Avalon presents the Friday Supper Club. Join us for Live Music, Dinner or Supper & Classic Cocktails, every Friday night. This week, Kees Steen will provide the music-to-dine-to.
Kees is a Dutch-Australian singer, guitarist, composer and songwriter. He started his career in music by performing in rock, pop and blues bands in his teens but his early fascination with jazz, fostered by his parents’ vinyl records collection, led him to Sydney to study jazz at the Conservatorium. Thereafter he spent many years accompanying vocalists and soloists both in Australia and the Netherlands.
At the same time he was composing and songwriting, drawing on all the music that has influenced him over the years. Trips overseas have affirmed his love of the music of Spain, Cuba and South America.
At his performances expect a mixture of original songs, jazz and latin standards and Spanish guitar music all presented through the medium of improvisation and spontaneity.
Kees will be joined by local bassist David Clayton.
