Dominic Alldis & Renato D'Aiello @ Ronnie's Bar, Upstairs

Location visible to members


This is a wonderful evening at Ronnie Scott's Club (upstairs bar) where saxophonist Renato D'Aiello has been hosting his music event every Monday night since july 2010. It's a very friendly meet up in one of the most beautiful and elegant clubs in London. Having played in many venues/festivals all over the the world in the last 30 years, Renato now still performs frequently in Paris, Oslo, Berlin, Finland, Antigua, Italy and Malta.

The music is fantastic, classic tenor sax led jazz with a top jazz piano trio. At 8 pm Renato plays the first one hour set of American standards and his own original melodic originals. After the first break Renato invites on stage every week a wonderful special guest vocalist for the second set. Renato often invites visiting musicians to perform during the first two breaks to come along and do a few songs. It could be classical musicians, songwriters, but always of the highest quality, so there's always something interesting going on. The doors open at 6pm, music is from 8pm to midnight and it's just £7 so it's really good value and easy to get to. Food is available too for anyone who gets peckish. Renato and Helen Theophanous will be hosting the meet up making sure everybody is comfortably seated. A table with a great view of the band will be reserved for everyone. I look forward to seeing you at this world-famous club for an evening full of great jazz.
