The Laika Bar: Ruby Rogers and the Didgeridoo.. whatever next?

The highly Gallic Sonia Davoine next… but I digress…

An exciteable Ruby Rogers leaped out of her stretch limo (at least 30m long, and so arrogant it drove her down the tram tracks), and launched into a highly entertaining set in front of a crowd that started sparse, but swelled pleasingly as the night wore on.

After a cameo from pianist Sam Izzo, the evening ended with Will Barton sitting in on Didgeridoo, for some entertaining somewhat free form jazz, at a level to which trumpeter Brae Grimes rose, whilst Dan Pickard and I sat on the rhythm and debated whether a change of chord was permissible in the circumstances. It was, as it turned out. Great experience.

Ruby has lost none of her ability with jazz tunes, and in wowing a crowd. She has promised to return

Madamemoiselle Sonia D

Tres chic, the Parisienne diva returns, with more of her gypsy jazz, french tinged songs and the occasional standard thrown, swinging, in. Meself and Dan Pickard (bass) will accompany her, and there just might be a special surprise appearance by none other than… well, you will have to be there to find out!

Sonia Davoine, at The Laika Bar, this Friday 6th March, from 7.30 – 10.00pm. Allez les enfants!
