Are you a sucker for piano trios? Does the Duke rock your Juke? Is Fats where it’s at? Then deport yourself to Cafe Tasso in Friedrichshain where Omni-bass supremo „Symphony Sid“ Werner will pluck his strings with his mates from the Far East Trio, Declan Forde and Aidan Lowe, on some tunes by Edward Kennedy Ellington and Thomas „Fats“ Waller, done their (very idiosyncratic) way.
The date’s Tuesday, July 5 at 8 o’clock sharp.

THINGS AIN’T WHAT THEY USED TO BE (They’re Getting Better)
What a way to start the season! The Omni-Space Cadets wowed a well-charged audience big-time last Monday for their first Summer gig at J.K.’s. The lucky attendees were treated to the premiere of a new work in the band’s repertoire by Malian songstress Oumou Sangaré, „Dugu Kamalemba“. Meanwhile, in the perfect acoustics of Jonny’s Love Shack, Mood N’Dugu cracked more of his inimitable jokes: you could cut the atmosphere with a rusty bread knife.
Don’t think twice: J.K. is your next destination. Be seeing ya!
The President of the Omni-Fan Club was there, of course
