We are hyped to launch our huge series of events to cel­eb­rate our birth­day in June, cap­ping what has been an incred­ible couple of years of live music in our intim­ate sur­round­ings. These sev­en shows per­fectly demon­strate the wide vari­ety of music­al styles we are proud to have show­cased since our reopen­ing in May 2016.

Join­ing us for our week of cel­eb­ra­tions, we have Yas­mine Ham­dan with her fusion of Middle-East­ern jazz, legendary afrobeat col­lect­ive Orchestre Poly Rhythmo, Vels Trio and Laura Misch rep­res­ent­ing the bub­bling UK jazz scene, as well as Kidkanevil present­ing The Nujabes Exper­i­ence for the hip hop heads.

Round­ing up our epic week of shows we’ve got two very spe­cial club nights: DJ Maseo of icon­ic hip hop group De La Soul returns after his massive sell-out show earli­er this year; whilst Dami­ano Von Erck­ert and Route 8 bring our week-long cel­eb­ra­tion to a close with a night of house and disco.

It has been an incred­ible few years for The Jazz Café, with the likes of Tom Misch, Prin­cess Nokia, Shabaka Hutch­ings, Moses Boyd, Mulatu Astatke, Ata Kak, Roy Ayers, Nubya Gar­cia, Orches­tra Baobab, Sun Ra, Yazz Ahmed, The Roots, Roy Har­grove, Billy Cobham, Nilufer Yan­ya and Jordan Rakei all gra­cing our stage. And with the UK jazz scene exper­i­en­cing a massive resur­gence of late, to have played host to some of the names who are break­ing through has been a com­plete hon­our.

 Our Night Thing and Soul City club nights every Fri­day and Sat­urday have gone from strength to strength. Hold­ing things down in the booth we’ve had Dego, Awe­some Tapes From Africa, Acid Arab, Red Greg, Nick The Record, Romare, Jam­ie 3:26, Andres and Gilles Peterson to name a few.

 We’ve also had long-stand­ing col­lab­or­a­tions with Rhythm Sec­tion and NTS Radio, as well as new part­ner­ships with Gal-dem, Jazz FM and Bal­amii which we are delighted to present over the next year.

The jour­ney con­tin­ues and we’re really excited about what the future holds, for full list­ings on what we’ve got com­ing up head to our web­site.

Tick­ets are on sale now for all of our birth­day events, don’t miss out.
