A sold out show (sorry, folks!) always grabs my attention as it doesn't happen all that often in this hard to market to city. I, in fact, saw this eclectic duo perform live last year and they are well worth the price of admission, which is quite low in this case. They got together on a whim, vocalist Beatrice Bonifassi and drummer/composer Jean-Phi Goncalves, and it seems to be working out in all respects.
Betty and Jean-Phi have recently released an album and are now playing sold-out shows. Betty has been on a hot streak lately having performed with DJ Champion and done some vocals on the Oscar winning soundtrack, The Triplettes de Belleville. She has a unique quality to her voice, so much so that Jean-Phi searched her out to work together. Jean-Phi is not a nobody as he has worked with Lauryn Hill and Ariane Moffatt. Together they are amazing. Full of haunting vocals and phat beats they won't disappoint.
This general admission show is for all ages.
