A Great Escape in Kenilworth

August 14, 2011

As well as private bookings – parties, weddings and so forth – I’m often booked to sing at events which are open to all.  One such occasion was a dinner-cabaret that took place the other week at the delightful Cafe Escape in Kenilworth.

Cafe Escape, Kenilworth

Cafe Escape is one of  a growing number of cafes that sometimes extend their opening hours into the evening to stage music and cabaret nights.  Its stylish, modern interior has a smart vintage twist which made it the perfect venue for a night of classic songs from the 1920s, 30s and 40s.

The sell-out audience enjoyed a delicious two-course dinner while I served up a couple of forty-five-minute sets featuring some of my favourite songs including “Pennies From Heaven”, “Blue Moon”, “Stardust” and “Top Hat, White Tie and Tails”.

I rounded off the evening with “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye” which provided a fitting farewell to a terrific audience.  My thanks to Gill and all the staff at Cafe Escape for a wonderful evening.  I can’t wait to sing there again.

You can find Cafe Escape at 47 Abbey End, Kenilworth, Warwickshire CV8 1QJ.  For details of future events call 01926 863200.
