Luxor Bar, Saturday, Angie Strickland and the CCQ try out a new venue

Innovation all round, this week – on Saturday the bubbly Miss Strickland will be fronting the CCQ (the usual suspects plus Spike Kiernan on drums) for a set at the Luxor Bar – in the hope that if it all goes well, we will be setting up a regular Saturday night thing…

Angie S comes off a hot set at the Grampians Jazz, and gets better and better. If you are at a loose end, why not cruise on down and join in?

The Laika Bar: Angie Strickland with the CCQ

Last Friday saw a polished little Ange, accompanied by Jason Chalmers playing out of his skin on saxaphone, and Doug Kuhn (bass) and meself (piano) fill in the doofy bits and twiddly bits where needed. The Diva trotted out a coupla great new  ballads.

A good turn up of people dropping in for a listen, although not as big as the first week. Well received by the Laika folks.

No Captain Chaos Quartet this week, as the Laika had a prebooked solo singer. Next week… stay tuned!… the CCQ will be back.
