We're excited to announce that the fabulous JUMP SEVEN are making their Cakewalk Café debut tonight (4th April)! These wonderful guys and gals will be bringing a bit of a change of pace to this Wednesday night, with a full on JIVE AND SWING repertoire a la the great LOUIS JORDAN!
It's dance music from the 40s and 50s... jazz before rock and roll. Swing with blues. Latin too! Music to have fun by.
After Duke Ellington and Count Basie, Louis Jordan was the most popular band leader of the late swing era and was known as 'King of The Juke Box' for his swinging, up-tempo, dance-oriented hybrid of jazz, blues and boogie-woogie.
The band will be doing a warm-up set at around 8pm upstairs, their main set downstairs at 9:30 AND hosting a late night jam session! Phew! Check out their website http://thejumpseven.co.uk, slick back your hair, and swing on down daddios!
£3 entry or FREE for those attending the dance class downstairs.
