Amy Winehouse's dad Mitch, Mark Ronson perform at tribute gig
Pair perform 'Back To Black' tracks at London's Jazz After Dark
Mitch, a taxi driver-turned jazz artist, sang from the crowd throughout the gig and also reportedly went up onstage for one number at London's Jazz After Dark club.
Performing with Winehouse's former bandmate Zalon Thompson, Ronson played tracks from 'Back To Black', the late singer's hit 2006 album which he co-produced with Salaam Remi.
The private gig, which was held at one of Amy's favourite nightspots, was attended by family and friends including Kelly Osbourne and broadcaster Nick Grimshaw.
A tabloid 'source' commented:
It was a really special and emotional night, the ultimate celebration of Amy's life for those closest to her.
The gig was Ronson second tribute gig to his "musical soulmate" in a week - he appeared onstage with 'Valerie' writer Dave McCabe from The Zutons at Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich the previous night (27).
Winehouse was found dead at her home in London on Saturday (July 23). A cause of death has yet to be confirmed.
