Shameka Dwight to headline three-month residency at Q’s Bar & Lounge

The next resident act to hit the stage at Q’s Bar & Lounge has been announced, with the most recent act ending their stay in Dubai last Saturday (August 17).

The famous jazz lounge at Palazzo Versace Dubai in Al Jaddaf (and Time Out Dubai’s current Best Live Music Venue for 2019) has confirmed that funky and soulful singer and musician Shameka Dwight will be hitting the bar’s stage – backed by an all-female three-piece band.

Having performed alongside previous resident act David Davis earlier this year, Dwight will be stealing the spotlight for a three-month residency from Thursday August 22 through until Saturday November 2.

Fusing sounds of jazz, funk, soul, folk and pop, Dwight’s songs tackle topics of love, self-worth and struggle, with some smooth and uplifting beats along the way.

No Good At Love is her latest record, and you can check it out here:

“It absolutely makes my soul smile to have the lovely Shameka return to my Q’s Bar & Lounge again, but this time, she’ll be taking center stage,” said legendary composer and producer Quincy Jones, the man behind Q’s Bar & lounge, his first live music venue. “I’m also incredibly honoured to be welcoming her all-female band, and man, let me tell you...they can play! Keep on keepin’ on Dubai, and thank you for helping me welcome these talented artists night after night. Let’s keep the music playing.”

You’ll be able to catch Dwight and her all-female band playing five nights a week from Tuesday through until Saturday, with performances taking place between 9pm and 1am every day except Saturday, when they’ll take place an hour earlier from 8pm until midnight. A minimum spend of Dhs350 applies on Thursday and Friday – and table bookings are recommended.
Dhs350 (min. spend Thu-Fri). Performance times vary. Open Tue-Sat 7pm-2am. Palazzo Versace Dubai, Al Jaddaf (04 556 8865).
