Wall to Wall George (Friday)
A unique re-imagining of the music of George Michael, put together by Hideaway's MD, Janette Mason, featuring the stunning vocals of David McAlmont (McAlmont & Butler) and Brendan Reilly (Basement Jaxx) with support from a top notch band.
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.
Brendan is a trained singer in jazz, a writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist. Brendan was born and raised in the USA within a family of musicians. At the age of 20 he moved to Europe, where he went on to release solo material, has played countless sessions and live shows as well as working as a backing vocalist for the likes of Basement Jaxx and many others.
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.
