Boisdale Of Canary Wharf: Soul Fridays
London's best jazz venue try their hand at soul
London's best jazz venue are having a shot at soul. Building on their reputation for organising some of the capital's best live-music nights, they've stuck to the classic formula: Good food. Good people. Good times and, most important of all, good music. Grab a ticket, and see what all the fuss is about. Program: 5th Feb: Black Hat Band (09.45pm) The ultimate party band, playing everything from James Brown to Beyoncé and featuring London’s answer to Chaka Khan - the amazing Jaelee. 12th Feb: Oomphf (09.45pm) This sharp-suited band of funk brothers is back again after their triumph last year. They play the sort of good-time party music that puts a spring in the souls of your dancing shoes as they blast through a feel-good mix of soul classics. 19th Feb: Soul City (09.45pm) Soul City is an energetic and hugely entertaining seven-piece soul outfit. The band’s members have played and recorded with an impressive list of artists including Jools Holland, Amy Winehouse, Will Young, Roy Ayers, Alexander O’Neal, Alice Russell, De La Soul and many others. 26th Feb: Payback (9.45pm) Payback is one of the busiest classic soul bands in the land comprising a rock-solid rhythm section, a pumping horn section and fronted by two charismatic, sexy singers. 4th March: Atlantic Soul Orchestra (09.45pm) Playing the very best of Stax and Atlantic soul, from soul music’s golden era. Hear the hits from the likes of Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Ray Charles, Wilson Picket and Sam Cooke, delivered with unparalleled passion and accuracy.
