Arriv­ing at Jazz Café on Sunday night was a great feel­ing as I’d been many times before and have really come to appre­ci­ate the his­tor­ic ven­ue. The Jazz Café in Cam­den is well known for play­ing top-notch live music 7 days a week, slap bang in the heart of Cam­den Town it is close to everything and always has a broad spec­trum of acts on in the week from gos­pel, elec­tro, house to RnB which of course is GRAMMY win­ning artist Mario Win­ans speciality.Mario achieved UK fame and wide­spread appeal with the num­ber one single ‘I Don’t Wanna Know’, which fam­ously sampled Fugees’ 1996 hit single “Ready or Not”. This event was one of many stops of Mario Win­ans UK tour, one of the smal­ler more intim­ate shows before he goes onto his next show at the 02 Isling­ton before fly­ing out to Aus­tralia to shut it down, down under.

The event was a com­plete suc­cess with a packed crowd of dare I say 90s babies, there was lovely ambi­ence, friendly vibes and drinks flow­ing from 2 bars. The night was kicked off by the soul­ful and enga­ging two­some that is NULA, com­prised of a tal­en­ted sing­er and con­tem­por­ary live per­cus­sion­ist. NULA made for a truly com­pli­ment­ary warm-up that gave the room shivers, def­in­itely one to watch, go to You­tube to check their hit new single “Mutu­al” out now!

By the time that Mario Win­ans hit the stage the energy was very high and the dance­floor was packed. Through­out the night he meandered through a mix of a his new tracks and old clas­sics like “I Don’t Wanna Know” which every­one in the crowd sang along too. There were magic­al moments where he dropped exclus­ive acapel­las live which the fans abso­lutely loved, it is exper­i­ences like this that make me feel that there will always be a clear place for live music even with the advent of OTT stream­ing and glob­al dis­tri­bu­tion.

In sum­mary it was a fant­ast­ic event with cur­ated tal­ent from USA and Lon­don, Mario did not cease to impress neither did his sup­port­ing act NULA, both of these acts I want to see on stage again soon.
