We’re really, really excited to announce the latest addition to the Goodgod family… our brand new eatery, Jonkanoo Caribbean Canteen!
Led by world-travelling Jamaican-American chef Damion Brown, Jonkanoo will be serving up delights from Jamaica, Trinidad, Cuba, Haiti, Bahamas, Dominican Republic and more in the Goodgod Front Bar for a limited run, starting this week on Wednesday 16 July.
It’s hard to think of anyone better-suited to running our new canteen than Damion Brown. He started working in his family’s West Indian/Caribbean restaurants in Miami and New York from the age of 10, catering to Miami’s island diaspora including Bob Marley’s family.
Since then, he’s gone on a 35-country food safari, worked in restaurants around the world, was head chef everywhere from intimate wine cellars to the set of feature films such as The Great Gatsby, and opened the Jonkanoo restaurant in Surry Hills.
Now, he’s bringing his coveted family recipes to the Small Club. Get ready for incredible Jerk, Creole Curry, Cuban Sandwiches, and heaps of other unique flavours at our brand-new eatery!
Full information including menu, hours and bookings will be available shortly.

Sydney merchants of bluegrass and “inner-western” The Morrisons are taking over the Danceteria tonight for a huge night with an all-star lineup of local heroes, including Emma Swift, Matt Mason (DMA’s), Brian Campeau (The Green Mohair Suits), Elana Stone (All Our Exes Live In Texas) and Eddie Boyd.
Well-known for a deep bag of tunes and a prolific love of all things country, we asked them to warm us up with some selections…
I’d been living in London for a while when I first heard this song (I’m a late comer to Paul Kelly), and this song made me miss Sydney so much I moved home. Beautiful.
We argue about this song a bit. Did Steve Earle or Levon Helm do this song better? Feel welcome to weigh in on this if you see us around. Also, we grew up in the mountains, making it a winner.
Its about some law in Alabama. I don’t really care about that, I just think it sounds good. We play this song a lot.
It’s a song about a girl. The girls now my wife, and I found out it IS love.
Just listen to it. An explanation will ruin it.
Check out The Morrisons tonight at Goodgod! Full info here.
Next week, FBi Radio are turning on FBi Click, a brand new station focused on dance and electronic music, hosted by some of Sydney’s finest crews.
We’re absolutely stoked to be part of the team, hosting a weekly Goodgod show, and we’ll be kicking it off with a stunning live set recorded recently by Detroit’s Jay Daniel. There’ll be plenty of other delights to follow as well, so make sure you’re getting amongst it!
There’s plenty of other amazing Sydney crews involved too, check it all out here and make sure you head to our massive full-venue launch party next Friday 27 June!
