lot of Basement history. Check out all the flyers, photos and posters from past shows, rack ‘em up and relax in The Green Room.
Functions
Jazz up your next function at the world famous Basement.
Whether it’s corporate or a birthday bash, we’re able and happy to accommodate your party be it for 20, 40 or 400 folk.
From intimate cocktail parties to larger corporate functions – in our exclusive Blue Note bar or The Green Room or to full restaurant service in the main show room – we’ll tailor our service to your needs.
We specialise in listening and talking to you about the desired outcome of your function and individually create the right package for your event. Whether it’s show bizz glitz with lobster and champagne you’re after or an easy going pies, prawns, & beer party you want – and everything in between – we want to make your event a success just as much as you.
The Basement also understands that sometimes you need to ‘pull it together’ without a long lead time. Of course, the more time for planning a party the better, but after 30 years in the business, where and when possible, we have the experience to turn it around almost on the spot for you.
So whether your function’s next week, next month or next year let us know how we can be a part of your party by contacting the club direct by phoning 02-92512797 or email base29@bigpond.net.au or by fax on 02-9252 3007.
