a night to remember with a real life legend –
A rock’n’Rollercoaster journey through a life lived hell-for-leather…'through my eyes'
The original rock’n’roll chick Suzi Quatro has been writing poetry all her life but no-one’s heard it - till now! Her autobiography ‘Unzipped’ told of the music, the glamour, rock’n’roll sex and dressing room brawls; in ‘Through My Eyes’ Suzi takes us deeper under the catsuit, candidly revealing a soul-searcher bedevilled by the trials of life while kicking ass all over the world. With stories that transport you to moments in time in her legendary 50 million record-selling career, this poetry captures the essence of Suzi Quatro - through her eyes…
Suzi is joined by two of London's finest spoken word performers:
SALENA GODDEN – 'THE DOYENNE OF THE SPOKEN WORD SCENE
...the ‘doyenne of the spoken word scene’ whose electrifying live performances have earned her a devoted following. She is the author of the collection ‘Fishing in the Aftermath’: and the memoir Springfield Road. Tonight she will knock you out with her stylish verses, performing some of her favourite poems alongside new material.
LONDON LAUREATE – LAURIE BOLGER
This ‘London Laureate’ is presenter of ‘Bang Said The Gun’, London’s leading stand up night for poets, and one of the finest herself. She performs her unique style to audiences across the UK, on TV and radio. Tonight she will rock it with some of her hilarious, down-to-earth poems from her recently published collection ‘Box Rooms’
RHYTHM & BLUES WITH THE WATERBOATMEN
Suzi will be followed by a fantastic band playing Rhythm & Blues tunes infused with other musical brews from the cream of London’s musicians Jonathan Gentleman-Lee, Errol Linton, Lance Rose and David Wilson
This will be a night to remember!!!
