High octane swinging jazz and blues from this six piece band led by vocalist and saxophonist Kit Packham.
With a repertoire of over 250 songs ranging from great swing standards, “Rat Pack” numbers and jump/jive rhythm & blues to classic rock’n’roll songs, One Jump Ahead keep the dance floor busy from start to finish. Their irresistible blend of jazz, blues and fun generates a highly charged atmosphere that really lets the good times roll. They have wowed audiences from Islington to Israel, Clerkenwell to County Cork and from Docklands to Deutschland!
One Jump Ahead are led by singer, saxophonist and songwriter, Kit Packham, accompanied by piano, guitar, bass, drums, trumpet and tenor saxophone. The swinging tempos, sizzling sax solos and humour of 40s jump/jive star Louis Jordan have inspired Kit to compose his own, critically acclaimed material – with some fabulously wry and witty lyrics to match!
As usual the night kicks off with a jive class aimed at beginners. The evening continues with two sets from the band and DJs filling in. Music to 1am.
