Wall To Wall Prince (Saturday)
A celebration of the music and life of His Purple Highness – with a back catalogue more rich and varied than perhaps any other recording artist, Prince is one of the most influential artists of his generation. David McAlmont & Miss Baby Sol star on vocals with MD Janette Mason as Hideaway parties "like it’s 1999!"
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, all beautifully framed by the finest soul and now he's interpreting the music of Prince in an evocative show you'll love!
Miss Baby Sol
Miss Baby Sol is a British sultry-soul artist born in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In addition to her solo projects, Baby has collaborated and worked with a number of people in her capacity as a singer/songwriter, including Florence & the Machine and Paloma Faith. These include her chart-topping collaboration as co-writer and vocalist, with UK dance producer Redlight, as well as the 2014 campaign single for ‘No More Page 3’, ‘Now’s the Time’. Her music is influenced by artists such as Nina Simone, Eartha Kit, Grace Jones, Billie Holliday and Sarah Vaughan. Paloma Faith rates her very highly and she does not disappoint with her gorgeous vocals.
Janette Mason - Musical Director & Keys
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.
