Moishe's Bagel

Music is a passion for most people as it enriches our lives and there is space for every type of music. Tonight's offering is a eastern european blend which while different is hugely entertaining.The band delivers exactly what their Fringe programme entry promises without over-pushing themselves: this must come from the years of experience they have collected both individually and as group and allows them to work the audience like the consummate professionals they are.

Their music is an interesting fusion of styles and is something unique, but the audience can't help but dig the rhythms and the beat as the music washes over them. However, it would help if the band were to open up slightly and not expect everyone in the audience to know their history and back-catalogue. Nevertheless, those who did know the band’s music were lapping it up and enjoying it immensely - this vibe radiated throughout the theatre. Ultimately this was an enjoyable, interesting evening of music and I would certainly look out for the band again at the Fringe.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
