Kiki Dee and Carmelo Luggeri - (Published or amended 2019-09-24)
Saturday, 26th October 2019
Port Eliot Presents is proud to bring you a wonderful night with Kiki Dee and Carmelo Luggeri.
Their partnership started out as just another studio day for producer and guitarist, Carmelo Luggeri - until pop legend Kiki Dee came in to put down a vocal …. He’d seen her many times on TV, but once she started singing, he was just blown away by the amazing tone of her unmistakeable voice. Little did he suspect that, from that day on, his musical career was to change forever.
Carmelo admits: That was the day he got us to turn left. And now, 25 years on from that epiphany, the synergy between the two has blossomed, firmly establishing them as one of the UK's great musical pairings.
2018 saw a year of musical consolidation for the popular duo – Bob Harris wanted them as opening act for the re-booted Whistle Test, and indeed this turned out to be a seminal moment, leading to long overdue recognition and critical acclaim.
As well as K&C compositions and Carmelo’s beautiful acoustic arrangements of obligatory Kiki songs, sublime numbers by great artists are sprinkled into their concerts to great effect. Harry Manx, Leonard Cohen, Kate Bush and Lowell George are welcome additions to a KC setlist - with even a bit of Depeche Mode and Frank Sinatra thrown in for good measure.
