Wed 15th-Thur16th: ROSS STANLEY TRIO feat. ROSS STANLEY keys AL CHERRY guitar IAN THOMAS drums
One of the most in demand musicians in the UK, the genial talents of Ross Stanley on any keyboard instrument is a sheer delight.
Ross is one of the UK's top jazz pianists - constantly in demand for his flowing creative and lyrical playing. His soloing is profoundly steeped in complex harmonic tension and release but always serves the music and is universally revered by both fellow musicians and the wider listening public alike.
Ross Stanley began having piano lessons at the age of 4. At the age of 13, he was awarded an organ scholarship to Marlborough College. Upon leaving Marlborough, Ross was invited to study for his music degree at several renowned institutions including Trinity College of Music, Guildhall School of Music and a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in the USA. However, he decided to stay in London and completed a BMUS in classical and jazz piano at Guildhall in 2004. Since leaving, Ross's musical skills have kept him in high demand, seeing him playing with jazz names such as Will Vinson, Dennis Rollins, Guy Barker, Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll, Stan Sulzman, SteveArguelles, John Paracelli, Bobby Wellins, Clark Tracey as well as being a regular member of the Jim Mullen Organ trio and the Jaqui Dankworth Band and performing in many small and large ensembles - including Nostalgia 77 Octet and The Heritage Orchestra.
From Monday to Saturday and following the main act, Ronnie Scott’s presents UK’s finest talents in the Late Late Show. A late night ‘blowing session’ where invited guests and musical celebrities such as Stevie Wonder, Esperanza Spalding, Marcus Miller, Robert Glasper, Lady Gaga, Christian Scott etc who happen to be in town are showcased – you never know who might drop by! Doors 11pm (weekdays) & 1am (weekends).

ROYAL ORGAN DUO feat. ADRIAN MEEHAN drums RICH MILNER organ
Since being unable to accept knighthoods back in 2008 due to a gig commitment at The Murderer’s Arms in London’s Shepherds Bush on the same day, The Royal Organ Duo have earned their non-existent titles entertaining folks all over the United Kingdom, Europe and United States of America, in venues ranging from prestigious hangouts like the Groucho and Soho House, to numerous dodgy discotheques, retirement homes and good old fashioned back street boozers.
Originally formed back in 2001, the Duo starting worked for Her Royal Highness The Queen of England, providing the music and general vibe at Royal Functions within Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, and Sandringham and sailed the high sea's as the house band on the QE2. This allowed them to establish a large repertoire of funk/lounge based psychedelic covers and build up a celebrity packed fan-base. At one point they became so well known in the Upper Class circles that Her Majesty The Queen approached them with an offer of appearing on the front of new twenty pound note (£20 Sterling)- a true honour, but one that the duo yet again missed out on as they were away backing up for a well-known soul legend in America.
Able to entertain anyone from any walk of life, the duo are now performing for the normal people as their decade on higher ground came to an end. They have been seen reveling at top public events such as Camp Bestival, House of Vans, Edinburgh Festival, Clapham Grand as well as impressing corporate types at Not On The High Street and House of Vans. With everyone from Robbie Williams to Morcheeba, James Morrison to The Cuban Brothers on their session credentials, you’re guaranteed a party fit for royalty.
