Description

Francesca Mondi and her band are back with more spellbinding jazz-spired originals alongside latin and swinging jams at The Islington on the 12th of September.

After raving reviews at the launch of Francesca's debut EP 'Devils Door' back in April, the band is coming to The Islington to open for the Canadian country-soul singer Tami Neilson. The night promises to be lively throwback to times gone by with soulful voices from across the globe bringing jazz, bossa, country and rockabilly.

HINT: Get your name on the Francesca Mondi Guestlist through eventbrite before 12pm the day of the show for £5 entrance (to be paid at the door) + free shot.

It's £15 for those not on the guestlist so SIGN UP!


Music:

Francesca's originals are a throwback to trad jazz and blues with an alternative and modern edge. She uses vocal harmonies and divisive progressions to create songs which are at once reminiscent of a 1930s swing band with touches of psychedelic rock.

"Mondi’s deep and soulful voice moves the songs on from their traditional form, and unusual arrangements with a fantastic backing band captivating the crowd... A highlight is the title track Devil’s Door with its swing rhythm, fantastic horn section and brilliant backing singers supplementing Mondi’s smooth vocals... Break My Heart would not sound out of place during Mardi Gras in New Orleans." (Ralph Blackburn, Hackney Gazette)
