An evening of live Jazz & Tropical Pop Music @ Sheba Restaurant

Exotic Night at Sheba’s

The distant sound of acoustic guitars invaded the sidewalk; as we stepped into the small vestibule of Sheba’s, we were submerged by the unequivocal musical trademark of none other than our talented Jacky Ambroise and his group Strings.

It was a night of flamenco tropical, spiced with Haitian flavor, during which even the most bashful found themselves swaying to this stirring rhythm; such, so well mastered by Jacky and his colleagues, in a style second to none.

After setting the crowd ablaze for nearly two hours, it was time to give way to a more subtle, yet equally vibrant sound. Indeed, the moment had arrived to yield the limelight to Mushy Widmaier, who would bring us a delightful hour of jazz. Teamed with his brother, Joel, the pair knew no limits: melody after melody they revived our most dormant musical senses. With the interpretation of a few selections from his latest CD “My Love”, Mushy virtually led some of us to a jazz euphoria, hard to put into words…undoubtedly scrumptious, to say the least!

Determined to end the soirée with a bang, Strings once more took the stage and enchanted us with its music. With a mixture of joy and nostalgia, a former member of the original group, Philippe Augustin, joined them on the podium; this, to many, brought back tremendous reminiscences. Through his base guitar, he spouted profusely harmonic responses to the distinctive notes of Jacky’s own, ultimately making this event “a night to remember”.

Alas, as all good things must come to an end, thus came time to say farewell…to Jacky, Mushy, Joel, and their support group…to our friends and acquaintances…until granted the privilege to meet again for another exciting night!
