Beatrix Players live review - Green Note, London
Venue: Green Note, London
The big city finally takes notice of the Beatrix Players
The Beatrix Players met through the equivalent of a dating site for bands, but today they’re polyamorous. The three-piece line-up – Jess Kennedy (piano, vocals), Amy Birks (vocals, drum pad) and Amanda Alvarez (cello) – have been expanded with double bass, violin and French horn. This evening’s venue usually specialises in the quieter side of music. Their website states: “Sticks are always too loud at Green Note. Please make sure that you bring either hot rods or brushes to play with.” Tonight, however, the venue is filled to the brim with the band’s enveloping sound.
