Truly DiVine & Josh Johnston – Close Your Eyes
Cobalt Cafe, North Great Georges Street, Dublin 1
Tickets €12 on the night or €10 in advance from here
“mixing flirty theatricality and an authentic sense of period with precise vocals and an attention to the musical details of the songs” Cormac Lappin, Irish Times
After a packed out gig to launch their debut CD as a duo, Truly DiVine and Josh return to their regular home – Arthurs on Thomas Street. Playing music from the CD (which features songs made famous by screen sirens and jazz anti-divas such as Marlene Dietrich, Blossom Dearie, Doris Day, Rita Hayworth and others), the evening is a sensuous and fun mixture of nostalgia and great songs.

The Lazy Band – In My Garden
Dublin Unitarian Church
Save the date.
Launching a CD that has been 8 years in the making, Dublin’s The Lazy Band (the “The” is very important) are now a Dublin institution. Currently consisting of 10 musicians who all play and work in different bands, ensembles and collectives, this collective play on each other’s songs with a sensitivity only possible with a combination of excellent friends and excellent musicians. A mixture of folk, trad, roots and jazz (in different proportions depending on who has chosen the specific song), the effect is of unpredictable delight. Josh has played in the group for the last 2 1/2 years and is delighted to be featured on the recording. The CD includes a version of his tune “Asylum Harbour”. Ticket details to follow.
