“As the name suggests this club is far from the ordinary. Alex Burns gathers together a band of very experienced and journeyed musicians who all share a love of tropical rhythms, from Calypso and Rumba to Tango and Hawaiian. This five piece ensemble of steel guitar, ukulele’s, electric guitar, double bass, percussion, drums and vocals evolves this wonderful music further, breathing joyous life into these rhythms, culminating in an island music extravaganza.”
Thank you to Clare for this great feedback – “thanks for the music last night at Taboo (PBS gig), the best time dancing I’ve had all year. Your music just made me feel so happy.”
