THE BASEMENT BAR

Thu 27th June 8:00pm
Book Tickets
£ 10.00

Suzanne Noble sings bawdy blues from the likes of Bessie Smith, Lil Johnson, Blu Lu Barker plus jazz standards to make you laugh and cry.
As she likes to put it, “Who wants to sing about love, anyway?” Not for the fainthearted, these are songs to have you squirming in your seat with their sexual connotations. Top vocalist Nikki Lamborn describes Suzanne as a “cross between Bette Midler, Joan Rivers and every single female wild child you have ever met from the vaudeville scene!” Sophie Parkin says, “Suzanne puts on a great show.. if you ever enjoyed George Melly see it as a modern female version.”

Gorgeous George is a classically trained pianist who, when not playing his own style of honky tonk, can be found accompanying young prima ballerinas, opera singers and even orchestras.

Together they are Bawdy Blues Suz & Gorgeous George!

About the dirty blues:
This is a style of music made popular in the 20s & 30s when sexy and witty songs were all the rage. Some can be traced back to vaudeville while others were probably first aired in the brothels and speakeasies of the time. Cheeky more than rude, they were full of innuendo with references to hot dogs, snakes and the like!
