Subtle, subversive, satirical swing – Andrew London Trio tour – October 2017.
Audiences loved Andrew London’s lyrics and laid-back singing along with ever so smoothie Nils Olsen’s sax and clarinet solos when they toured previously with Hot Club Sandwich.
Now in the Sandwich tradition, they’re joined by Andrew’s wife Kirsten on bass to pronounce on the minutiae of the middle class, middle-aged, Middle Earth concerns, delivered in a deceptively innocuous 1940s swing style.
Over 20 years of touring has enabled songwriter London to gather material from the shearing sheds of Southland to the boardrooms of Auckland, leaving him free to pronounce on pretentious socialites, modern parenthood, male insecurities, the Internet, and much much more.
Expect intermittent forays into folk, blues, country and hip-hop - plus poignancy and pathos from the Beatle-esque harmonies provided by Kirsten and Nils.
