The Band, and the management, agreed that Susie’s first gig at Laika was a hit. She looked a million dollars, started a bit nervous (who wouldn’t?) and by the second song had it all together … and swung. Dancing by the end of the evening.
This week sees a few serious musicians in the Joint:- one of me fave pianists Ade Ish, Chelsea Allen and the Director of eResearch at Monash University (well, that is what it says on Paul Bonnington’s Linked In page…) will be playing a mix of jazz and originals.
The previous instrumental nights have been some of the best, and this trio is as good as you could wish – boogie on down the Boulevard of Broken Drains and tip back a cocktail or a glass of red to some fine ol’ music.
Ade Ish Trio, from 8.00pm Friday 28th November at The Laika Bar, 9 Fitzroy Street, St Kilda,
