Guest Blog: Melissa Errico Discusses the Allure of 'Noir'
and her Show OUT OF THE DARK at London's Crazy Coqs
The singer will perform at 7pm, from 1 -3 November
I'd like to invite you, London lovers of American music - and especially of dark, sexy American music - to my cabaret nightclub concert fantasy on November 1-3. For three nights in a row (yes, you can even come each night and unwind from your busy London day!) I'll sing from my new film noir album, "Out Of The Dark" - with shows every evening at 7pm.
I'll be in the basement of the Cafe Zedel, down that exquisite winding stair lined with Art Deco show posters and chrome sconces, nestled amongst the alluring American Bar and the expansive, stunning brasserie where we all tend to dine into the late hours after.
Stepping into Crazy Coqs, at least in my preparing mind, feels like I'm going to enter the absolute truth of this project. The Art Deco nightclub, leather seating with drinking patrons, candlelit and ready for a story, curled around the chanteuse and her jazz band, blowing hot and cool as the song demands. It's 1948 on W.52nd Street all over again in my mind... I can sense it.
