Mecca Café and Roastery’s monthly night of live music is making a return.
Mecca Cafe and Roastery is dishing up sublime nights of music every month with the return of its Live at Mecca series. The first event, which showcased the talent of the Ben Adler Quartet, was a huge success as the concept brought together guests and performers in a relaxed and easy-going space.
Guests will once again be welcomed with a glass of sparkling on arrival before mezze plates loaded up with fire-roasted peppers, feta, olives, hummus and dukkah as well as pickled beets, piccalilli and Ibarra peppers are served and the music begins.
Live at Mecca’s return will see Claire Edwardes on the marimba and Nick Russoniello on the saxophone performing musical scores from Bach to Kats-Chernin.
Both are internationally acclaimed musicians with Claire being one of the driving forces of new music in Australia over the past two decades and Nick’s skill seeing him appear as a soloist with many, if not all, symphony orchestras in the country.
The first month of summer sees klezmer band CHUTNEY take to the Mecca floor and if you’re keen on fast solos. driving rhythms and sounds to make your toes tap, then this is one show you must see.
The members of CHUTNEY draw on their Eastern European and Middle Eastern heritage for hot, spicy and high-energy tunes ranging from folk to tango, gypsy jazz to indie rock, and classical to funk without ever skipping a beat.
Whether you’re a lover of klezmer or totally uninitiated, CHUTNEY is a dance-in-your-pants experience.
Although nothing is more affable than gathering around a table and sharing food, premium ticket holders will also be treated to a hot meal that they don’t need to share.
Premium ticket holders can choose from a tempura eggplant, house-cured salmon or slow-cooked beef cheek dish prepared on the night and served during the interval. It’s the perfect addition to your Sunday evening of live music if you need a heartier meal.
Exclusive to Fever, the Live at Mecca series of music concerts looks to wake us from our lockdown stupor and reunite us with live music, good food and wine with friends. Don’t miss out on these monthly sessions because they’re bound to be a good time.
Get down on Sunday and take a look at the upcoming Live at Mecca concerts below.
