From Australia’s Soul Capital comes two of Melbourne’s outstanding vocalists, Fulton Street's Shannen Wick and jazz, soul, rhythm and blues extraordinaire, Vanessa Fernandez, bringing a mix of old, new and original soul to The Night Cat on Friday, September 8th, 2017
Breathing life into their favourite old school vinyl records by some of the all-time great soul and jazz legends, Shannen and Vanessa perform together, live-on-stage, accompanied by some of Melbourne’s hottest soul performers including Saskwatch's keyboardist, Olaf Scott and saxophonist, Sam Boon.  

Like a vinyl record, original, authentic, rich and beautiful, Shannen and Vanessa’s voices will meld together contemporary and traditional music to breathe new life into old, new and original soul.
