When: Thursday June 20, 2002

THE next few months will prove to be some of the biggest for the Funky Do-Da's. The popular Novocastrian four-piece is gearing up for the release of a new album and a tour of the UK.

But before jetting off, the band will launch its third album at The Dungeon tomorrow from 7.30pm.

Titled Tridu, it follows up the band's previous efforts Do One and Dutu. It features two original tunes titled Beaux Jungle and Eight Counts For Jimmy. It also contains eight reworkings of classic tracks and the band agrees that the album is a conscious move away from the jazz label previously pinned to them.

Admission to the launch is free upon purchase of the album for $20 or $10 for entry to the show only.

The show will also double as a fundraiser to help the band raise enough money to embark on its first tour of the UK in July.

In the UK, the band will perform at the Marlborough and Birmingham International Jazz Festivals. Upon returning to Australia, the band is scheduled to perform at the 10th annual Jazz In The Vines in October.

The album Tridu is also available via e-mail at dodas@idl.net.au or at the band's web site www.funkydodas.com.

Also check out the Funky Do-Da's when they perform at Halekulani Bowling Club on June 30 and at Belmont 16ft Sailing Club on July 5.

TE has four copies of the album to giveaway.
