****Dolly Says: "I've only once had a bad night at the Buffalo! All the other times have been a bag full of jolly! It's small, but the atmosphere is really teriff! Bands are usually tops and DJs are the best! And it's worth the trip just to have your piccy taken in front of The Famous Cock pub next door! Whoooosh!!"****
Hey Boy Hey Girl
90 Lots Rd, London, SW10 0QD
The golden age of the vocal duet is back! Ray Gelato (winner Ronnie Scotts best band, Radio 2 best jazz vocalist nominee), and Kai Hoffman (award-winning US Diva) have developed a wonderfully entertaining show celebrating the magic of the boy girl duets, made famous by such celebrated duos as Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. This brand new show, featuring Ray, Kai and their fantastic backing band, takes classic duets from th...e great American songbook such as ‘I’m in the Mood for Love’, ‘Baby it’s Cold Outside’ ’Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off’ and many, many more wonderful tunes and performs them with fun, romance and swing! Hey Boy, Hey Girl is sure to rock you out of your seats with Ray and Kai’s fun and jumpin’ renditions of some of your favourite classic songs.
****Dolly says: "Kai and I met having our hair done at the same salon, Nina's Vintage Hair Parlour, in London! And she's lovely!"
DOUBLE SHOT O' SOUL
Below The Three Crowns, 175 Stoke Newington High Street
London N16 0LH
Get your kicks from the stage and from the 45s! At the new venue, new format Double Shot O’ Soul there is live music from folk-poppers THE WASHINGTON RAYS, followed by DJs Smart Phil & Mickee spinning the best music ever made: think Tamla Motown, Stax Records, northern & club soul and more to keep you dancing all night long.
****Dolly says: "Stokey, Northern Soul, real vinyl, proper night out."
And as usual, if any of you lot know of any happening in London that should be on here, let me know!!
