The Fab Twins acoustic duo Stace and Jon deliver the full range of the Beatles incredible back catalogue, from Please Please Me to Abbey Road, in their own close vocal harmony style.
A recent gig review said “These guys’ love of the music of the Fab Four comes through in every note of their foot-tapping hip-swaying sashay through Beatlemania”. Promises to be a fab night!
Tuesday 26th February – Sax in the City
Local musicians John Mills and Louise Harris got together and launched Sax in the City last summer. The sax duo play an eclectic mix of cool jazz, ballads and Latin tunes to professional backing tracks.
With Louise’s vocals and John doubling on flute, the duo is building a reputation for quality that suits many musical tastes.
Video coming soon!
In another life when I toured around the US I was always amazed at the talent that performed in local bars and restaurants, sometimes to only a handful of people. Some of them, the performers that is, went on to become famous, think of Otis Redding and Little Richard from Macon Georgia Jamesetta Hawkins (Etta James) born to a 14 year old black prostitute in Los Angeles before going to live with her grandmother in San Francisco, a really suspicious start that.
The list is endless, but they all had to start somewhere. Since we at The Cellar started our music nights on a Tuesday over 2 years ago, I am thrilled by some of the local artists who appear. No they don’t come on stage with smoke machines and a 10 piece orchestra, they carry their own equipment and PA, even our very own 8 stone Alice who sings soul with such emotion that it belies her age and is backed by her boyfriend Harrisen on guitar.
Louise and John who are Sax in the City sing and play with an intensity and feeling that I feel privileged to hear. These and others are local artists with so much talent that they deserve a much larger audience and maybe one evening a modern day Ahmet Ertegun or Herb Abramson who together founded Atlantic Records in 1947 will visit The Cellar. In the meantime enjoy them while you can…..
