Sarah’s Jazz Club is turning up the music once again with its weekly live performances. This week has a few special evenings planned as the Club welcomes esteemed musicians to its stage. This Friday, the Afro Funk Quintet will perform its own arrangements of funk music from the 70s and 80s.

Mike Michael on the trumpet, Christos Yerolatsitis on the piano, Andreas Rodosthenous on bass, Giorgos Koulas on the drums and Rodos Panagiotou on percussions will bring their flair for afro-funk to Nicosia starting at 9.30pm. The main emphasis of the band is to explore musical expressions based on uplifting grooves and fusing Cuban and African elements.

On Saturday, the Kalopedis Quartet returns to the jazz bar to play swing, jazz and more. George Kalopedis leads the jazz band with his signature spirited vocals, Loukas Loukas is on piano, backed by the skilful rhythms of drummer Kris Grecian and double bassist Costas Challoumas. The band’s repertoire is swinging, classic jazz with tunes made famous by male vocalists such as Frank Sinatra, the Rat Pack and Michael Bublé.

Next week, the popular local band The Zilla Project will once again bring their signature blues sounds to Sarah’s Jazz Club. Their performance on November 27 will begin at 9.30pm, playing original compositions as well as electrified versions of well-known blues classics, in an energetic and supercharged two-hour set.
