A night to remember

My friend Fred had a spare ticket to a gig at Koko last night to see Gabby Young and other animals. I had not really heard of her before but I had a feeling she might put on a good show.
It was an amazing show and the atmosphere was electric. The energy and soaring vocals mixed with style all of her own, a world of make believe with 1920s style dancers, circus acrobatics, brass bands choirs, musicians. The music was beautiful but never boring and her voice was totally mesmerizing.

Gabby had a change of dress half way through, The first dress below was sculpted, cocoon like, her look is vintage glamor mixed with an outer worldly creation. In the venture it self they had little cute stalls with vintage and remade creations on offer.

Her second dress in the picture was by Inbar Spector it was stunning, in pale green sheer fabric with an origami like texture. She and her band were truely amazing, we danced and danced and when she finished we clapped until our hands hurt!
