Come and hear us on Sunday!

Laughing (1)We are very excited to be performing at the Harrison in Kings Cross on Sunday with our good friends Blue Vegas.  It should be a barn-storming evening featuring songs to make you laugh, make you cry, but mostly just to make you drink gin.  Arrive early to get a seat!

Sunday 22nd November, 7.30pm

The Harrison, 28 Harrison Street, Kings Cross http://harrisonbar.co.uk/

Tasting notes: Opihr and Perpetuum Jazzile’s Africa

It is pouring outside so we’re pouring a gin.  Welcome to the first in our series where we recommend a fabulous pairing of one of our favourite gins with an equally brilliant a cappella performance to drink it to.

Up first, in honour of the monsoon that has been unleashed outside, we bring you the spicy warmth of Opihr with its overtones of peppers, cumin, orange, cardamon and coriander.  This sounds like it might be a bit too much but somehow the master distillers pull it off and we love the cosiness of a cool glass of Opihr.  Definitely one to enjoy when it is cold and miserable out there.

Apparently Opihr was the name of a legendary land, in the time of King Solomon, which provided silver, gold and spices.  All we can think is that King Solomon was a fool not to also demand delicious gin.

So, grab a glass, add a slice of ginger to spice it up even further and settle down to listen to the brilliant Perpetuum Jazzile’s performance of Africa.  We love the way they so brilliantly evoke the storm at the beginning and then, when the beatbox and the singing kick in, we’ve left our grey, urban landscape behind and are transported.

Mmmmm….delicious!

A fab weekend at the Hand in Hand Festival

We had a great time singing at the Hand in Hand choir festival in Brighton this weekend.  It was wonderful to hear so many other choirs performing and great to be back on stage with our new line up.

Here are some of our favourite photos from the festival.
