My friend Charles took me on a surprise outing on my first night in London to the 606 Club, which, according to the Sunday Times is,
“A (late night) basement club hidden behind an elusive doorway...Here young up- and coming musicians are encouraged to play alongside more established names. The good food is a must at this relaxed and informal club where musicians come to eat, drink and join in the impromptu sessions”.
I have to say it is a great place, such a cosy venue with fabulous energy and friendly staff who really went out of their way to make this such a special night out. We were blessed with Manteca Feat and Martha Acosta on vocals, a 7 piece Salsa band which is rumoured to be one of the best Salsa bands on the scene with some of the most famed Latin musicians.
Needless to say there was lots of toe tapping, clapping and smiling faces, we even managed a little Salsa dancing even if I did struggle to remember the steps. Martha was wearing this wonderfully glittering sequined top which danced rays of mutil-coloured light around the stage and was enchanting in its simplicity and served to encapsulate the energy and feeling of the whole evening. Well done guys and girls, you have something special going on with the collection of your creative energies.
It was a fantastic night, truly inspiring, so lovely to do something so completely different, so thank you to Charles for going with your intuition on this one. x
