Enjoy an intimate soiree with Cousin Alice, bluesy jazz singer and Ben Fernandez on keyboards, for the first of the 'Lounging Out' concert series. Sip a glass of wine, sit back and listen to the sultry tones of Alice's voice with well known bluesy jazz pieces and snazzy originals, in the comfort of someone else's lounge whilst grazing on a delicious supper platter.
“Think Tom Waites meets Peggy Lee & Marianne Faithful” - Cousin Alice’s unique singing and playing is gritty, heartfelt and sweet, delivered with humour and a captivating personality. She seduces audiences with her smokey voice and antique banjo-ukelele playing, backed by the finest Jazz and Blues Musicians. Holding the crowd in the palm of her hand, be it a large music venue or intimate cabaret club, Cousin Alice is a magnetic performer. A talented singer/songwriter, she performs a collection of jazz standards, pop, nostalgia, blues and her own original work, including “Kukerichoo” , a number one hit in South Korea. Based in London but raised in New Zealand, of Barbadian/Welsh/English/Sephardi parentage, she draws on a rich infusion of Maori, Polynesian, Carribean and Calypso culture. Live performances have been embraced around the world, New Zealand is fortunate to have Alice back home and performing.
