Grey Goose presents The Shirt Tail Trio

Thanks to the kind sponsorship of Grey Goose we present a night of cocktails & swing with The Shirt Tail Trio.

Performing tonight as a trio, this London-based band are bringing swing music back into the mainstream with their own suave and raucous stamp.

On the night we will be offering a delicious menu of expertly mixed Grey Goose cocktails at happy prices.

Pinstripe Suit

Pinstripe Suit is a high-octane six-piece swing and vocal jazz ensemble run by London-based jazz singer/pianist Robin Phillips. The band includes both female and male vocals and a super tight two-piece brass section.

Featuring original arrangements by Robin, this energetic ensemble specialises in classic swing music from across the 20th century as well as the high-energy swing revival music of the 1990s, as featured in films such as ‘Swingers’ and ‘The Mask’.

+ LATE SET

Pinstripe will also be playing a Late Set from 11.30. Cover will be charged at £4 for guests staying on and £5 on the door.

The Boneshaker

9:00 pm21:00

The Boneshaker

The Boneshaker conjure up a heady cocktail of vintage jazz, razzamatazz and beyond from the Latin social clubs of Cuba and Argentina with their salsas, tangos and mambos.  One moment dark and moody, the next romantic and bubbly. Summed up in the lines,"There may be trouble ahead...let’s face the music and dance". Music of a decadent and illicit affair played on honking sax and clarinet, dazzling violin, clattering percussion, bass and resonating guitar.

+ Late Set

The band will also be playing a Late Set from 11:30pm. Cover will be charged at £4 for guests staying on and £5 on the door.
