Re: show at Sounds of Leslieville (Beaches Jazz)

“The Achromatics followed with an eclectic set, featuring interesting covers such as The Spice Girls’ ‘‘Stop’‘ and ‘‘Turn the Beat Around’‘ which is a disco era song first performed by Vicki Sue Robinson and brought back to popularity decades later by Cuban superstar Gloria Estefan. The Achromatics got political with an anti colonialism song about Montezuma which featured a chilling introduction of flute and percussion and keyboards reminiscent of the late Ray Manzarek of The Doors. The Achromatics are releasing an album this fall and played several originals, showing that this band has a very promising future and I am eager to keep warm this fall with their hot music once their album is launched.”
