The Cabana Tropicana solar sustainable disco shack is growing in 2014

Sunny Bins has set up a solar sound system for the second year running at the Rocks on Australia/Invasion/Survival day 2014, it was good to present a colourful tropical multi cultural music zone at the Rocks event that was fun and mostly devoid of flag cape wearing oi oi oi nonsense.

The stands help relay the Sunny Bin solar sound further, in this configeration the Sunny Bins are like a regular stereo sound system but 12v

The new format for this solar disco is two sunny bins on stands and elevated top boxes all 12vDC and fed by the bins solar panel lids. The sound was great and lasted the distance ‘off the grid’.

We Dj’ed a selection of global beats and traditional sounds, tropical, latin cumbia, reggae and gypsy grooves and for 6 hours fishing in a lot of interest including some great swing dancers, Leo Sayer and queues of people taking photo’s posing in the shack. The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority‘s playground of astro turf, kids blow up animals, chairs and cushioned filled inflatable pools was a great idea really complementing the Cabana Tropicana. Stay tuned for recordings of the days D.j sets on my sound cloud.

This year at the Rocks they set up an astro turf playground on the street that wasa perfect setting for the Cabana Tropicana

As we were dj’ing a selection of world sounds swing dancers came and did their thing and we even fished in Leo Sayer
