European Cotton Club
It's a European Cotton Club Charleston extravaganza. This lively show mixes up old standards, cool jazz, an abundance of French, Spanish and Italian songs as well as songs featured on the Great Gatsby Soundtrack like a traditional jazz version of Beyoncé’s 'Crazy In Love' and Amy Winehouse's 'Back To Black'.
Cathrine Summers is one of Perth's premier jazz vocalists. Her rich honeyed voice, broad vocal range, engaging stage presence and 'instantly familiar' candour has given her a title of a 'delight to watch'. Summers wonderfully hosts this swinging spirited live-music show with delightful interplay between music and narrative taking the audience on a lively journey of 30s Jazz.
Featured throughout the show is the famous 'Charleston' rhythm popularised by a 1923 tune called "The Charleston". The dance was actually banned from many dance halls during the 1920s because it was considered to boisterous and indecent.
Come along and enjoy songs such as Puttin' On The Ritz, Cheek To Cheek, In The Mood, Sing Sing Sing and more intertwined with tid bits of the rich history of the 30s.
You’ll find yourself compelled to tap along to Cathrine Summers’ and her Quartet of some of the best musicians in the West. Joining her is Brodie Stewart (Piano), Alistair Peel (Double Bass), Daniel Harrison (Drums) and Marc Osborne (Sax).
A larger than life energetic vibe! BOOK NOW!
