earl okin - black box 2017

Earl Okin to play Black Box, Belfast

Renowned for his vocal-trumpet solos, Earl Okin is regarded as one of the most accomplished Bossa Nova artistes outside Brazil.

Having worked with some of the biggest names of the 1960s, including Wings and Van Morrison, and written songs for the likes of Cilla Black and Bing Crosby, this is a fantastic opportunity to discover one of Britain’s best kept secrets.

His latest album Musical Genius and Sex Symbol features his own dry and hilarious songs alongside inspired versions of contemporary hits including a bossa nova version of Wheatus’ ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ and a Nat King Cole version of Coldplay’s ‘Yellow’.

Earl plays the Black Box on Sunday 17th September.
