December live jazz performances in London

I am delighted that my very brand new website for live band bookings: www.livejazzsinger.com is already getting noticed & I get booked to sing all over London & UK with two bookings confirmed for 2015 already! There is also free London events for anyone fancying some jazz to pop in! 🙂 Last weekend I played in a lovely pub in Kentish Town, and this coming Sunday 7th Dec I will perform at the lovely Dalston Market 🙂 I will be joined by the incredible Benjamin Croft on keys and Nick Nick Lenner-Webster on bass. Come and join us for some free music and a glass of mulled wine 🙂 We will be at the back of the Petchey academy on Downs Park Road E8 2HD Facebook event details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1585060961726730/?ref=22 See you there 🙂...
