BREWERS CREW

Brewer Crew .jpg

A brand new Jazz funk outfit featuring some of the top Jazz/ Funk/ Session players in the UK. Together they have developed a tight, distinctive, funky jazz sound with a contemporary twist. 

The band was conceived by well known and highly rated alto / soprano saxophonist Christian Brewer and features the extraordinary talents of legendary guitarist Jim Mullen. Famous for his Jazz funk band Morrissey Mullen that dominated the UK scene in the 80's. 

Keyboardist /pianist Mike Gorman is a high profile jazz and session musician on the UK scene having worked with Incognito,Van Morrison, Boy George.

The backbone of the band features the rock solid Bass and Drums team of Ernie McKone and Crispin Taylor. These two heavyweights are highly renowned, and between them have played and toured with people such as Galliano, Paul Weller, Seal, Zero 7, The Funk Brothers, Marva Whitney, The Blockheads, Carleen Anderson and a veritable who's who of the UK's Soul and Funk scene.

Brewers Crew have recently supported Incognito for a sold out week at Ronnie Scott's to a rapturous reception.

KAT & CO

Smokey nightclub blues with a contemporary twist. Kat & Co are an eclectic quintet that share stories and sounds of ordinary cosmopolitan life. And with family traditions rooted in the cotton fields of rural Tennessee, Kathleen Pearson (lead vocals) is the real deal. It was in the heart of London that she went looking for Blues of the 21st Century.

SUNDAY 04 FEB

JAZZ JAM

With its new home on the first Sunday of the month,...  Come to watch, come to play, come to drink...

What is the Jazz Jam?

The Jazz Jam is a session led by a great house band, where musicians and singers come to try out material, play old classics and sit in with other players. 

Who is it for?

It is for everyone. Half of the crowd come to play, half come to just watch. It's the sort of gig where you don't know what's coming next. 

What's the vibe?

It's a relaxed Sunday afternoon feel, very friendly and a chance to see some great music up close, often with musical combinations and improvisations that you will never see again.

If you are lucky...

....you might even see Perry's jazz dancers who stop in every now and then, clear some tables, and hit the floor.
