May 21st – The Filthy Six – 6.30pm
Just look at this bunch of reprobates! Only come to this gig if you like dirty jazz grooves, filthy funk, evil beats and so on. The Filthy Six has played with some of the biggest names in music including Amy Winehouse, Jack White, Mark Ronson, The Foo Fighters, Robbie Williams and Duran Duran. Expect a thrilling night of authentic soul jazz, with horns, guitar and organ. This one is likely to sell out fast, so book tickets here.
