The band will have Alberto Mendez Vega, Alejandro Gonzalez and George Morfitis on vocals, by George Morfitis on piano, Costas Challoumas on bass, Alejandro Gonzalez on congas, Constandinos Paouros on timbales and drums, and Mike Michael on trumpet, and will give a much-appreciated refreshment to the club’s usual music scene.
The club will then host Cyprus-based jazz band Mood Indigo. The band formed by Armenian-Cypriot bass player Greg Makamian and
Canadian-Cypriot vocalist Irene Day and Armenian-Cypriot bassist Greg Makamian founded the band, playing American jazz standards. Joining them are Charis Ioannou on the saxophone, Ioannis Vafeas on drums and Marios Toubas on the piano.
