The exclusive Grand Opening opened its doors to an enthralling performance by artist Sandi Thom who began with a series of classic jazz songs on the grand piano followed by contemporary pieces on the guitar and harmonica until midnight. Guests were served themed cocktails, canapés and sharing platters, which was designed to be reminiscent of renowned jazz lounges in New Orleans. Sandi Thom, a Scottish born singer, has been active in the music scene since 2004. She is renowned for her sensational voice, having graduated from the Liverpool School of Performing Arts. Persistent to chase after her musical dream, she made her way to the international music scene and has performed live to sold out concerts across the world. Her songs have peaked at No. 1 in Australia for 12 weeks. Sandi then proceeded to start a record label, Guardian Angel Records. Her voice is said to have the “oomph of Joan Osbourne”. She has appeared on the same stage as the King of Blues himself, BB. King, and has toured Europe with Guitar Virtuoso, Joe Bonamassa!
This renowned artist is taking up a weekly residence at The Domain’s newly launched Privé Jazz Lounge every Friday night. She will be performing some of her own songs, along with renditions of blues, soul and jazz classics. Sandi says “ This has gotten off to an exhilarating start and I’m excited to partner with The Domain Hotel and Spa to launch the Privé Jazz Lounge. To be performing on a local stage playing the songs I grew up with and that have had such a huge influence on me; is wonderful to allow me to connect with the people of Bahrain and visitors to this beautiful island that I now call home.”
