Jamiroquai – Live at the Jazz Cafe

27 October, 2006


 The funky Jamiroquai in action

Jamiroquai is an amazing band and it’s name is known all around the UK for chart hits, but Jay-Kay is far more then just a successful artist. From his unusual name you can safely say this guy has style, and the first couple of albums he put out were a great fusion of funk, soul and acid jazz. Recently BBC Electric Proms held an exclusive performance at the legendary Jazz Cafe in London, which I’m sad to say I didn’t attend…Luckily we live in the Internet age and so you can stream the video performance.

Jay Kay was over the moon to be back at a venue he hadn’t played since 1992. He clearly had a deep affection for the place that had helped break him into stardom all those years ago. He repeatedly told the crowd how much fun he was having and attempted, with limited success, to tell jokes and entertain the crowd with amusing stories in-between songs.

But it was the music that really won the crowd over as he played a greatest hits set, including “Virtual Insanity”, and finishing with “Emergency On Planet Earth”.
