The Momentum sessions were established in April 2015 at the Evelyn Hotel and are now a Melbourne staple for local Hip-Hop, Funk, Soul and Jazz music; building capacity for young emerging artists, sparking connections between local musicians and creating a strong platform for musicians to present their work to a larger audience.
Initially created for the CoreTet, the Foreign Brothers house band, our Momentum events expanded in early 2017 thanks to a co-presenting partnership with PBS 106.7FM and local support from Jaben Audio and Red Bull Australia. Once every two Sundays (we called these nights our Church sessions), Momentum is now presented every last Saturday of the month, taking over the full Evelyn venue, with the CoreTet jamming in the Public bar, bands in the band room, PBS DJs, projections and all that fitting within a monthly theme (Dancehall, Flight to Africa, Space is the Place, R&B etc).
At the centre of the Foreign Brothers events portfolio, Momentum is an ever expanding brand of events whose founding principles are collaborations, community involvement, diversity, inclusiveness and of course...QUALITY GROOVES!
