Jean Masters remains one of consistent female live show performers on the local showbiz scene.
While most female musicians stage shows on rare occasions, Jean rotates around venues in the capital almost every weekend.
Tonight she takes her act to Bar Rouge where she usually performs on Saturdays. For this week, she has shifted her slot to tonight to replace Jabavu Drive that has another assignment.
Jabavu Drive usually performs at Bar Rouge every Friday and Jean has had Saturday slots.
Bar officials said they are convinced that Jean Masters will do justice to the Jabavu Drive slot because she has proved to be a force to reckon with.
She also does many copyright tracks and patrons that usually attend Jabavu Drive sessions will get renditions of their favourite hits through Jean’s soothing voice.
Bar Rouge manager Spencer Sahumani said they are confident that moving Jean’s slot to tonight will give their patrons a different feel of Friday night.
He said Jabavu Drive will be back to its usual slot next week.
“It is likely to be an interesting switch. Jean usually performs on Saturdays and she has popularised her slot. We know her capacity and we are glad to have her coming with her style to the Friday night slot,” said Sahumani.
“She is one of energetic female performers that have graced our stage and we encourage people to come and feel her vibe. She has brought many new patrons since she started performing here and she has a fascinating following.”Jean said she will have fun with patrons and has prepared a great act for the night.
“We always do our best and we promise more surprises at the show because we are working on new sets for our choreography. We are working on a new project, so we have introduced many acts that will spice up our performance,” said Jean.
“The band is always excited to perform at Bar Rouge because of the great environment at the place. It is a place for executives and it is one of the best upmarket venues in town.”
Bar Rouge has become popular with mature music followers as it brings various artistes to perform to complement the good set up in the joint and its good food. Patrons will enjoy good music in a good environment while enjoying good food and their favourite beverages.
