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.
Most tickets for the Late Late Show will be available at the door if advance tickets have sold out.

‘A Fusion of Funk RnB - Groove-based interplay’
Project PH is a group of musicians brought together by former session bassist Yolanda Charles. Awarded an MBE for services to music in 2020, she has had a long career working with artists such as Hans Zimmer, Squeeze, BB King, Dave Stewart, Mick Jagger, Robbie Williams and Paul Weller.
Yolanda’s band Project PH features the skills of the dynamic and exciting Laurie Lowe on drums, Australian Kim Murray offers a display of vibrant sound-crafting and compelling soloing as lead guitarist. The band sound is complemented by the excellent Hamish Balfour on Keyboards/synth/piano. The emotive and compelling voice of Paris Ruel completes the line up bringing the band’s skillfully crafted songs to life.
This band expresses their uniquely original sound with tightly choreographed detail, often unpredictably performed, signalling accents or arrangement changes with a nod or glance. The scope for interplay and connection is wide and allows the musicians room to ‘breathe’. No two shows are ever the same. In Project PH there is to be found a mix of beautiful ballads, heavy funk instrumental tracks and modern RnB influenced soulful tunes.
