Soulful sounds swept out of the top floor of the club last Friday and soothed everyone’s Friday arvo eve angst. It was soul music good for the soul. Another beautiful crowd of beautiful music lovers coming out to far north beautiful Coburg (?) to see the beautiful Yolanda Ingley ll and her band. It was bee-U-tee-Full …okay that’s enough of that! Thank you Yolanda it was a gorgeous gig and it’s gotta be said Monica Weightman was truly on FIRE.
A HUGE thank you to ANGE from ‘Infrastructure’ for raising the stage another head height… Makes all the difference! And thanks to ANGE from ‘Sound Department’ for yet another great mix!
THIS FRIDAY JULY 13th:
This Friday we clear the dance floor AND then mop it, polish it and then you CAN eat your dinner off it. But we won’t be eating we’ll be dancing, to the amazing sounds of DR Hernandez.
The Doctor is coming to cure what ails you. So get your prescriptions filled this Friday with a double dose of electro-cumbia, funky reggae and soulful boogaloo. This 6 piece combo play hammond infused grooves with a three piece horn section, never fail percussion and Sally Ford’s trademark soaring Spanish vocals. Once again the cream of the crop of Melbourne musicians. Dancing shoes required and highly recommended!!
There’s a saying I like that goes ‘All’s good in the garden if the roots aren’t severed.’ This week its ‘All’s good in the BAR if the Fridges don’t break down! ( $ ) hmmm. Another week rolled by with a quick but expensive visit from Mr Refrigerator, lucky he was friendly and a muso to boot.
Some more fake fruit came up the stairs along with some sweet things, that you CAN actually eat!
Announcement: We now have sweet platters on offer mmmmmmm!
Turkish delight, Baklava, Maamoul (best date biscuits in the universe) and Persian treats. Goes great with our espresso Martini or even just a cup of tea.
Lastly, welcome to the club to our new subscribers and if you want to unsubscribe, go right ahead, but remember you will never know what goes on down the laneway, through the gate and up the stairs to the Kastoria Music club!!
xx Jody and the KMC team!!
