Just in from Speakeasy Central:
Speakeasy Jazz’s Christmas party in the intimate and perfectly apt Rowing Club.
When? Thursday 10th December, from 10.
Prepare to revisit the early to mid-20th century: the music, the look, the feel, the aesthetic allure – and even the lollipops!
Resident Djs the Boudoir Boys are a mainstay at arts festivals, the Electric Picnic and at their regular Boudoir Sessions in Brogans, Ennis. These dastardly dapper Boys will spin a fine vintage of grandpa’s gramophone groovers: flapper-style, swing, boogie woogie, jump blues, bluegrass and even some Caribbean mento and calypso.
Miss Guided and Little Miss Match will serenade the crowd, with a piano, accordion and chanteuse set; their stories and sounds exude pure vivacious fun and the honest, irrepressible brightness of life. Listen closely, and you might hear a hint of Judy Garland, Billy Holliday or Mary Coughlan coming through.
Feel completely free to get dressed up in some old skool style: from flapper to teddy boy, trilby trimmings to sequin stylings: the choice is yours.
