THE NEAR JAZZ EXPERIENCE
We invited our friend Terry Edwards to curate an evening of some of his favourite East London artists. Join us for an evening to remember including –
A DJ set by the icon that is Rhoda Dakar, lead singer of The Bodysnatchers, doyenne of the 2 Tone record label
Transatlantic duo BAG Dan Allison (London, UK) and Jody DeSchutter (BC, Canada) weave vibrant sonics and vivid poetry into and around each other to create an outline of the slippery worlds that can’t be defined by standard labels or performance.
Darren Hayman – a thoughtful, concise and detailed songwriter who eschews the big, the bright and the loud for the small, twisted and lost. For 15 years, and over 14 albums, Hayman has taken a singular and erratic route through England’s tired and heartbroken underbelly.“bold and unique” The Sunday Times
“Hayman has hit a creative purple patch… a treat” Mojo “uniquely intimate and very satisfying” BBC
Headlined by the east London jazz legends that are The NJE – a trio so called because their wayward style of jazz has a punk leaning to it. The NJE are Madness bassist Mark Bedford, multi-instrumentalist Terry Edwards (who has played with the Blockheads and P J Harvey) and Simon Charterton.
