Night of nos­tal­gia and jazz

Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

Fran Bar­ton and the Kevin Clark Group will lead a mu­si­cal jour­ney through the past at Mana Lit­tle The­atre this Fri­day night.

Nos­tal­gia Ain’t What It Used To Be will fea­ture tunes from by­gone eras, brushed-off and made over with a twist.

It will fea­ture pop, jazz and folk hits by Cilla Black, Alma Co­gan, Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzger­ald, Dusty Spring­field, Carole King, Joe Stafford, and in­stru­men­tal hits by the Shad­ows, Winifred Atwell and oth­ers.

Pi­anist Kevin Clark, twice a Tui mu­sic award win­ner, has re-ar­ranged many of the old pop tunes into a jazz set­ting.

‘‘ It’s sur­pris­ing how some of them scrub-up,’’ says Clark, ‘‘but there are oth­ers that are a lost cause’’.

Reuben Bradley on drums and Mostyn Cole on bass com­plete the trio.

Rev­ellers are as­sured there will be some­thing for ev­ery­one, and dress from the 40s to the 70s is en­cour­aged.

The show starts at 8pm. $20 ad­mis­sion. Book­ings are es­sen­tial, call 233 9357.

Look­ing back: Kevin Clark and Fran Bar­ton will dust off and jazz up a mul­ti­tude of clas­sic songs at a gig this Fri­day.
