Ronnie’s has had a strong musical relationship with Cuba since presenting the explosive Cuban group Irakere in the eighties. Over three decades, the annual invasion of top Cuban bands at the club became synonymous with ‘the sound of summer!’
‘Viva Cuba’ is our celebration of Cuba, its rich culture and its music. For over 12 years, Friday nights in our upstairs bar have featured the best London-based Cuban bands including Son Yambu, Eliane Correa & La Evolucion and Havana Latin Fun. Sadly this has not happened since Friday 13th March 2020.
Ronnie’s is delighted to present a much anticipated two-night Cuban extravaganza, as we open the doors in the main room to two superb Latin bands: Sarabanda led by pianist Sara McGuiness; and bassist Jesus Cutino’s band, plus a wealth of special guests, and much respected Latin DJs Rich Fallon and Gavin Durrant.
Whilst we will have to imagine the whiff of Cohiba cigars, you will upon arrival receive a Ronnie Scott’s Mojito. We live in hope that the significant ‘Governmental road-map’ date of 19th July will herald a regained era of freedom to mingle and shake whatever one shakes to some incredible music!
