Jazz Up Thursdays with Parsimonious Monk & The Delegates

Parsimonious Monk   7PM

Dominic Bates band Parsimonious Monk 9:30PM

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.”

The Delegates 9:30PM

The Delegates formed in 2012 and have since grown a large following both online, receiving over 25,000 views on their youtube page, and on the London music scene. Formed of young musicians from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the Royal Academy of Music, we’ll be playing soul, pop and disco classics as well as some of our favourite covers from our YouTube Channel! We’ll also be showcasing incredible vocal talent as we’re joined by the special guests Eliza Carrick-Davies and Eloise Lamb for a night of exciting funk and groovy soul!
