What people are saying about Joan As Police Woman

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hugely under-rated singer songwriter - Great evening at a small venue At almost exactly 9, Joan and her 3 band members came onto the tiny stage. They started with Wonderful (which is, in my opinion) and then worked through a mixture of tracks from 'Damned Devotion' (the latest, and excellent, album), including "Tell Me", "Warning Bell" and "What Was It Like" and back catalogue material such as "Eternal Flame", "Human Condition" and "The Silence". Throughout the performance, Joan chatted with the crowd and her bandmates and some time of the full set was undoubtedly lost, so there was barely a moment before they returned for the inevitable encore. This included the excellent "The Magic" and ended on a slow paced version of Prince's "Kiss" (The most covered song of the last 30 years?). Sadly, my last train was 11:15, so I had to leave part way through this (promised to be the last song), but the performance had been excellent. I was glad to have seen Joan perform with a band. I'd been mightily impressed with her at Rough Trade, but ultimately I guess I just prefer the sound of a full band and the songs were more familiar in this form, too. The venue was, I suspect, perfect for them. Joan commented that this sort of venue was their favourite and the set was moodily lit throughout, with plenty of smoke giving the atmosphere, but thankfully not the noxious fumes, of a smokey jazz club from the '70s, helped by Joan's gold lame jumpsuit and glittery eye shadow. It was though, stiflingly warm - I dread to think what it would have been like a couple of weeks earlier in 30C+ heat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Joan Genius! Second JAPW gig I attended this year following the release of her superlative Damned Devotion album (my favourite of the year to date). This gig, as Joan herself made reference to, was a very different atmosphere to the Festival Hall performance in April, but the less formal intimacy of O'meara suited the band's laid-back soul-pop style perfectly. Joan acknowledged how important her 'family' of musicians are to her and the sound they create is testament to their cohesion as a unit and often breath-taking! When Joan veered from the minimal electronic precision of several of DD's excellent tracks (e.g. Wonderful, Tell Me, Warning Bell) to slightly more prog-ish 'wig-outs' of tracks like Steed, it felt like the band were about to lose control and take off! Ironically, although I prefer the aforementioned songs on the new album best in their recorded form, I would welcome this more unshackled, Joan-let-loose approach for a full performance next time as these songs gave a whole other dimension to the band and Joan's songwriting skill. Joan Wasser - you are on another plane - and you take us there whenever you hit the stage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Performance! Joan Wasser is one of the best singer songwriters around and at this gig she delivered all of her soulful torch songs from her new l.p Damned Devotion with style and class. Backed by an amazing band she made for an atmospheric evening with witty audience banter in between the songs. Go see her!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant as usual! We went to this event with friends who enjoyed it as much as we did. It’s always a bit awkward recommending music to others but Joan and the band didn’t let us down. Lovely venue too - Royal Festival Hall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gig I went to this gig with no real expectations but it was excellent. The band were tight and extremely talented and Joan’s voice is amazing. She played a lot of stuff off her new album which I hadn’t heard before but it was very catchy and quite eclectic. She also has a great sense of humour and had a great rapport with the audience.
