FRIDAY NIGHT WITH JUSTIN WHYTE


LIVE FROM 9PM EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT

Justin Whyte returns to Laika after a couple of trips to Egypt, a stint at Sotano, Hilton Southwarf, writing and producing in the Northern Rivers NSW near Byron and a new solo album due out at the end of the year. This multi-instrumentalist musical chameleon is predictably unpredictable. Think New York jazz piano bar meets intimate European club/cosy lounge room that then transforms into a pumping New York Night/House club depending on the night, stopping off in Vegas, Cuba and New Orleans along the way. The energy of the room at its peak is buzzing electric. With the smoky velvet voice, mad piano skills and phrasing that is impossible to pin down. Drawing from his extensive experience in Jazz, Blues, House, Latin Jazz, Salsa, Funk, ambient and time honoured classics, Justin very much enjoys doing the smoky jazz thing or whipping his audiences into a frenzy with a classic disco thumper.  Either way he loves to set different moods and you may feel like you’re in another place in another time…Don’t miss this amazing artist at Laika Bar
