Pre-order Italian food for the night here. (Main courses need to be pre-ordered 48 hours in advance, light bites available on the night.)

We are delighted to continue our run at the yacht club which has a great acoustic, welcoming staff and great food and drink.

Diners need to pre-order from the resident Italian chef Paola from 6.30pm. Please take advantage to keep this feature of our nights going! Sample menu available here.

This high energy, groove-driven group got together to revive the classic jazz funk hits from its hey days in the 70s, 80s and 90s (although underground jazz funk gangs continue to operate today). While there are many heroes and sub-genres to cover, they have selected tunes by Herbie Hancock, George Benson, the Crusaders, Pat Metheny and Pee Wee Ellis. The Brecker Brothers are such giants (and Neil’s favourites) that they get two tunes including the iconic jazz-rock anthem, Some Skunkfunk.

You don’t often see groups devoted to this genre outside London, but there is clearly a demand – they packed out a raucous Saturday night performance at our 2019 festival and had queues tailing down into the street.

Featuring Neil Maya on saxes, Kev Sanders on bass, Jesse Molins on guitars, Gary Evans on drums and percussion, Tom Ball on keyboards and vocoder.

Want to try before you buy? The band did a live lockdown gig which you can preview here.
