WHAT'S ON

The Champagne Blues Band

Wed 18th Jul. 9:30:pm

New Orleans meets East London in this low down, female-led blues band. With internationally acclaimed, blues vocalist Miss Kerri Layton at the helm, she steers her pirates of the sonic ocean in the direction of the lost voices of the blues, circa 1930. Sirens of the jook joints, anthemic wonders of the barrel houses, madames of Storyville,  all simmer and quiver in delight at being beckoned through the champagne oracle. Peppered with some storytelling,  a la Evelyn Laye, this show will be told to you quite literally, 'All Through a Glass of Champagne'.

The band consists of some of London's most seasoned musicians, who have played for the likes of Kula Shaker, Alabama Three, Bollinger Champagne,  Hackney Empire and The BBC, led by singer Kerri Layton, who also runs independent record label Dixiebird Records.
