Don’t miss 2 amazing gigs this week, both at the Pizza Express Soho Jazz Club on 19th Jan.
Firstly, Sirena Riley.
“…performances that enchant surprise and ineffably capture the imagination. Riley’s lyrics and Donald’s music seem to “…performances that enchant surprise and ineffably capture the imagination. Riley’s lyrics and Donald’s music seem to flow together in a single flood of invention…” — Jazzwise Magazine.
Sirena has played all London’s top jazz venues including Vortex, Ronnie Scott’s and the Bull’s Head, and was also featured at the Art of Song Festival at the Leicester Square Theatre.
Secondly, Mari Wilson Soho Interpretations.
Mari Wilson (The Neasden Queen of Soul) first arrived on the scene in the early eighties with her trademark skyscraper beehive hairdo and iconic retro-fashion. Mari’s live shows have always been spoken about as an event – pure entertainment. In 2000, Mari was the obvious choice to play the legend Dusty Springfield on a hugely successful nationwide tour of Dusty the Musical.
Tonight Mari pays homage to Dusty with her unique interpretations of the classic hits, along with some lesser-known gems.
