We’re excited to bring you a night of free live music and discounted cocktails, thanks to our friends at Martini!
Music will be led by Ewan Bleach - a clarinetist, saxophonist, pianist and singer specialising in 1920s and 30s jazz and blues. Ewan runs a couple of regular London jazz nights -the Cakewalk Cafe at Passing Clouds and the Golden Era of Jazz at the Jamboree. He regularly visits New Orleans for inspiration and has toured in France with the renowned New Orleans street band Tuba Skinny.
He currently works as a clarinetist with several London jazz bands including Man Overboard, The Basin Street Brawlers, The Dakota Jim band and The Old Hat Jazz Band. Ewan has a large repertoire of rare old songs ranging from the rough raggy blues songs of the 20s to the rich luscious ballads of the early 40s; referencing artists such as Billie Holiday, Al Bowlly, Bessie Smith and Jimmie Rodgers.
As a result of the generous support of Martini, we are also able to offer a special menu of vodka cocktails at reduced prices featuring the brand all night long, with free live music.
