Mambista – Fri 26th February

February 26, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

We’re back on Fri 26th February!!! 

Our Mambista nights are a totally fabulous way to groove the night away – and we always have loads planned for the fourth Friday of the month in the warm embrace of the Portico Gallery.

The evening kicks off again with a Salsa dance class at 7pm to loosen up those limbs and get boogie-ing!

At 8pm Gerry Lyseight picks up the mood with DJ duties on either side of live music.  This month we’re loving the return of Jazz Carib – with their rootical mix of jazz, reggae and ska.

We were always going to get Jazz Carib back after their wonderful September session but as their drummer extraordinaire, Kenrick Rowe, is going off on tour with PJ Harvey soon we’ve brought them forward to February 26th. Alongside Kenrick we’ll have Bammi Rose, Alan Weekes, Lance Rose and Eddie “Tan Tan” Thornton whose combined credits include playing for Jazz Jamaica, Jazz Warriors, Ska Cubano, Aswad, The Beatles, The Mighty Diamonds, Janet Kay and Georgie Fame. To be hosting a band with their pedigree and sheer musicality is a privilege.  Not to be missed.

19.00- midnight.  Salsa class 19.00-20.00hrs.  Mambista from 20.00 til midnight.

Click on the PayPal “Add to Cart” button above to pay just £6, in advance or £8 on the door (both prices include the salsa dance class).
