The SUMBA were a spectacular act to welcome home Team Australia from the 2019 Special Olympics World Summer Games in Abu Dhabi. From the very first email, Angus was incredibly helpful, generous with his time, and prompt to reply. Nothing was too much trouble! Our team arrived at Sydney Airport before 7am on a Saturday morning and while Team Australia were bleary-eyed from a 14 hour flight, the SUMBA were bright, cheerful and sounded incredible and soon brightened us all up with their incredible talent and catchy, recognisable tunes. We are so grateful to the SUMBA for helping us welcome home our Team in a truly memorable fashion. Thank you Angus and thank you the SUMBA! I would recommend the SUMBA for any event that you want to be truly magical!

Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness has worked with SUMBA on a number of occasions and has become one of its proud advocates! From performing at the Brydens Sydney Uni Flames season opener in the WNBL, to partnering with Sydney Uni Football Club for a day of Shute Shield rugby, SUMBA is a talented, professional and enthusiastic group with a can-do attitude that has made each of these events that much better. We could not recommend them more highly!

Update on COVID-19

Hi everyone,

As you are possibly aware, Sydney University sent out recommendations in the last few hours indicating that the University highly recommends all gatherings and events be cancelled or postponed due to the threat of the novel Corona Virus (COVID-19). The World Health Organisation has declared COVID-19 is a global pandemic, and as a result heightened preventative methods are stressed.

Therefore, as a results the SUMBA exec are figuring out what events and rehearsals we may have to cancel this semester. In our discussions, we are taking into account the recommendations of the Uni and the Australian government, and are factoring in actions of other organisations (e.g. the Sydney Royal Easter Show unfortunately deciding to cancel the show this year).

For those who haven't read my other really long post in the 'SUMBA Plays at the Rugby' event, we are no longer playing at the rugby tomorrow (Sat 14th), and will make sure everyone gets their instruments back who needs them...

We will keep you all updated about what decisions are being made, especially about rehearsal next Thursday (right now we are just waiting on more information from the Uni and USU). We're really sorry that new members are not getting the ultimate SUMBA experience, and hope you won't hate us all too much wooo  :(

If you have any questions or comments etc. etc. DO NOT HESITATE IN CONTACTING US to discuss things!
