After last week’s pause for the St Kilda Festival, the CCQ sessions return this Friday with a new singer: Steven Rossitto; a new (to the Laika Bar anyway) bass player Kip Dale, meself on piano, and old Ben Stewart on guitar. You may have realised that the usual suspects will be in Hall’s Gap instead. Despite this profound change in the line-up, we will do our best to maintain the usual frequency of cock-ups, have a bit of fun and murder the Frank Sinatra songbook, the occasional Billy Joel number and a range of jazz standards. Should be an entertaining night – feel free to wander in..
Next week, the Sevil Sabah Trio will be starting a regular Thursday night spot, (with the Captain Chaos Quartet on Fridays). The aim of this is to generate a regular crowd at the Laika who will turn up with the expectation of there being jazz.. stay tooned!
