Intoxicating sounds of a sensational swing band
Moscow Drug Club are bringing their musical combinations to Wedmore Village Hall on Friday, February 1. Playing their original material with songs by the likes of Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Bertolt Brecht, Moscow Drug Club provide an intoxicating and intimate musical experience.
With guitars, double bass, violin and accordion, all topped off with vocals, this will be lively entertainment to brighten any dark winter's night.
In the darkness of late winter 2009, in Bristol, North American chanteuse Katya Gorrie and guitar virtuoso Denny Ilett stumbled into a pub and met a young Django guitarist.
The three of them found themselves chatting about the swing music of the 1930s and '40s and the Parisian songwriters of the '50s.

Not long after this meeting, the three new friends met a classically trained violinist whose passion for music of all genres was infectious and inspiring.
Denny's long time friend and double bassist was called in to complete the quintet, and Moscow Drug Club was formed.
Early gigs in the bars and clubs of Bristol provided evidence that Moscow Drug Club made a noise that made people happy.
Since that time, they have continued to purvey their interpretations of highly fashionable gypsy swing and leftfield cult classics along side beautifully written original material that seem to be pleasing crowds and critics alike.
Moscow Drug Club released their self-titled debut album, in 2010, which has received critical acclaim, and are now looking forward to recording a second album this autumn.
Tickets for the Wedmore night are £9 (including nibbles) available from The Paper Shop, Wedmore and from Liz McDonnell 01934 712649. To book a table of eight, contact Liz.
The show is also being performed at Charlton Adam Community Centre on Saturday, February 2, and tickets are available from 01458 850451.
