The Mothership has Spoken!

“The Don Johnson/Butlers are the definition of a good time. Funkier than a bushman’s hanky, more fair dinkum than a 20 minute drum break. If you ever wondered what Rick James would sound like covering your local RSL’s karaoke catalogue, get down (under) with the DJB’s today.”

In Your Mind – Funk Party – Sat 8th July


The Don Johnson/Butlers > DJ Declan James (pbs) > Miss & Mr Bogan Funk Train Awards 2018 > & guests

The world’s foremost purveyors of ‘bogan funk’ are about to launch their new International show to the world.

The Don Johnson/Butlers specialise in re-interpreting classic rock lyrics to iconic funk tracks from the 70’s & 80’s, in a live mash of the two disciplines.

In Your Mind is the new show featuring a fresh line-up, including former members of seminal indigenous band The Pad Boys, hot new tracks and dazzling special guests.

Forming in mid-2014, The DJB’s have played events such as Brisbane Fringe Festival, Wallaby Creek Festival, Millaa Milla Bogan Bash and the Deadroots Festival.

In Your Mind will be a strictly funk event, and punters are encouraged to dress funky to be in the running for Mr & Miss Bogan Funk 2018.

Joining the band will be one of Melbourne’s hottest funk DJ’s Declan James, from PBS FM. His how ‘The Mothership’, is infamous for classic, deep funk and groove from the 70’s till now.

The Miss & Mr Bogan Funk Awards are being kindly sponsored by #BigCatGreenIsland and #CairnsSunsetCruises. Dress to impress and win a tour!

The Don Johnson/Butlers present a wack show of lush funky grooves, hands-in-the-air rock lyrics, glitzy sequins, classic stubby shorts and more chutzpah than Lemmy at an 80’s block party.
