Our first Jam of 2014 was Busy !

Last Wednesday was really busy and really hot.. unfortunately we think the air conditioning stopped working.
Alexis was left to manage the night on his own and booked a killer half Italian line up which consisted of Luca Faraone on bass, Alessio Barelli on drums and Marcin Geborek on sax.

We had some great guests including musicians who have played for Paloma faith, Professor Green, Blue and Tinie Tempah
