Live music in Santander, December 2014

My last few days in Santander were a bit hectic. Too many Christmas lunches and other commitments, no time to write. Now I am back to Gran Canaria, trying to get as much sun as I can before returning to Cantabria in January. Here are the highlights of the first three weeks of December.

  • 3 December: Javier Vercher Trio @ Rubicón, Calle del Sol 4
      Featuring Javier Vercher (sax), Deejay Foster (double bass) and Roberto Gatto (drums). I would have enjoyed it even more if not for a tall bloke who insisted on dancing in front of everybody and obscuring the view of the musicians, especially of Mr. Gatto. Listen buddy, whoever you are: it’s not nice, and your dancing sucks.
  • 5 December: Los Zapata @ Taberna La Solía, Liaño de Villaescusa
      50s, 60s and 70s standards (with the band members also in their fifties, sixties and probably seventies), from Elvis to The Beatles and Roy Orbison. No surprises here, but still: good stuff (and very decent food) in a vintage motorbike-themed pub.
  • 7 December: BRUUT! @ El Almacén de Little Bobby, Calle del Sol 20

  • 10 December: Flamenco Tablao @ Rubicón
      A warm and crowded evening of flamenco toque, canto and baile.

  • 12 December: Christian Escoude Quartet & Lew Tabackin @ Salón de actos de la Fundación Botín, Pedrueca 1
      Featuring Christian Escoudé (guitar), Jean-Baptiste Laya (guitar), Thomas Bramerie (double bass), Bruno Ziarelli (drums) and Lew Tabackin (tenor sax, flute).
  • 18 December: El Tumbao @ El Cazurro, Playa de La Arnía, Liencres
See you next year!
