Music and photography: Whinnie Williams at Hoxton Square Bar, London

Sometimes live music is simple, carefree and fun. You don’t always want to be challenged, sometimes you just want to kick back and enjoy the moment; a band letting loose and sharing their stories.  On Friday night at Hoxton Square Bar, Whinnie Williams provided just that, an enjoyable moment of carefree, retro styled fun.

I boogied down to Trouble and had a minor sing-a-long to their cover of Destiny’s Child’s Bills, Bills, Bills.  Even got a little sentimental when she threw in a slow jam.  It was just the vibe you wanted for a Friday evening.  A time to forget about the stresses of work, a global recession (that seems to be recovering for some but not for the masses), and the darn soaking wet British winter, Ms. Williams provided the perfect antidote.  The retro soul-pop vibe fused with a sprinkle of Gen-Y mischief makes for lighthearted fun.  And even when it all gets serious on the aforementioned slow jam, it is all delivered with a warming smile before returning to d00wop dances.

An enjoyable, warm and quirky little gig.  Thoroughly enjoyed seeing Whinnie Williams and looking forward to hearing a bit (well a lot) more.
