TIM PENN & THE SECOND LINE
With two previous sold-out Sunday appearances at Upstairs at Ronnie’s, Tim Penn & The Second Line have firmly established their reputation as one of the top New Orleans R&B outfits playing around London. If you like Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, Dr John, Allen Toussaint, The Neville Brothers, mixed in with an occasional old school Jelly Roll Morton - then this is one band you won’t want to miss. In Tim’s own words “This is the blues, but with a great big smile on its face”.
"These guys are amazing!! Their popularity and presence grow with each gig they do for us. Not surprising with the exceptional level of talent, commitment and all round positive energy they bring to every performance" The Ram Jam Club at The Grey Horse, Kingston
Here’s a clip from their last performance at Ronnie’s Bar
The Cosimo Matassa Project
The Cosimo Matassa Project are a collective of musicians in London, UK, working to conjure up the unique rhythm ‘n’ blues flavours that emerged from New Orleans in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Tonight they are appearing as a trio with core members, singer and double bassist, Dai Price (Dai & The Ramblers) and drummer Roy Pfeffer (The Big Smoke Family), joined by top pianist Dave O’Brien. They’re often joined by guest musicians from London’s rhythm ‘n’ blues scene and rumour has it that that may well happen tonight! Over the last couple of years the band have become a staple on the R’n’B circuit, gigging around London clubs and bars such as Nightjar in Old Street, Brasserie Zedel in Mayfair and Ronnie Scott’s in Soho.
The entire project is born out of respect for the artists who passed through Cosimo Matassa’s studios, a real love for the music and a desire to summon up the sheer joy that pervades all of Cosimo’s recordings. Playing tunes by well-known artists from that era such as Fats Domino and Big Joe Turner, the band also like to unearth lesser-known gems by the likes of Clarence ‘Frogman’ Henry, Dave Bartholomew and Tami Lynn, as well as throwing in a few of their original songs.
"Like James Hunter before him, frontman Dai Price is a man to watch." Phil Alexander (Mojo magazine)
