Caravan Music Club, Friday 16th December 2011

I had heard about the Stax on Soul shows around town, but I hadn't been to any of them as I am usually busy. I did know that Loretta had performed in some of them and enjoyed it so that was enough for me to come to this show.

It was great line up of singers also and I was looking forward to seeing Suzannah and Liz do a song together again.

I was surprised that I knew most of the songs played on the night, I knew the Stax label was big, but I had not heard that many performers from it before. Everyone was up and dancing within the first couple of songs.

What I also liked is that it hardly seemed like an two one-hour sets at all as it went so quickly with everyone dancing and some people singing along. I am sure this revue will return in the future as it went really well on the night.

I don't know if I will go to other venues to see it, but I will be back to the Caravan to see the show again.
