Jazz Up Thursdays with Parsimonious Monk 7pm, Tom Ollendorff 9:30pm

Parsimonious Monk   7PM

Formed out of the Hoxton jazz workshop scene, Parsimonious Monk are a septet who love jazz in all its guises from the angular bop of Thelonious Monk through the more rhythm and blues-orientated Blue Note style of the 60s to the funk grooves of the 70s and beyond. 
”Our variety of repertoire means we’re not only for the jazz purists but for anyone who likes a thumping groove and a roaring horn section – we try to mix things up a bit too.     
Our live sound has been honed over multiple performances in diverse venues from pubs to canal barges and even via participation in all-nighter jazz-poetry jams. 
It’s true we’re parsimonious by name, but certainly not when it comes to the entertainment.”
