A Deja Vu of Jazz
Led Zeppelin, Elvis Presley, Eric Clapton, Frank Sinatra and many Jazz classics filled the air on Friday night for the Dockers San Fransisco Evening of Jazz event held at Deja Vu. Vintage Media put on the event, and truly out did themselves with an impressive guest list, exciting decor and even roses for the ladies.
The musical talents of the night included Arif Buchara, from Dad’s Gratitude, on the Bass, Gerard Vanderloovin on the lead guitar and Hilary Furtado on the Saxophone. Since the 60’s and 70’s these three have been on the pop, rock and jazz scene of this country, and have come together for the first time in many years to play at this special event. This classic trio was joined on the drums by none other than Jason from the popular band Aaroh.
The crowd loved the retro flashback that the performers brought with them, and even though the start time was delayed till around 10, nobody much seemed to mind, as they all got what they came for. Since the moment the band started playing, the atmosphere lifted up and hands were clapping to the rhythms.
I really look forward to more events like this in Karachi, it really has the potential to bring out the art and culture of the city. Such events have the power to bring people together for a real night of enjoyment. This event is the first in a serious of coffee house musical performances over the next while in Pakistan.
