LADY MARMALADE & THE BEATNIK CATS

Beat Generation Jazz & Poetry Madness!

Een wervelende show brengt de jaren '50 Beatnik-sfeer weer helemaal terug..


Ultracoole tunes worden razendsnel afgewisseld met jazz-poetry over van alles wat men zoal bezighoudt: politiek, boodschappen doen, pure onzin en de diepe betekenis van het bestaan..

"a tip of burlesque" en impro-jazz, in combi met fifties klassiekers!

Inspiratiebronnen: Eartha Kitt, Annie Ross, Babs Gonzales, Eddie Jefferson, Jack Kerouac, Abbey Lincoln, Slim & Slam, Bird & Dizzy, Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs & Thelonious Monk!

"Lady Marmalade is the ultimate Hoochie-Coocher, and her beatnik backing-combo, with that coolest of all double-to-the-triplemax-bass-sounds, pumpin' keys, bongo-beats and RootieTootieTrinkleTinkle-drums, blended with the wailin' baritone sax-O-phone, drifting on a reed, just deliver the perfect background for Lady M.'s sensuous impro-vocals, off-the-wall poetry, wild jazz-dancing and oo-bop-sh’bam madness..

Man, like Wow, this hep kitten and her 'gators take you straight up to JazzBeat-heaven! So we tell you like it is: don't be a Stuffy-Turkey, but DO GET HIP with Lady Marmalade & The Beatnik Cats.. they're the far-out end!!"
