She had hair the colour of moonlight on topaz. And a mouth that would have sent Shakespeare thumbing through a thesaurus.

Gunmetal Blues is a hard-boiled detective yarn disguised as a lounge act...
or maybe it's the other way around. 
Live from the Red Eye Lounge, Buddy Toupee - piano player and tour guide - leads us on a voyage of mystery, murder and music as Sam Galahad searches for a missing blonde in a world of smoke and mirrors, shadows and shattered dreams. 

The murdered mogul, the missing heiress, the woman with a past, the crooked cop, the world-weary private eye – they’re all here and set to music that will have you humming along as you try to solve the mystery before the final bars end.

I love noir films - always have done.  This was a fun way to add a little 1940’s sensibility to our 40th Anniversary season. - Artistic Director Robert Metcalfe
