Home Cookin' - 2nd Sunday of every month
Thanks to the success of the launch night on the 9th December 2007, my Home Cookin' jazz session at Filthy MacNasty's is now going to run monthly on the 2nd Sunday of every month starting from Sunday 13th January.
We had a great night in December and I was really pleased with the appreciative crowd. The session takes place in the Lounge bar at the back of Filthy MacNasty's which has just the right atmosphere. There is space to dance as well as space to just sit back and relax over a drink or some delicious pie and mash. We got a really friendly and mixed crowd last time and everyone there had come especially for the session, so no need to worry about troublesome drunks etc.
I know that you will all be tired and skint after Xmas and New Year's Eve celebrations... but the good news is that admission to this night is going to remain absolutely FREE! Drinks are at pub prices too, so you've no excuse not to come down to hear some great music and socialise with like minded souls.
The night now kicks off at the earlier time of 5.30pm and finishes at 10.30pm (in time to catch the tube home)
As ever, the music policy is uptempo bebop, hard bop, soul jazz, Latin jazz, cool, funk and blues - all played on vinyl LPs, EPs and 45s.
Other than Shiftless Shuffle run by the Jazzcotech Dancers, there's no other regular jazz session like this on in London at the moment, so please come down and show your support if you can.
We also plan to showcase some great guest DJs and possibly live music in the coming months - so watch this space!
