It was my Sue's birthday and we really enjoy that light swinging, easy jazz that the likes of Django Reinhardt, Benny Goodman and so many 30's musician"s played... perfect for good food and a shared bottle of merlot etc
What I hadn't realised was how many more bands there are playing this music now!
Le QuecumBar is the place to see them!
We had absolutely fabulous music all night from Cafe Manouche, fast moving finger picking accurately and sensitively played by two, smashing supporting double bass, friend on a clarinet that fitted magically, and Natalia in proper 30's style vocals totally 'in it', - we look forward to seeing them again. The evening was accompanied by an attentive, warm welcome by thestaff and delicious food, attractively presented and the right portion size. I should have met & thanked the chef!
I had phoned up to check all info was up to date as couldn't work out how to book and was told " just go online and book" I slid down 'home' and 'contact us' and couldn't get it working, BUT Natascia was kind and let us in as if we had booked! - Thanks Natascia x ... the trick is to use 'Listings', go to the date and your band, if it's got a ticket box you're in! (I'm old and don't 'get' these computer things!)
We had travelled nearly hour and a half, 3 trains, walked ½ hour so it had better be worth it!... Wonderful, fabulous night out :-) little bit costly but in London they've got to pay their rates too!
We're going back in our holiday's sometime (25 miles north of London is too late for work the next day :-() and would love to experience a jamming session and some more gypsy jazz bands.
Thanks all at Le QuecumBar - see you again :-) Chris & Sue
