Just been to a Jazz and Soul Night featuring Wyvern Jazz and Soul Bands and the Barton Peveril Soul Band. Also featuring a ‘house band’ with guest vocalists, some of who were brilliant. Particularly enjoyed Tom Hayes singing Disclosure’s Latch and Lauren Somerville singing Jamie Cullum’s Twentysomething.
I’m a bit biased as my Nephew plays alto sax for the Barton Soul band but it was shit hot.
There was me thinking that all the youngsters are out raping old folk and blowing up babies in Syria, but actually they are playing the fuck out of Stevie Wonder, Minnie Ripperton, Beyonce, The Jackson Five, Alicia Keys, Aretha Franklin and Randy Crawford at the 1865 club.
