The Margie Lou Dyer Trio plays at Claypots, 215 Barkly Street. St Kilda on Sunday nights at 9.00pm. Phone: 9534 1282.
The Trio consists of Margie Lou, piano and vocals; Allan Browne, drums; and Cam Robbins, clarinet. (I believe that Cam maybe overseas at the moment and that Julien Wilson could be depping for him.)
For an idea of the Claypots ambience, here the Trio gives “On The Sunny Side of the Street” a working over, with a famous sit in, US tenor saxophonist/teacher George Garzone duelling with Cam Robbins on clarinet. Wonderful stuff!
Can’t guarantee this level of programming every Sunday night, but the raw excitement and the virtuosity are always there.
