Salsa in the chicken shop

Never thought I’d be playing music in a Chicken Shop, but Ocean Grove has a great live music venue happening at its local Chicken Shop.

Sure you can get a 1/4 chicken and chips during the day. But in the evenings this groovy place transform into a pumping live music venue where the locals can indulge in some culture.

Enough room for a band, dancing, or a seat, 80 people can fit in here comfortably.

This weekend I was fortunate to play with Carinos Son. Some wonderful salsa and son grooves hitting the chicken Shop.

Fun times.
Great hospitality.
Beautiful people.
Close to the beach.

From jazz to Son

Delightful afternoon gig at The Brunswick Green with Kim Kelaart & Matt Apted playing some jazz standards. Even the flute got a turn.

Then onto another gig with a Latin Son band called Carinos Son. Privileged to play with Karina and her band. Got a lovely shot of Kaz playing harmonica. Played many old Cuban classics…..and even had time for a dance.

Late visit from Cuban Master singer Jose and Carlitos raised the party atmosphere!

What a contrast…..from jazz to Son…
