Black Gardenia featuring Daphne Roubini
Frankie's Jazz Club
“Transporting listeners back to a time of martinis, lounge suits, and hazy cigarette smoke… the fact that Roubini’s originals are indistinguishable among the stacked line-up is the biggest compliment of all” —Georgia Straight
Jazz meets Americana in a different kind of vintage band. Blending reinterpreted classics with vintage-inspired originals, the band’s sound proves that cool is always classy and noir can be the norm. “Daphne Roubini’s original tunes bring to mind Django Reinhardt’s Gypsy Jazz with Billie Holiday as vocalist” (Vancouver Sun).
With Daphne Roubini voice/ukulele, Paul Pigat guitar, Andrew Smith guitar/ukulele, Brent Gubbels double bass, Chris Davis trumpet, and Cameron Wilson violin.
