London-bandet Sid Sings gjester Café Magenta fredag 11 september, kl 22.00. Covercharge er kun kr. 100,- Dette er en unik mulighet til å få høre dette spennende, internasjonale bandet som spiller alt fra punkete rockabilly til fløyelslåter av Elvis. Bandet sier om seg selv:
«It seemed inevitable that front woman Nikki would end up with a Band inspired by Blues and Punk when as a child her first gig was seeing John lee Hooker and then as a teenager John Lydon chatted to her whilst she was upside down filming a TV series.
On a mission to find someone who saw the world as she did Nikki found Scottish Guitarist Sandy Michie through an advertisement in Melody Maker. Sandy was immersed in the Indie World but his passion for slide guitar made a perfect fit and Sid Sings was born.
They sometimes perform a stripped down set with just guitar and voice and then when the pounding of drums is required they have an Italian drummer who will put his espresso and grappa on hold to perform with them.
They have shared the stage with The Jim Jones Revue ,Hugo Race and The Fatalists , Mama Roisin , Yat Kha , Nine Below Zero, Eli Paperboy Reed ,Johnnie Bassett and Ten Years After. They have even supported Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler from The Jam at The Forum London.
Festivals have included Guilfest, Gold Coast Ocean festival, Nozstock , Avant Garde Blues Festival Italy and Cognac Blues Passions Festival in France where they were named band of the day and stars of the nu –blues. The press described their performance as mind blowing.
They have toured Italy ,Austria,Portugal and France.
Sid Sings have no game plan other than to keep performing for anyone who want’s to hear them.
