We’re Moving…

Not literally, and the piano won’t suffer. From the start of September my jazz residency at London’s Toulouse Lautrec will have a new home on Wednesday nights.

There will also now be a “minimum” (as our cousins across the pond would say) – ie £5 entry, which includes £5 credit at the bar. So it’s still effectively free, but you’ll have to buy a pint and a bag of nuts. I don’t think that’s too terrible, to be honest. Hey, you can make friends by passing your nuts around. Or not.

This means we’ll be skipping from Monday 29 August to Wednesday 7 September. Which will give the hard-working house band a chance to enjoy a well-earned break at a luxury health spa in Lake Como. Our drummer Joel is particularly looking forward to the hot stones massages and I can’t wait to flush out my system with lukewarm seaweed juice. Yeah, right…

So tell your friends. Or if you know people who don’t like jazz and you want to muck them about, tell them. Oh… basically just tell everybody.
