“Maria Walsh and Carole Nelson have musical talent to burn… They specialise in a blend of smooth jazz, cocktail lounge soul and funk that’s infused with dance-come-electronica textures and rhythms – topped with lithe and enchanting vocals. These diverse elements are melded, and duly stamped with the unique Zrazy signature, it is one hell of a brew… the work of a class act” – Hot Press
“Glorious free-spirited jazz'” – Irish Times
“They take their audiences on a roller coast ride of music that is downright soulful and sexy”  – Time Out, London
Friday 26th April @ 8pm (Doors 7pm) Tickets €16/€14

Floor lamp? Check. Big suit? Check. A tape they’d like to play? Check. Come and watch as the band blast through all sixteen of the songs from the film, including classics like “Psycho Killer”, “Once in a Lifetime”, “Burning Down the House” and “This Must Be the Place”.
