Deja Vu at the Somerville


Deja Vu at the Somerville

So how come you get a slice of lime wedged in your bottle of Sol? The landlord at the Somerville knows why; in a hot climate the acid keeps the flies away from your lovely cold beer.

There are no flies on Deja Vu either as they deliver two stomping sets of jazz standards including a sultry Summertime, a luscious Misty and a cheeky Santa Baby. Vocalist Kat Pagett knows how to sell these tunes with expressive delivery and a light sprinkling of jazz scholarship while there's plenty of lively improv from the band riding on a clean, well-balanced groove.

The Somerville makes for a charming venue for this type of gig, cosy and friendly with a lively crowd, friendly staff and plenty of seating with a great view of the stage.
