Critically acclaimed Clement Regert's Wild Card is a melting-pot of musical ideas, fusing urban rhythms, Hard-bop and grooves with latin and jazz attitude.
For tonight’s show they have a stellar line up which comprises of special guests Trevor Mires(Incognito, Jamiroquai...) and fiery Alto saxophonist, Jim Knight (Ceelo Green, London's horns) backed up by the core Organ trio of Sophie Alloway on Drums, Andy Noble on Hammond Organ and French guitarist/band leader Clement Regert.
Latin Songstress Graciela Rodriguez will also sing a couple of tunes that night.
You can expect to hear their famous mix of Afro-jazz, Hard-bop, Samba and raw funk numbers.
