Zealot's Heart Gin presents The Joplin Parnell Trio

We're delighted to present an evening of free live music and delicious reduced price cocktails courtesy of Zealot’s Heart Gin.

Created by Brewdog, this proprietary gin is made from scratch in a unique triple-bubble still. The extreme copper contact delivers uncompromising character and flavour:

“We are fanatical about our botanicals; citrus, pepper and spice. Only the worthy botanicals are selected. But ultimately, it's in juniper we trust. The beating heart of a gin made by zealots, for zealots.”

Joplin Parnell is a prominent pianist and vocalist on London’s Jazz and Blues scene. He has lived a life immersed in music having started out at an early age following his piano playing father around New Orleans parades, jam sessions and bars, snare drum in hand.

His sets weave a rich tapestry of New Orleans Rhythm & Blues and Brazilian Choro, New York Stride and French Musette with a Tango or two thrown in for good measure. His music draws influence from the full breadth of his musical heritage and imparting a deep soulful sensibility onto everything he does.

Fred Snow & The Bootleg Trio

The Bootleg Trio is fronted by the illustrious Fred Snow.

Showman, Composer, Artist-Provocateur. Often found loitering in High Society weddings, Shanghai award ceremonies, exclusive gatherings & street festivals in Brazil. Fred Snow has earned his place in the glinting spires of Britain’s independent music scene - that ethereal castle in the mythic Bohemian otherworld.

Born in 1976 and named after the great Freddy Mercury, which he continues to honour. His journey started in the USA, where he absorbed both the Squirrel Nut Zippers & The Violent Femmes during the mid ‘90s. Adding to Weill, Guthrie, Waits, Dietrich, Bowie, Brel, Neil Young, Agnes Bernelle, 3 Mustaphas 3, Kid Creole, Queen, The Velvet Underground - all are claimed as fonts of scant reverence. Solo performances to re-inventing the Old Style with The Top Shelf Band & Le Bistrotet, or the Avant-Garde of The Bootleg Trio & New Bohemian Orchestra, writing, recording & appearing live is just the half of it. Fred Snow has gone on to deliver original material for soundtracks on TV, adverts & even appearing in an oscar winning movie performing his own music. Starting his Record Label & Music Publishing arm brought additional challenges and responsibilities, becoming an advocate within London’s independent scene through his membership of AIM, PRS & MPA.

Fred Snow’s accomplishments have resulted in opportunities to cross 6 different continents, his live act having been booked to appear alongside such luminaries as Camille O’Sullivan, Paul O’Grady, Le Gateau Chocolat, Tankus the Henge, Urban Voodoo Machine, Paloma Faith, Kid Creole, Lana Del Rey, Jessie J., Brian Ferry, the Buena Vista Social Club as well as Nile Rogers & Chic!

“The Gothic Gatsby of the Indy Scene!” (The Candlelight Club)

“Impeccable tunes are served up with obscene lyrics, a diabolic mash-up of Terry-Thomas and Al Bowlly.  (Ben Chu, The Independent Newspaper)

“Like Terry Thomas meeting the Jim Jones Revue… Not for the feint hearted!” (Soho House)

“Whatever keeps Fred Snow off the stage is a great victory for social reformers, but a dreadful loss to London.” (The Erotic Review)

“The House Band for Oriole & Nightjar in London.” (Drinks Magazine Asia)

The Fallen Heros

9:00 PM21:00

The Fallen Heros

Brothers Ben Martyn and Emile Martyn spent their formative years living in New Orleans surrounded by world class musicians from the New Orleans music world.

Emile spent 10 years living and working in New Orleans with some of the top musicians in the world in this line of music. He’d been playing on Bourbon St with his Godfather Harold Dejan and also been working with Fats Domino’s side men when they weren’t on the road. He often played, and still does, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage festival.

While riding to work across a Swiss mountain on a snowcat with trumpeter Paul Bonner who he’d just met.  Paul said he wanted to form a band in London playing contemporary New Orleans style music. A month later the Fallen Heroes were born. Emile persuaded his brother Ben to join on vocals and bass. Ben came more from the rhythm ‘n’ blues side of town and had been working with his own band as guitarist, pianist and singer both in the U.S and in London.

The collective idea, between the three of them, was to stay close to the roots of New Orleans music, both old and new, and combine it with the sounds and experiences of living back in London. 

The band, collectively or with other projects, play such events as the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage festival, BBC’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, London’s Camden Roundhouse, private functions for the queen, the list goes on. The band are now based in London but play all over the world.

+Late set from 23:30 Cover will be charged at £4 for guests staying on and £5 on the door.

Hot Club of Jupiter

Hot Club of Jupiter

The Hot Club of Jupiter was formed to provide the music for the 2013 Renault Clio online ad campaign, which was promptly judged too lewd for public consumption and withdrawn. The band, however, lives on playing their unique mix of gypsy swing, hot jazz and songs of middle—class angst and caddish behaviour.

Intrepid adventurer violinist Kit Massey has performed all over the globe, playing with the Santiago Philamonia, Chile and studying Karnatic violin traditions in Mysore, India.

Christian Miller is a much sort-after exponent of French and American guitar styles often headhunted by visiting international bandleaders.

The rhythm section of Rory Dempsey (double bass) and Matt French (drums) are veterans of many west end shows but are occasionally allowed to emerge from the sub-terrain darkness of the orchestral pit to lend their infectious swing and uncanny musical telepathy to the Hot Club of Jupiter’s sound..

His clarinet playing is not only influenced by Goodman, but also the fiery intent of Edmond Hall, while his Tenor Saxophone approach is inspired by the great Lester Young.

An evening with Metaxa and Explorer Laura Bingham

Ready for an adventure? Always planned to cycle across South America, but never quite got around to it? Well this special evening brought to you in collaboration with Metaxa and Laura Bingham is for you.

Created by Spyros Metaxa in Greece in 1888, Metaxa was initially compared to a cognac, later to a brandy, and is now known as the Original Greek Spirit - a one-of-a-kind amber spirit.

Iconic British explorer Laura Bingham shares the brand's sense of adventure. We’re delighted to host an evening where Laura will share stories and anecdotes from her extensive travels; from cycling all over South America to completing the first decent of the Essequibo river in Guyana by kayak.

The talk starts at 7pm (run time 40 mins), followed by a short Q&A. Tickets are £10 and guests will receive a Metaxa welcome drink and canapé on arrival. We expect this to book out very quickly, so don’t delay and book your place today!

Throughout the night, we will serve a special menu of reduced priced cocktails featuring the brand. At 9pm, thanks to the support of the brand, there will be free live music from the Yur Yesli Trio.

Joplin Parnell

Joplin Parnell is a prominent pianist and vocalist on London’s Jazz and Blues scene. He has lived a life immersed in music having started out at an early age following his piano playing father around New Orleans parades, jam sessions and bars, snare drum in hand. Whereas, days at home were spent receiving a musical education in the back of his mother's audio engineering studio, watching her cut records and listening with keen ears. His sets weave a rich tapestry of New Orleans Rhythm & Blues and Brazilian Choro, New York Stride and French Musette with a Tango or two thrown in for good measure. His music draws influence from the full breadth of his musical heritage and imparting a deep soulful sensibility onto everything he does .

Boneshaker

The Boneshaker conjure up a heady cocktail of razzamatazz jazz from the roaring 20s and beyond with exotic rhythms from the Latin quarter, tangos, salsas and mambos.  French chanson rubs shoulders with the Weimar Cabaret while film noir soundtracks mingle with the Klezmer-esque and the quaintly curious confections of the golden age of jazz. The Boneshaker features thrilling three part harmonies, virtuoso romantic violin, soaring sax and clarinet accompanied by a swinging rhythm section featuring vintage percussion to create an inimitable musical and visual Boneshaker event.

Take a look at the Boneshaker in action, playing “Swain”.

+ 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.
