On Thursday May 19, the Down South Jazz Club will take much pleasure in presenting London-born vocalist Pearlnoire’s “Come to Mama” Blues Show.
Pearlnoire is saucy and seductive with a voice evocative of “dark chocolate on a lovers tongue”.
Always an entertainer, Pearlnoire brings her unique style to various roles including Runway Model, Actress, Compere, Mistress of Ceremonies and many appearances on television and radio in the United Kingdom, West Indies and now Australia.
Having settled in Shellharbour, Pearlnoire is a treasured performer at the Illawarra Jazz Club and Kiama Jazz Festival, known for her rich velvety vocals, sassy style and show-stopping performances.
Performing a fusion of jazz, swing, soul, soft rock, funk and reggae, Pearlnoire fronts her own duo, trio and bands. She has also been snapped up by popular Sydney Blues band, Lemon Squeezing Daddies wowing audiences at the Australian Blues Music Festival and the Great Southern Blues and Rockabilly Festival.
For her ‘Come to Mama’ Blues Show in Merimbula, Pearlnoire has hand-picked her backing band to showcase her raunchy Blues style: Dorothy-Jane ‘DJ’ Gosper (backing vocals and blues-harp), Dave Blanken (guitar), Paul Leeder (bass guitar) and Mikey Stratford (drums).
Dorothy-Jane is known for her harmonica and vocal prowess. Close friends DJ and Pearl enjoy a dynamic interaction on stage.
Born and bred in Canberra, Dave Blanken is one of Australia’s outstanding Blues guitarists. His distinctive style has become a driving force behind iconic Canberra Blues bands Blind Freddy and The Groove Kings.
Audiences can’t sit still when rock solid rhythm section, Paul Leeder and Mikey Stratford join forces with their smooth shuffles and swings.
Music will commence at Club Sapphire at 7.30pm on Thursday, May 19. Cost is $15 for jazz club members and $20 for visitors. Bookings can be made by ringing Aileen or Kevin on 6495 9853.
