When someone tells you about an upcoming musical event for deaf people, you can do one of two things: make the obvious joke about how Jet must be touring again soon, or pay attention and get behind a rather wonderful idea. Sencity is a multi-sensory, multi-faceted, special and unique music event for the deaf, hard of hearing and hearing. The success of the concept has catapulted Sencity into fame within the deaf community in Europe and Africa and, excitingly, is now heading to Australia.

Going out to music events is, for deaf people, often not really an option and so they end up staying within the deaf community, meaning that opportunities to interact with others are pretty limited. And so, to combat this, Sencity was born. At Sencity's Sydney event - on Friday August 27 at Home nightclub, deaf people will be able to feel the passion, emotion and atmosphere of going out to a music event like they never have before. The event is sure to bring together deaf and hearing people and create more networks for young deaf people.

Through the use of special techniques such as vibrating dance floor, deaf people will be able to feel the music the way others hear it. Lyrics are interpreted into sign language by Sign-Singer, while Visual-Jockeys and Food Jockeys will also provide positive sense impressions. There are even Aroma-Jockeys.

A while ago, the good people at Sencity contacted BobbySix.com for suggestions as to which local bands would be suited to play at such an event. They needed to be dynamic, visually interesting, bursting with energy, danceable and, of course fun. One name jumped to mind immediately - Bluejuice.

As well as the loveable Sydneysiders, the recently-announced line-up includes Bang Gang (Doom), DJ Joey Kaz, Samba Ninja and a host of others. So, regardless of whether you are deaf, hard of hearing or simply fancy a memorable and fun night out, then snap up your tickets here and prepare to party with your senses!
