On the first, second and fourth Sundays of every month at Forest Tavern E7, we bring a little live Jazz flavour to London Town. Pairing two live sets from the Dig A Little Jazz house band and guests, with DJ sets from the Dig A Little resident DJs before, after and in between, it’s a perfect weekend wind down for those who enjoy a bit of quality music on a Sunday afternoon. Fronted by Jason Simpson on bass and Bubu Drum Jah Tooth on drums, and featuring a rotating ensemble of musicians plus occasional guests, the band perform a rich blend of standards and improvised material over the course of the afternoon starting from 5,30pm.
It wouldn’t be a Dig A Little event however without some vinyl involved and sure enough you’ll hear plenty of great tracks from the vast history of the Jazz age, as each month Dig A Little DJs and selected guests (on rotation) pull out some of the assorted rhythms available to them to lay on the turntables before and after the band sets, and during the break as well!
Entry is free all afternoon, and if you’re early enough you can catch one of the Tavern’s delicious Sunday roasts before all the fun starts.
