With Buddy Love at The Famous Blue Raincoat

This event drew together several musical contacts.

It’s been some years since Kevin backed Buddy, so he was pleased to renew the musical acquaintance of Buddy Love. Buddy’s singing style is reminiscent of Vince Jones and Chet Baker, two of Kevin’s favourite male singers.

Ann (flute) has recently recorded with Buddy for his upcoming CD.

Kevin and Jess (bass) had played together at the Castlemaine Jazz Festival, a few months ago. And Spike (drums) came to the notice of Kevin and Ann at one of the events of the Melbourne Music Performers.

It was our first time at The Famous Blue Raincoat, a really nice venue where we were well looked after by James, Vanessa and Holly.

Unfortunately, the venue is changing hands and live music might not be in the future plans.
