Social evening and live Jazz in Chelsea
Friday 29th June Relaxed social evening in a lovely setting with swinging music from Salena Jones and her Quartet. This event is one which I periodically arrange in some of London`s nicest music rooms. Venue address: The Pheasantry, Pizza Express, 152 King`s Road, Chelsea, London SW3 4UT Website information and online booking link - https://www.pizzaexpresslive.com/whats-on/salena-jones I have negotiated a special ticket price of £18 (full price is £25) - but which you can only get by making an advance telephone booking to[masked] (and quoting “MEETUP). If you cannot get through to their booking line (which is supposed to be manned daily between 10 am and 6 pm) – contact by email - [masked] The Music Room itself opens from 7 pm - show starts at 8.30 pm. Dining is optional in the same room, and if you plan to eat then I suggest arriving before 7.30 pm There will be an interval during the show. Although I have aimed this event for Friday 29th, it is also available on Saturday 30th for those who might wish to come on that evening Once I know the number attending from advance bookings advised to me by the venue, I will ensure that we are sat together - I will be in there myself on both Friday and Saturday evenings. Please do not RSVP unless you follow through and make an advance booking with the venue. Salena Jones - “Jazz Doyenne who bridges gap with Pop” live performance extract : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-0iXhBzP9w Time Out - “Stunning British based US singer Salena Jones has a touch of Sarah Vaughan in her technique and a great feel for working intimate jazz venues. She's on fine form, packing a soulful and emotional punch live and is backed here by a highly skilled band: pianist Chris Eldred, bassist Jules Jackson, drummer Pete Cater and saxophonist Richard Shepherd” Over her career Salena Jones has sung with Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, Hank Jones, Ray Brown, Sarah Vaughan, Maynard Ferguson, Mark Murphy, Kenny Burrell, Dudley Moore, Roy Budd, Toots Thielemans , Tom Jones, Antonio Carlos Jobim, the BBC Big Band and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra www.salenajones.com and you can see Salena Jones on www.youtube.com Please feel free to contact me with any questions Regards Tony[masked] [masked]
