About the Show/Event
Information for The Anti-Valentine's Day Jazz Cabaret with Louise Messenger at Crazy Coqs Cabaret, Inner London (Cabaret). "Love Is All Around", "Baby Love", "Love Me Tender", "Crazy In Love" - even the ridiculous "Sea Of Love". The list of songs about love is long, and Valentine's Day is the climax where all that romance erupts into a frenzy of store-bought chocolates and overpriced flowers. But what about those of us who don't necessarily like celebrating the over-cooked-over-romantic-hallmark-time-of-the-year? What about those of us who like our songs more cynical, or dark. An anti-love song if you will? Acclaimed jazz vocalist Louise Messenger has waded right into that sea of love and sunk all the way to the bottom to find songs of love, mystery and murder â the sometimes shocking and the straight-out funny thing that is love, and love gone wrong. From Copacabana to Delilah, Ella Fitzgerald to Bobby Gentry - Louise Messenger and her Swingtet will have you singing along and discovering the darker side of some of our most beloved pop and jazz standards.
