The Big Weekend – Cambridge Live

The Big Weekend – Cambridge Live

We are excited to announce we will be headlining the Friday night of this fabulous festival in Cambridge. The festival runs over the weekend of July 5th-7th at Parkers Piece in the centre of the historical city of Cambridge.
Stage time on the Friday is 21.00-22.00.

Cambridge Live says:
We are pleased to welcome the legendary Kid Creole and the Coconuts to the Big Weekend on Friday 5 July. Kid Creole and the Coconuts are celebrating its 38th Anniversary this year. That is amazing! Kid claims this is the Farewell Tour, but he has been saying this for 10 years.
Joining him on stage this summer:
The Coconuts =
Sarah McGrath
Roos Van Rossum
Charlotte De Graaf
The Band =
Toby Goodman (drums)
Mark Anthony Jones (guitar)
Michael Gorman (keys)
Oroh Angiama (bass)
Chris Storr (trumpet)
Barnaby Dickinson (trombone)
Edgar Jones (saxophone)
Kid Creole and the Coconuts was born out of the red hot embers of Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band. In the 1970’s the Savannah Band had successfully merged the big band sound of the 1940’s (Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, Louis Prima) with the dance floor beat of the disco era. The Kid fused the big band sound with every strain under the sun – calypso, soca, salsa, rhythm and blues, soul, jazz, funk, hiphop, etc… with a strong accent on Caribbeanism. Kid Creole and the Coconuts thus became pioneers of what became known as mongrel music. In other words – a delicious but strange potpourri of goodness.

The Big Weekend is a free to attend, non-ticketed, community event comprised of three days of free family entertainment on the central area of Parker’s Piece, provided by Cambridge City Council, and organised by the charity Cambridge Live.

Kid Creole and the Coconuts are very excited to playing this fantastic venue this summer!

For tickets go to: TICKETS

The Roman Theatre of Orange is a Roman theatre in Orange, VaucluseFrance. It was built early in the 1st century AD. The structure is owned by the municipality of Orange and is the home of the summer opera festival, the Chorégies d’Orange.

It is one of the best preserved of all Roman theatres, and served the Roman colony of Arausio (or, more specifically, Colonia Julia Firma Secundanorum Arausio: “the Julian colony of Arausio established by the soldiers of the second legion”) which was founded in 40 BC. Playing a major role in the life of the citizens, who spent a large part of their free time there, the theatre was seen by the Roman authorities not only as a means of spreading Roman culture to the colonies, but also as a way of distracting them from all political activities.

Fiesta Sète

FIESTA SÈTE, FRANCE
NEW DATE JUST ADDED!
Festival : Fiesta Sète, France
Venue : Théâtre de la Mer
City : Sète
Date : August 6th  2018

It was twenty-two years ago … the punch was more fashionable than the mojito, and Wim Wenders had not yet become infatuated with Cuban papys that would not be long in the wake of his Buena Vista Social Club , to capsize the biggest international stages. But the very young Métisète association already swore by Afro-Cuban rhythms. In 1997, stunned by a little sea breeze, José Bel Mr. Open Music, a legendary record store in Sète (from 1975 to 2002), music lover and cultural activist in the youth clubs and film club, decided to extend his love for music by creating a festival that he still runs. this day voluntarily.Accompanied by some local locals just as passionate they have decreed that the Sète Corniche was well worth the Malecon Havanese, and that the time was ideal to put the Fiesta Latina festival on stream . The Latin sail then pushed them to other shores, from the Indian Ocean to Africa via the Balkans: a whole world of music that the festival, aptly renamed Fiest’A Sète , never stops explore since to share the riches.

It was twenty-two years ago, and the world was not yet a click away. Indeed, we can today, without leaving his chair, discover an underground group in Kinshasa or even attend the concert of a Pakistani cult artist disappeared for fifteen years. But try, in front of your computer screen, to taste this stunning sea breeze, and the sweetness of a summer evening sublimated by an unknown language; So try, thanks to the internet, to hit in the hand of a legend of the tempo of Bootsy Collins or Nile Rodgers, to dance among the musicians of Toto La Momposina, to meet the warm glance and the radiant smile of Boubacar Traoré. So try to feel the emotion of the meeting, the sweet vibration of the shared party, the intensity of the living music. Not won …

Yes, live music rather than world music simply because the ones we cherish speak to the present of our world today. Our choices remain guided, for the most part, by a certain idea of ​​modernity, miscegenation and movement . Nothing excites us as much as the musical proposals with new flavors, the most audaciously prepared mixtures, provided that quality and pleasure are at the rendezvous !

“Cherchez La Femme,” a new musical written by August Darnell and Vivien Goldman featuring the music of Grammy-nominated songwriters Stony Browder Jr. and August Darnell.
Synopsis: Set in Manhattan and Haiti, the play explores heavy themes and lightweight dreams.
It’s reckless, it’s rhythmic, it’s romantic.

CHERCHEZ LA FEMME

is a musical extravaganza that tells the story of one man’s loss and another man’s gain and the powerful women who make it all possible. It explores dark themes (abandonment, sibling rivalry, unrequited love) and light themes (sexual healing, the pursuit of happiness,  the smell of success) but never without inviting you to shake your head and tap your toes to the infectious neo-urban-jungle grooves. The play is set in New York City and the Caribbean in the 1980’s.
It’s reckless. It’s rhythmic. It’s romantic.
