Event Details

Hot on the heels of their newly released album, Lost and Found at the Clermont LoungeThe Bonaventure Quartet return to Red Light Café. You might want to grab tickets now — their last two shows at RLC sold out pretty damn quick...

 

The Bonaventure Quartet at Red Light CaféWhat do you get when you combine the gypsy-jazz stylings of Django Reinhardt and the torchy-twangy mezzo delivery of Patsy Cline with a rowdy troupe of Romani-esque instrumentalists? The only correct answer would be The Bonaventure Quartet, an Atlanta-based confederation founded at the turn of the millennium by guitarist/composer Charles Williams.

The Bonaventure part of the group's moniker seems inclusive enough when considering the range of territory covered by the BVQ: le jazz hot and cool, Broadway show tunes, Latin noir, folk ballads, sea shanties, and the occasional twinge of rock 'n' roll. Actually, the name refers to the street on which Williams lived for 20 years in a house just a few table dances away from the Clermont Lounge. Williams' observations of the comings and goings at Atlanta's iconic strip joint inspired most of the 15 tracks on Lost and Found at the Clermont Lounge. The music and the stories that each song tells resonate with the polished seductiveness of front woman Amy Pike's soothing voice, regardless of whether you've ever spotted a celebrity at the Clermont or watched Blondie crush a beer can between her breasts.

The BVQ's previous release, The Secret Seduction of the Grand Pompadour, slots into the concept album category with its loosely themed songs about an eccentric bon vivant. Lost and Found at the Clermont Lounge sharpens the strategy by depicting an artist's melancholic life in a series of lyrical vignettes, which rarely have been rendered with such sweetly scented ardor and empathetic candor.

— Doug DeLoach, from "Bonaventure Quartet gets Lost and Found"
