JACK TYSON CHARLES @100 Wardour St What's not to like!
Jack Tyson Charles @ 100 Wardour St Tues 14th 2016
Well I was looking forward to this one. Jack has the kind of voice made to measure a Wardour Street Soho venue, and what a venue, although small dark and smokey as you might expect..it is certainly not.
100 Wardour Street is a very stylish place it has to be said, and credit due for supporting live music.
Jack was playing downstairs on a stage surrounded by dining tables. Clearly aimed at offering diners that extra something... I couldn't help wishing it was a small dark smokey club, but to be fair i would head there in a shot to eat.
The gig was intimate despite the size of the room and Jack has a way of drawing you in with his soulful voice that seems to sound as if it belongs with the greats. Yes it's that good.
"Taking it back" is always a standout track and didn't disappoint this time, along with "Wouldn't you know" and a cover of "I'm sorry miss Jackson whooo" with Jack giving his keyboard a workout in front of a very accomplished band who look and sound like they belong with the greats.. On the whole an enjoyable gig which deserved a larger audience, or a smaller club that's dark and smokey.... Got a full chat with Jack coming up, inlight of a much anticipated ALBUM. - Trust 😊 Do yourself a favour, listen to Jack singing "Taking it Back" below 😊
