Caro Emerald (The BIC, Bournemouth – 11/12/15) ★★★★★

By: editor

Everything about a Caro Emerald gig is cool. Although it may have been a dark and cold December evening you were transported to a Caribbean island as soon as you stepped foot into the BIC. Caro appeared in the middle of the audience spot lighted and singing ‘The Other Woman’.  Next came ‘Riviera Life’,  palm trees and bright lights filled the backdrop behind the singer in her brightly coloured top, A-line skirt and sparkly shoes.

‘Quicksand’ had the audience participating, singing with one word and got the timing wrong every time much to the delight of ourselves.

The tempo of the gig continually changed and songs like ‘That Man’ had us all admiring Caro’s six-piece band and taking in the sass of the mum-of-one.

The six piece band were certainly multi-talented, singing, dancing and playing more than one instrument, they mainly played trumpet, guitar, piano, bass cello, percussionist(drums), sax and all had their own personal spot light section, but I have never seen a sax playing Mohican.

The high heels are kicked off for ‘The Lipstick On His Collar’.

“Just imagine waking up in a different city every morning – that’s what I do every day. It’s great fun but when you’re travelling you need to pack and it needs to be a very expensive suitcase!” she jokes, before jumping in to ‘Pack It Up Louie’. In this tune we are treated to a rather handsome trumpet player giving us a solo and using the megaphone to accompany Caro’s vocals.

For me the highlight was a cover of Meghan Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’ – which was super sassy, cool and ultra-sexy. Caro hits spots off Meghan.

Caro Emerald rocked Bournemouth and everyone went home with a smile and a warm feeling inside,  a fantastic show 5 out of 5 stars
