Every last Monday of the month we gather the finest musicians we can find and throw them together in a barrier busting night of contemporary music.
Doors 7pm, with DJs in the bar.
John Laws Congregation
John Law's Congregation featuring James Mainwaring, Ashley John Long and Billy Weir
Ed Jones Quartet
Formed in the aftermath of the divisive 2016 European Union referendum, this is an experimental supergroup that brings together several of Britain and Europe’s most adventurous musicians. Exploring themes of race, identity and sexuality, Collective X delivers a strong socio-political and cultural message framed by a tapestry of avant-garde jazz, blues, electric funk and acoustic roots music.
