Bruno Heinen Writes...

Starting on the 5th of March, I am starting a Tuesday jazz night with the help of Alex Merritt and Andrea Di Biase at the Shaftesbury Tavern in Crouch Hill, N19. We have got some great acts booked for the first eight weeks.

The thinking behind the night was to give a platform to great musicians that might not play in other circumstances. I.e: foreign musicians: Ben Kraef, Antonio FuscoStefano Carbonelli and Francesco Bigoni or younger up and coming musicians like Miguel Girodi and Dave Ingamells. We also wanted to do some unusual programming like the trumpet and drums duo on 9th April and the solo bass set on 30th of course alongside bands that we admire and want to promote

The night will take place in the Shaftesbury's beautiful ballroom next to an open fire. The pub has a piano, delicious food, great beers and is located close to Archway tube/Crouch Hill overground station or is on the 210 (from Finsbury Park), 91 (from Kings Cross), or 41 bus routes.

All gigs start at 8:30pm with a £5 entry.
