Music @ The Cellar
TUESDAY NIGHTS – 7.30pm till 10pm
Every Tuesday we have live music at The Cellar – the very best singers and
musicians from the South West. Jazz and Blues to Country and the standards.
All musical tastes are fully satisfied.
Tuesday 13th November – The Fab Twins
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 20th November – Blind Justice Page
Whether its bluegrass, mountain music, modern country from Dolly and Mr Cash to Bob Dylan and Neil Young, Steve Page vocals and guitar is joined by Rob Grist on stand up bass.
Tuesday 27th November – The Belle Adventure
Kate and Si are a duo with a sexy, bootlegging, speakeasy vibe. Cotton club jazz and blues mixed with stomping saloon country and soul. Covers & originals.
Tuesday 4th December – Joanna Swan
The best lounge singer since The Lady (Billie H) and guitarist Nick Pullin incorporate infectious rhythms into their, our and we hope your, favourite songs.
Tuesday 11th December – Pianoman Mark
Mark Feven performs solo rock piano / vocal gigs in the Bristol, Somerset and South Devon area.
Heavily influenced by the likes of Elton John, Billy Joel, Bruce Hornsby and Joe Jackson, Mark performs his own rock piano arrangements of classic pop and rock songs from the last 50 years. This includes his own interpretations of songs by bands such as The Clash, The Jam, ELO, The Kaiser Chiefs, The Boomtown Rats and Razorlight as well as classics by his favourite singer / songwriters of our generation.
Tuesday 18th December – John Prescott Vocalist
Swing sensation John P is fast gaining a reputation as one of the most exciting versatile jazz singers to emerge in the south west in recent years. His smooth vocals encompass a wide repertoire from the great American songbook, with influences from artists such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole and, more recently, Michael Bublé and Robbie Williams. He can also perform classic favourites from 60s, 70s & 80s and Musical Theatre songs and sings as part of ‘The All Seasons’ – A tribute to Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons.
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…..
