Wall To Wall Bowie (Thursday)
This ever popular Hideaway celebration of one of the great British songwriters and musical icons returns for three nights that promise to be a poignant and joyous salute to the life and music of David Bowie.
With new arrangements, jazz twists and an imaginative approach, Musical Director Janette Mason leads special performances from vocalists David McAlmont and Sam Obernik for what is always a serious musical treat for both Bowie and Jazz fans alike.
David McAlmont (vocals)
Possibly one of the greatest singers this country has ever produced, David McAlmont has collaborated with everyone from Bond composer David Arnold to Michael Nyman, Paul Weller and most famously with Bernard Butler producing the classic hit single Yes. David's music is pure emotion, drawing unique, soulful portraits from his own life and philosophies.
‘David McAlmont is one of British pop's most precious hidden treasures. His voice is a sublime and miraculous thing’ – The Independent.
Sam Obernik (vocals)
A constant presence on the U.K. dance music scene, singer/songwriter Sam Obernik has been an in-demand guest vocalist for some of the genre's biggest names due to her distinctive vocal sound.
Janette Mason - Musical Director & Piano
If there's an explosion of curly red hair buzzing around at the business end of our beautiful Yamaha grand piano, and a room bursting with musically induced grins, then you can be sure it's Janette Mason at the ivories.
Appointed as Hideaway's first Musical Director in 2012, Janette's talents as a producer, arranger and band leader have left a distinctive and extremely popular mark on Hideaway's in-house productions, a series of sell-out shows that include Showtime Presents Bond and Wall to Wall: Bowie.
Also a talented composer, her Trio's 2010 CD, Alien Left Hand, was nominated for a Parliamentary Jazz Award and her current release ‘Red Alert’ has garnered great reviews.
“Her latest release…is destined to add to her reputation as one of our leading jazz lights” Keith Ames - The Musician
