    So, you’re standing in front of the mirror, making sure your favourite bikini still fits or checking out the beginning of your 2017 beach-bod. “Where shall I go for Easter?” you ask yourself. Gouna? Sokhna? How about Dahab? Maybe you’ll do something a little bit different and go to Alexandria.

    But then, BAM! You realise you’re not getting your commission from work in time. BAM! Your mama drops a bombshell by insisting that you go visit your Auntie Sawsan during Easter because she’s been ill. BAM! [Insert other earth-shattering revelations here].

    Calm down – the summer is still young and there will be plenty of opportunities to kid yourself about that bikini still fitting. As has been the case for the last – well, for as long as we remember – Cairo Jazz Club is swooping in, saving the day and picking up the shattered pieces of the long weekend getaway that could have been.

    funk-offFunk OFF are back at The Jazz on Thursday 13th

    Yes, the Home of Live Music has dipped into its Rolodex of talent and put in the call for a special Easter Music Feast that will see three nights of the city’s finest musical talent taking to the stage. Things begin on Thursday 13th with a double-whammy of live music that includes the always funky Funk OFF, as well as Bluezophrenia – a band whose return to CJC has been long overdue.

    On Friday 14th, things take a turn for the electronic with two guys we don’t get to see share a stage all too often anymore, Misty & Hafez. Things then switch back to live music Saturday 15th, with folksy Alexandrian outfit, Sorour, opening a night that will be headlined by one of the country’s most underrated bands, fusion rockers Code Masr.

    Speaking of DJ duos – that was two paragraphs back, btw – the closing night on Monday 17th sees one of the local scene’s hottest twosomes and former Student DJ winners, Aguizi & Fahim, perform.

    And so in the end, maybe the Auntie Sawsan trip is a blessing in disguise. You have three nights of musical madness awaiting at CJC. And there’s the whole bikini thing, too.
