Danny Tsun @ Cat and Fiddle Hotel

Dynamic Danny does it again!

This lil pocket rocket fired up the crowd, who braved Sydneys atrocious rainy weather last night to come together and hear Danny and his band perform some awesome covers in the heart of Sydneys pub culture at Balmains Cat and Fiddle Hotel with an explosive setlist and some rather cool talented guest appearances.

And what a stellar guestlist...

We could not help recognise the familar voice and face of Robert Susz of the Dynamic Hepnotics/Mighty Reapers playing a mean harmonica alongside Danny to a few from his set. Gail Page from 'The Voice' was a super addition as back up vocalist, as was Pat Powel of Melbournes Ska Orchestra who added his deep soulful sound to the band. Sally King even stepped up and added her brand of vocal magic to a superb rendition of Stevie Wonders 'Superstition'. What a fantastic evening. Everyone was in the mood to dance and be taken on a trip back in time listening to their faves, downing a few warming nips of their fave drop.

The venue Cat and Fiddle is a cozy pub with an eclectic entertainment area tucked away boasting its own bar, seating and facilities with an ample stage area and more than enough room to shake your boootay. The main bars theme and decor includes an interesting twist of vintage meets urban with evidence of footy fever memorabilia and objets d'art hung on its walls and chalked in bright colours on blackboards... a modern day digital jukebox hangs mid-wall but even that looks vintage.

A photo opportunity with Robert Susz presented itself as we were leaving and he was happily accomodating. It took several goes to get him focused, due to distractions, but in the end we got the shot LOL! I welcomed the extra pics.
