Blakes Lounge Bar, Alsancak – Gypsy Jazz evening

By Margaret Sheard …..

Blakes Lounge Bar and Bistro in Alsancak will be pleased to welcome you on Friday 7th April, starting at 8.30pm, for the amazing performance of the ‘The Hot Club of Cyprus’ in a program of GYPSY JAZZ (otherwise called French SWING or Jazz Manouche) in a special tribute to Django Reinhardt (HOT CLUB FRANCE).

Influenced by Django Reinhardt and the violin player Stephane Grappelli they perform 1930’s swing blending Bossa Nova, Classical music, Ethnic, Soul and Pop.

Huseyin Altan – Guitar and Vocal

Kadir Evre – Guitar

Greg Makamain – Double Bass

Konstantinos Eframidis – Clarinet

Featuring Ersen Sururi – Viola

These guys usually only play concerts in the South or Lefkosa, so a performance not to be missed.

There will be no food service this time, it will be bar only.

Tables can be reserved with a minimum of 4 persons, by calling Delia on 0548 839 4007 but there is also plenty of room at the bar or armchairs and sofas.
