Shaken Not Stirred - For lovers of the greatest James Bond themes this event offers an evening of fabulous contemporary live music and an opportunity for the audience to glam it up and delve back into the fun of everything 007!

The memorable theme songs have been reimagined on Penelope’s latest recording 'Penelope Sai Sings 007’. Her killer band bring their distinctive vibe covering 20 of the best Bond themes, stripped back and jazzed up with a spunky latin spin. Brendan St Ledger - piano, Greg Royal - bass, Nic Cecire - drums and Simon Ferenci - horns.

Penelope Sai is a jazz vocalist and lyricist who infuses her diverse repertoire with a range of influences as it traverses refreshing interpretations of well loved jazz standards and striking original compositions.

Following an extensive career in fashion, Penelope moved to Paris to train in voice and improvisation with award winning jazz singer/teacher Anne Ducros and performed with numerous jazz ensembles.

During this time Penelope launched a number of creative partnerships that have been sustained through her solo recordings.

The latest album, Penelope Sai Sings 007, is the jazz artists 4th release, and what a spicy and brave offering it is! Sexy, dramatic & seductive, her guest soloists include the sublime French jazz violinist Didier Lockwood, and virtuoso American trumpeter and leader of The Count Basie Orchestra, Scotty Barnhart.

These extraordinary musicians bring impeccable flair and take the recording to the next level of cool. The resulting record sizzles. It is timeless and a pure listening pleasure as it draws us back into the fabulous world of 007.

The artist's 5th album is due out later this year.
