Kansas Smitty’s New Year’s Eve Party @ Dean Street
Thurs 31 Dec 2015
£85 (including Three Course Meal and A Glass of Bubbly)
Over the past three years, Kansas Smitty’s
has become a name synonymous with good music and real people. In addition to being in demand at London’s finest clubs (PizzaExpress, Ronnie Scotts, 606 Club), the South and East London band of jazz-addicted twenty-somethings are proprietors of their own bar on Broadway Market.
This New Year’s Eve
, Smitty’s Big Four brings together a special edition of the sell-out Basement Tapes
that they host weekly at their own place. These weekly nights provide the platform for the band to shake up their normal repertoire and thus create a wholly unique sound. This singular approach to holiday standards, new originals, and jazz classics will have people out of their seats on the up tunes and into loving arms on the slow ones. You’ll hear the sounds of New York, New Orleans, Paris, and Havana in their sour mash of jazz genres.
Smitty’s musicians are young and hungry virtuosos whose musical flights are more like athletic miracles than practice room exercises. Jazz with grit. You’ve never seen another band like this one because it doesn’t exist. Of course we won’t expect you to take our word for it...
