5th March Hoxton Jam night

Last weeks House band consisted of
Michel Castellanos on drums
Mike Rowlands on alto
Dominic Ntoumos on trumpet
Samer Sharawi on bass
Alexis Kraniou on guitar

Michel also brought his friend Osca who is a great Cuban percussionist. which meant we had a nice texture of sound for the house band set.
During the jam Francesco also brought down a new london hand made bass constructed by Anaconda Bases, a company which recently was showcasing its new products at The London Bas Guitar show.
Finally it was a pleasure to have Sedik at the Hoxton Jam who was celebrating his birthday.

Looking forward to seeing you all next week !
