The band ‘Moscow Drug Club’ wowed audience members at this year’s Canterbury Festival at the Festival Speigeltent, by providing an ‘intoxicating and intimate musical experience’.
With a mixture of Berlin Cabaret, Hot Club de la France, Nuevo Tango and Gypsy Campire, audience members listened as the band performed a mixture of original material combined with the likes of songs by Peggy Lee and David Bowie.
A favourite performance of the night was ‘Voodoo Queen of New Orleans’, which is the title album of the bands new album ‘Voodoo Queen’. The band consists of leading lady and vocalist Katya Gorrie, Andy Crowdy who plays the double bass, Will Edmonds on guitar, Jonny Bruce on Trumpet and Mirek Salmon on the accordion.
Mariah, from Faversham said: “I would definitely come back and see them again, they were so friendly, it’s been a great evening.”
Judith also from the Faversham area said that the performance was “very polished”
Judith also went on to say, “There has been such a great atmosphere and such a mixture of music tonight, I’ve loved it.”
Leading lady, Katya Gorrie let the audience in on a secret at the end of the evening. She told the audience how the name of the band came about. The band came across a tune by Canadian song writer B.B Gabor who was famous in the 1980s. The band loved the song so much that they named themselves after it hence, ‘Moscow Drug Club’
The performance started at half past nine and lasted for around two hours, tickets were priced at £15.00 for the event.
This is the second time that the band has performed at the Canterbury festival, it is clear by the applause at the end of the evening that audience members would love to see them again next year.
