We are back next Wednesday and Alexis is looking to book a special guest on drums so don’t miss out!

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
