folks........just a quickie as I'm just about to leave for Turkey, after I've
unloaded all the PA equipment from last night's gig that is & what a
gig!! Thanks to you all for making it such a success....there's no doubt
Ian Siegal has that something extra.....superb voice, wonderful
playing, great band & of course a real showman. It would make my life
so much easier to book him ever month but I sense I might start to get a
few complaints. So.....Friday 13th at Zaffa (or Mu Mu if you
prefer).......I have yet another astonishing but quite different night for you
The Bottleneck Blues
The Matt Schofield
Doors 8:00pm 'til
Matt, as Ian Siegal said last
night, is arguably the finest guitarist in Europe.....well he's certainly
ONE of the finest guitarists in Europe & his repertoire, fluidity & just
plain virtuosity is wonderful to watch. His band members are also amongst
the best of the bunch with Evan Jenkins on Bass & Johnny Henderson doing the
keyboard wizardry. This is World Class Jazz/Blues, if you must give it a
label ~ in my book it's just damn fine music.
Rag Mama Rag many of you will know.....an outstanding
duo (Ashley & Debbie) to give you the Country Blues bits of the night.
How does she do that spoons thing?
So, something for everyone....two completely different
yet complimentary acts of the highest order.
See you on the 13th............
Remember, you don't have to dine to book a table but
the Italian food is excellent if you want a proper grown-up's night
