Newton BrownAt 8pm Gerry Lyseight picks up the mood with DJ duties on either side of live music from  Jazz Carib (sometimes known as the Effra All Stars) from the legendary Thursday-night sessions at the Effra.  Featuring the likes of Kenrick Rowe, Bammie Rose and Eddie “Tan Tan” Thornton who between them have played with everyone from Aswad, PJ Harvey, Georgie Fame, Ska Cubano, Jazz Jamaica to The Beatles …They have been resident on Thursday nights at the Effra for an extraordinary 20 years and it’s clear that it’s the love of playing live that has held the whole thing together for so long. Despite their pedigree and illustrious history these guys still love playing their own take on Jazz, Reggae and Ska and it’s a joyous and infectious experience.19.00- midnight.  Salsa class 19.00-20.00hrs.  Mambista from 20.00 til midnight.
