On Sunday May 31st Princes Amongst Men@Upstairs At The Ritzy is proud to present the fabulous duo of King David & Countess Francesca. King David presents a unique blend of downhome blues and twangy surf-guitar. King David's taken his show to the USA and all over Europe, as well as regularly performing in London and all corners of the UK. He has appeared on BBC UK Radio shows including the John Peel, Mark Lammar, and Andy Kershaw shows. Countess Francesca plays double bass and specialises in bringing to life the rolling rhythms of classic Southern Blues. Together they will surely create a night to remember!

I should add that I came to know King David as part of Big Joe Louis' blues trio where he is a superb player. I've never seen him solo before so look forward to this .

As you know, event runs from 7.30 - 11pm in Brixton's Ritzy cinema's upstairs bar and is free entry. As always, it's great to see any of you lot there.

Just giving this a bump as it's on on Sunday - King David being perhaps best known for playing rhythm guitar in Big Joe Louis's magnificent trio. I guarantee rocking Americana!

And if you have not seen Mad Max yet then you could catch that then stumble upstairs, your vision and hearing ruined thru 2 hours of 3D B-movie extravaganza. Being the Ritzy it also might have Timbuktu on.

You say that as if it's a bad thing.

Hoping to make it on Sunday, if I'm not lured away by either Basekou Kouyate at the Scala, or making a late Sunday dinner for the Renton family (my roast spuds are the stuff of legend)
