Mr. Jones is IN! For the fourth concert by Quirk and Glee!, we’re escaping the rain and going indoors at Terrakulture. We’re bringing the great Keziah Jones, one of the most exciting Nigerian musicians performing in or out of the country to town for a night of amazing bluesy, funky, soulful music.
Keziah Jones, born and raised in Nigeria, moved to France in the early 90’s and has been making waves there ever since, returning to Lagos now and then to perform some of his highly original and very funky music for us. A guitarist without peer, Keziah is a dazzling performer with great stage presence and an easy rapport with the audience. He recently performed at the Jazz Hole where he totally charmed the audience and convinced us that we had to bring him back and give our favorite audience the chance to see him perform.
Our favorite new wonder group, Vincent Ezelle will open the show. Led by the soft yet rich voice of singer Chuma, Vincent Ezelle is a lush mix of soul, folk music and soft rock. Their dreamy single, ‘Signs and Wonders’ is causing a stir on the radio and Smooth FM’s already snapped them up for a live acoustic session. They’ll be performing a great set of songs about loving and living in Lagos.
There’ll be a swank Hennessy lounge with bartenders making Hennessy cocktails as quickly as you can buy and drink them all night.
