JAVA NITES (article first published : 2003-04-21)

Rhumbelow Theatre will host Java Nites with Alan Bowen, Paul Botha, Liz Cunningham and Richard Ellis from May 9 to 11.

Java Nites offers a retro evening of Latin Jazz and some cool swing performed by the cast of Full Circle who played at the Rhumbelow in August last year. They will be joined by well-known percussionist Richard Ellis. Now adding piano to the line-up, they promise an evening of highly energetic original compositions and some popular favourites. The numbers have been given the contagious syncopated Latin treatment.

Alan and Paul have played in numerous productions over many years and have two CD's of original music to their credit. Last year Alan appeared in the shows Cabaret Conversations and Leopard Skin and performed as session electric bassist on various CD projects. Paul is a corporate man by day but by passion a musician who has accompanied many Durban artists and is equally at home on piano and acoustic guitar.

She has performed in many musical productions, corporate theatre as well as cabaret. Richard runs the Drum Circle at the BAT Centre and is a member of the acclaimed percussion group Interitmo.
