Tricity Vogue's All Girl Swing Band
  • Brighton Fringe

"Anyone else a massive fan of the divine Miss Vogue and her ukulele? Thought so." Time Out London Critics' Choice Charming musical cabaret from award-winning songstress Tricity Vogue. This ukulele-wielding artiste has hit Edinburgh Fringe shows and West End sell-outs under her belt. "The Tricity Vogue All-Girl Swing Band are not only full to the brim with top-quality virtuosic musicianship, they bring a level of glamour and theatricality rarely seen on the London jazz scene" Passing Clouds, Dalston Tricity tours internationally playing what she calls cheeky jazz, "like Peggy Lee after too many cocktails!" In 2007 Trinity took up the ukulele, after her band stood her up, and she's never looked back. Dubbed "ukulele doyenne" by Time Out London, and crowned "Queen of the uke" by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain's, Tricity has performed for musical royalty including Ravi Shankar and Norah Jones' sister - Anoushka - who she taught to play kazoo. Tricity formed her All Girl Swing Band in 2011 inspired by bandleader Ivy Benson, whose All Girl Swing Band became the BBC Resident Dance Band in 1943 and was the first band to play in liberated Berlin after World War Two. The All Girl Swing Band are appearing with a very special guest. Josephine Shaker is an American rhythm tap dancer or, as it's known in the vaudeville business, a hoofer! Josephine has also worked as choreographic consultant to Charlotte Church and performers in the Olivier award winning show La Soiree. She's one of the few people we know who making a living sometimes dressed as a sexy penguin. "Cabaret to run down side streets for" Time Out London

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.
