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.

The food will be prepared by Joanna Soto Correa, SRA’s fabulous, local, professional chef. Her buffet style menu will allow you to savour a whole range of Caribbean dishes.
