The Soul Box, Sat Feb 14
What better way to end a busy Valentine’s Day, or any day for that matter, than with a bit of dirty sax?
MJ and the Blue Progression are MJ Hendry on lead vocals with Stephen Stone on guitar, Tom Stehlik on drums and David Bentley on bass with David Fletcher on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Andrew Vince delivering that dirty sax.
The band provided a perfect way to wind down after a long day out and about at today’s Fringe, and I especially liked the slow version of Roxanne, originally a Police song, but tonight this group made it their own. Other songs to look out for were originally performed by Amy Winehouse, Nick Cave, Nora Jones and even The Cure but no need to worry as your ‘standards’ aren’t left out with songs originally performed or written by Burt Bacharach, Dusty Springfield and Sam Cook among others.
It was a really relaxing 90 minute show and I recommend it to anyone who wants to wind down and have a little “chocolate” at the end of the day.
MJ and The Blue Progression performs Just Like Chocolate at The Soul Box on Fri 20 and The Glenelg Club on Sat Feb 21.
