Ronnie Scott’s 60th Anniversary Street Party
July 20 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
You’re invited to celebrate Ronnie Scott’s landmark 60th Anniversary Street Party. The street party takes place on Saturday 20th July from 12 noon until 6pm on Frith Street in Soho, and plays host to outdoor live music from some amazing artists.
Entrance to the street party is completely free with no advance booking required, and revellers can expect to enjoy outdoor bars, champagne cocktails and street food from the likes of Hoppers and Little Italy.
The confirmed line-up includes hotly anticipated performances from legendary saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis and his Funk Assembly, leading light of the nu-jazz scene in London Nubya Garcia, the seven-piece Latin jazz band Eliane & La Evolucion and children’s jazz group Kinetika Bloco.
In 1959, saxophonist Ronnie Scott opened the door to a small basement club in London’s West End where local musicians could jam. Today, in its new home in buzzing Soho, Ronnie Scott’s is one of the world’s most famous jazz clubs attracting full to bursting audiences practically every night. Since the early days of Sarah Vaughn, Count Basie and Miles Davis, the club continues to present the biggest names in jazz including Wynton Marsalis, Cassandra Wilson and Kurt Elling, all of whom shun the concert halls in favour of the intimate and welcoming environs of the club. Ronnie Scott’s is also a club firmly on the cutting edge; the first place to catch hotly-tipped rising stars, visionary artists and the next big thing.
Ronnie Scott’s is at 47 Frith Street, London W1D 4HT.
