We are delighted to welcome Earl Okin to the Spectrum Jazz Lounge for what promises to be an outstanding afternoon cabaret performance with this musical genius! His one man show is one hot gig and it's sure to be a highlight of the Festival Programme.
Earl Okin is one of those rare performers….. a true original!!! Genuinely versatile, his talents range from that of a fine Singer-Songwriter, (in styles ranging from chart orientated tracks to the classiest of Jazz-Standards, via authentic Bossa-Novas), to that of Pianist, Guitarist, world class Jazz-Singer, as well as his unique standing as ’ Vocal Trumpeter, Trombonist and Clarinetist’.
Added to all of this is his humour, sophisticated and witty enough to have made him perhaps the leading music & comedy act on the unforgiving London Alternative Comedy Circuit! Apart from appearances on British shows too numerous to mention, Earl has appeared at all the major London venues including The Royal Albert Hall, The Royal Festival Hall, The London Palladium, Wembley Arena, The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane and The Barbican.
Earl has appeared alongside everyone from Paul McCartney and Van Morrison to Benny Carter, Stephane Grappelli and Cleo Laine. He has entertained the Queen and Princess Margaret. Finally his one man show has made his name a legend at the amazing Edinburgh International Festival and venues literally around the world. He has been described as a cross between Harry Connick Jr. and Victor Borge, but there is really only one…EARL OKIN!
Earl takes to the stage at 3pm in the Spectrum Jazz Lounge on Saturday. Come along early and grab yourself a drink or one of our platters and prepare to be truly entertained!
The festival will be in full swing after Earl Okin’s gig. Why not stay on and enjoy Clare Teal at Lamb House?
