Tuesdays with: The Greg Lyons Quartet @ The Sugar Club


Greg Lyons - Island To Island Posted by Hello

Live at Sugar Club every Tuesday from 18th January. 9:30pm - midnight

Given the current state of live music in Kuala Lumpur, we have a real reason to celebrate the start of the regular Tuesday night occurrence of some real kick-ass contemporary jazz. The band will feature Greg Lyons on saxes, Lewis Pragasam on drums and Andy Peterson on bass – all world-class performers that haven’t been willing to commit to any kind of regular gig in KL for years – plus young upstart Justin Lim on piano/keyboards.

They will be playing songs from Greg’s CD “Island to Island” and other new and old originals plus great songs from both the standard jazz and more contemporary songbooks. The main focus will be on developing a really solid group sound and working new material for the next recordings to the point where it is very fluent and natural.

There is also the strong likelihood that you will see the larger “Nonet” sometimes take the stage to develop material for the upcoming CD recording. On top of which there will be plenty of stellar musicians joining the group from time to time.

How long this lasts is mainly up to YOU! The only way that this can be made feasible/sustainable is if YOU support us so come down and be part of this rare opportunity for real jazz lovers to have a night out.

Sugar Club is the brand new club in the same premises as the old “Tin Mine”, to the left of the lower lobby of the Crown Plaza Mutiara (formerly Hilton) on Jalan Sultan Ismail. Tel 03-2143 0020

There will be no cover charge!
