Pop on a frock, dress dapper and enjoy their swing music
The first time I saw Laique, I was introduced to them by a swing-dancing friend of mine. They were performing at the Wunderbar, part of Brisbane Festival, a couple of years ago. They call themselves "One frock and four suits!" and performed at Black Bear Lodge recently as part of a double-bill with Mzaza.

Laique are Kylie Southwell on vocals and banjo, Samuel Vincent on double bass, Gerard Mapstone on guitar and banjo and Will Eager on drums, and call their music swing / folk / pop. It was a glam Sunday night; the band was dressed old-school, and there was lots of lovely ladies in frocks and dapper-dressed gentlemen. The band performed tracks from their debut album Cravin Just a little Misbehavin including Icarus Falling, a finalist in the World Music Category of the Queensland Music Awards and The End of the Day, finalist in the Jazz Music Category of the Queensland Music Award. No mean feat for a band to have tracks included in the finals of two different categories.

After playing for a fabulous forty minute set, Laique's CDs sold like hot cakes at the merchandise stand, and Kylie Southwell joined Mzaza for a song during their set.
