The first item on the list is to organise ‘live sessions‘ right here at The Garden Slug. As some of you might know, we already built a solid, wooden stage for such a purpose. The plan is to have live music performances every fortnight from February.
We kick-started it with the whimsical, spontaneous, acoustic duo “Mae & Jude” on Valentine’s Day eve and V-Day to serenade them lovebirds.
13th Feb was a lively, somewhat rowdy set with many a goosebump-inducing love dedication and some rather unusual song requests… Like the cup song (a.k.a. “When I’m Gone”)… which Mae sportingly agreed to perform a capella, and she did so beautifully might we add, with one of our plastic cups. Ya.. one of the audience members asked us to pass Mae a plastic cup… -_-” Naughty, rite?
14th Feb was more mellow, with love song dedications and a more relaxed ambience. When they messed up, they made jokes about it and there was great audience interaction and laughter all around.
We love how Mae & Jude change up The Cranberries, Lady Gaga and Foster The People songs into something soothing and chill, befitting the occasion. Jude’s easygoing guitar and Mae’s warm timbre also effortlessly revive Ella Fitzgerald and Frankie Valli with a contemporary spin.
So, we’re bringing Mae & Jude back on Fri, 27 Feb 2015. The fun starts at 8pm and we hope to see you here. Book your seats early!
Just two musicians different as Night and Day, with small steps and big dreams. We love old school jazz, alternative rock, indie pop and blues, so enjoy our whimsical blend of music!
Love, Mae & Jude
