At the end of last year, Ronnie Scott’s launches a brand-new weekly show, All That Jazz! Saturday Cabaret Brunch at Ronnie’s, hosted by West End leading lady and 2020 Olivier award-winner, Cassidy Janson (Beautiful, Chess, & Juliet).
Tickets include a delicious 2 course brunch as well as two cocktails from Ronnie’s renowned cocktail list (think Mimosas, Bloody Marys, and more!)
Expect high energy show tunes, classic cabaret numbers, big belting ballads and jazz standards from the finest singers in town. Despite everything happening in the world right now, the show really must go on!
Cassidy’s hosting duties follows the success of her sold out, headline show at the club this year, and last year’s release of her debut solo ‘Cassidy’. Each week, Cassidy invites a special West End star, most of whom have been unable to perform since March, to join her for a musical theatre celebration.
Band: JEFF LEACH/ADAM DENNIS keys; STEVE PEARCE bass; ADAM GOLDSMITH guitar; NEAL WILKINSON drums

Nestled in the heart of Soho since 1959, the world-famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club has always stood shoulder to shoulder with its West End theatre-land neighbours. But it’s not just the location that binds the two. Musical theatre has long had a powerful affinity with jazz, from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess to John Kander’s Chicago, it has welcomed the swinging syncopation, the thrilling saxophones and hot brass that lend productions a certain razzle dazzle. Indeed, many of Ronnie’s regular performers play in the big shows around town.
Since the Covid-19 pandemic shows no signs of loosening its grip on the world of entertainment and most theatres remain closed, Ronnie Scott’s will honour this historical relationship between jazz and musical theatre.
