Friday 29th October - Saturday 30th October
Every Friday and Saturday night, following the second show, Ronnie Scott’s presents the Late Late Show, where some of the UK’s finest jazz talents take to the stage for a late night blowing session. We are changing the vibe with music that includes and is influenced by jazz-funk, soul, R&B and hip hop.
A DJ will augment the evening starting the night at 10.30pm until close. This weekend we have MIKE VITTI (Fri) and SIMONE MARIE (Sat).
Most tickets for the Late Late Show will be available at the door if advance tickets have sold out.
Line up: JIM KNIGHT alto sax; Al Cherry guitar ANDREW McKINNEY bass; PAT ILLINGWORTH drums
