Review: Q’s Bar

Flying in from the US, David Davis has been handpicked by Quincy himself to hold a residency in the iconic jazz club, so understandably we’ve high hopes.

The host hotel is awe-inducing in its bright, artistic flair, but we feel a world away from that once we step inside the dim, sultry bar within. The creative, colourful glamour transforms from the walls surrounding to the stage itself, the commanding talent of David and the band captivates the audience with ease.

The small bar is decked with dark leather seats facing the stage and the candle lit tables are packed with couples and groups of varying ages; but everyone’s jiving, clapping, clicking and even singing along as the new act and co. do their thing.

Their energy is high as they perform covers such as Lovely Day, Rock With You and Ordinary People (with David and the backing singer breaking into dance at times). But David beguiles the music lovers equally as he performs original tracks – each preluded with a backstory that gives the show depth and brings the room closer together.

While the songs and tempo change throughout the evening, one thing remains constant; the smiles beaming around the room. Not just a crowning live music haunt, but one of the best night outs we’ve had in a long time.
