“CAFÉ BLEU” TOUR 2020
The Style Councillors celebrate “Café Bleu”, the seminal debut album by The Style Council.
The Style Councillors are the world’s one and only tribute to The Style Council. Formed in 2013 by Darren Fletcher (Paul Weller) and Steve Hayes (Mick Talbot), The Style Councillors have quickly built a loyal fanbase for the group which was Paul Weller’s home for the majority of the 1980’s and where he wrote some of his finest songs. Dani Clay (Dee C. Lee) and Craig Read (Steve White) are joined by the Bad Manners Horn Section and a stellar line up of musicians hell-bent on recreating the sound of The Style Council.
After the dissolution of The Jam in 1982, Paul Weller joined forces with Mick Talbot, formerly of The Merton Parkas, Dextys Midnight Runners and The Bureau, to form The Style Council. After a string of succesful singles released in 1983 such as ‘Speak Like a Child’, ‘Money-Go-Round’ & ‘Long Hot Summer’, The Style Council released their debut album ‘Café Bleu’ to universal acclaim in March 1984. ‘Café Bleu’ featured favourites such as ‘My Ever Changing Moods’, ‘You’re The Best Thing’, ‘Headstart for Happiness’ and more. The Style Councillors will be reprising the album in full along with a set of other classics by The Style Council.
