AGAIN WE ARE VERY SORRY THE SEPTEMBER 24th JAWS CONCERT
HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
Availability of Venue and Groups is the reason in level two. Bands BIO is available at EVENTS. Jaws July 30th 2021. UNDER THE KITCHEN SINK review Bert What a great band, with a great singer. An unusual quirky name, but the line up of Matt Davis Saxs, Tenor and Soprano, Russell Stedman Bass, Chris Searle Drums, Mike Watt, Keys and Vocalist, Singer Lisa Tui was a refreshing change from our usual stable of Jaws groups. When Lisa sang her original,”Mama” I swear a tear or two fell. Matt kicked off the concert on tenor playing an old favourite “The Days of Wine and Roses” then the 4 piece went into Stanley Turrentines bluesy, jazz rock tune “Sugar”. Mike Watt on keys has his own very unique style and sound & backed up Matt’s playing with some excellent crafted solos. “Blues for Charlie” was a funky version of a standard blues. Next up was another Bob Renolds number called ‘Crush”, again featuring Matt and Mike. The band had a very eclectic set list, from swing to funk, touches of bossa nova and edges of rock with a rock n roll feel on the last number. Matts approach to introductions and patter was laid back and funny, relaxing everybody. Lisa took on Horace Silvers, ‘Sister Sadie’ and showed off some fine scat vocals. She has a great range, is very tasteful and can belt it out as she did on their final number. Russell and Chris were a great rhythm section, solid and funky and laid back as required. We got a wee taste of Chris’s funky drum chops at the end of the tune “Greasy G. Under The Kitchen Sink are the real deal and they finished their gig with a belter of an encore “Rock Me Baby”, Lisa letting loose on vocals. The whole concert was very relaxed and flew by. After 2 months of no jaws concerts it was good to send the big crowd home on a high.
THE VENUE is the THE ARA MUSIC ARTS AUDITORIUM at 130 HIGH STREET WHERE YOU CAN HEAR THESE FEATURED ARTISTS PLAYING LIVE MUSIC IN ITS TRUEST FORM.
