About Adriana

Singer
London
Her airy and soft vocals evoque the era of the jazz divas. It is a sensual and elegant performance of jazz, soul and latin music.

Adriana Blu started her music career in Spain when she was just sixteen. From music competitions she quickly jumped to live stages singing jazz standards with some of the best musicians from North Spain and Cuba. She became lead singer of Santander Jazz Big Band and she was main singer and dancer in the self-produced musical "Jazzmovie" with Orlando Peláez, one of the best dancers and choreographers in Spain. She set up her band Adriana Blu & The Sugars with cuban, venezuelan and flamenco musicians and they recorded two albums with some original songs and soul and jazz covers. They opened the show in the Festival Segovia where artists like Chano Dominguez or Martirio were performing as well. Her colorful and sensual voice has captivated audiences from Spain and UK and together with her latin touch and spiritual background it is a unique performance to see.

The communication before our event was spot on - Jose is very responsive and was willing to answer all my questions very quickly. The band were super professional, excellent quality and very flexible (my timings went awry and they played some filler before the first set so my guests weren't mingling in silence) I would highly recommend!!

The Burning Shoes were an absolute delight to hire. Contact and confirmation was prompt and friendly - they booked in with no trouble and arranged a special set to suit the needs of our unusual audience. On the night, the band performed spectacularly, and held our crowd's attention, filling up the festival's biggest venue and getting everyone moving and singing along. We received loads of positive feedback from guests and staff about the quality of the music and the entertainment factor of the show. I would definitely hire the Burning Shoes again - and would recommend them to anyone looking for a lively covers band to really make an impact at your event.

We hired the band for a wedding celebration in our garden. Jose made the booking process very easy and he was very careful to make sure we had the right kind of mix of instruments and singer to suit us. He sent a long and varied list of song choices. Requests were also encouraged. On the day the band were professional in every way from setting up to performing a whole beautiful range of songs. There was something to suit everyone. We loved Lee Gold’s voice (and amazing keyboard skills - how I would love to be able to do that!). Harrison Cole’s jazz trumpet was smooth and cool all through, not forgetting the great bass Kevin Glasgow and the fabulous rhythm house that is Jose Sacristan. This band had just the right mix for us of jazzy, cool music while our guests wanted to eat and talk, but could turn up the volume and liven up the beat at just the right time for some dancing. Plus the band were such lovely guys - friendly and warm and had a great rapport with our guests. We have had great feedback from our guests about how great the band were. I can thoroughly recommend booking this band. Amanda Parker
