ANDREW ASHONG
Soul rebel...
Weds 20 June

Welcoming back for our next Music Dinner... singer, song-writer, producer, DJ and musical groovster Andrew Ashong.

We're excited! Anyone who came to his show last year will testify... you're in for a treat. Come get lost in the sound.

[NB. We're an intimate venue with limited seating - best not think about it too long.]

"Andrew Ashong stands out. We haven’t had one of these for a while: a hazy, jazzy dreamer of a young soul rebel who in his music references Roy Ayers and Shuggie Otis, Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye….It’s soul music for people who have been dismayed by most of the major developments in soul music of the last two, even three, decades." - The Guardian

NATALIE DUNCAN
Vocals, piano, percussion
Weds 16 May

Natalie returns for another quiet and intimate candlelit music dinner... we can't wait!

Bluesy and spellbinding... she's pure sonic therapy for music lovers.  

A rare treat to hear a highly regarded singer-songwriter in such an intimate setting.  

(NB. All tables are for two people only.)

THE SUGAR SISTERS
Vocal harmony trio
Weds 2 Aug

"Just exceptional. These three girls are sunbeams... Dynamite!"

Harmonies and arrangements of 40s swing, 90s RnB and Calypso with a playful sassiness and infectious charm - this night is going to be fun!

ALEX FRANCIS
"An emotive melding of rock and soul"
Weds 5 July

"...Alex's distinctive soulful/pop sound, with exquisite acoustic guitar work set against his charming, rasping vocals which radiate pure emotion." - I'm Music Mag

Now here's an exciting artist.

Things might well be kicking off for Alex Francis -- he's just recorded with Melanie C and supported her on a European tour, his debut EP has just landed, and this summer he'll be playing a bunch of festival stages across the UK -- but here's your chance to see him in an intimate setting.

This will be a stripped down acoustic set with two vocals and two guitars - it's sure to be special.

KADIJA KAMARA
Alternative soul
Weds 7 June

"Kadija Kamara has soul" - Clash Mag

Kadija Kamara's music is 'alternative soul', a fusion of 60s and 70s sounds with retro soul and modern influences.

I saw Kadija perform recently and just had to invite her to the Wet Fish... Her voice is stunning, she's a consumate performer and her stripped down set at the Wet Fish is sure to be a treat.

She recently won the MTV Iggy Artist of the Week poll and has collaborated with the likes of Joey Negro, Zeb Bias, Husky and more.

Kadija will be performing a stripped down set as a trio - another unmissable music dinner.

LISA MARINI
Gypsy blues trio
Weds 17 May

"A sultry voice and a unique presence"- Time Out

"Her self-penned songs are achingly melodic and artfully delivered, Lisa Marini is spell-binding and mesmerising"- Live Nation

We're so excited to have Lisa Marini back, she's a stunning performer with a captivating voice.   She silenced the room when she played at the cafe last year.

Lisa blends Blues with Gypsy and Latin to create her own unique, authenticly fresh sound.  It's also been described as dark folk with elements of jazz.  You decide!

She's sold out shows in The Jazz Cafe and Ronnie Scotts and has quite the reputation on the London scene;  Lisa is tipped as one to watch in 2017 by both Time Out Live and Live

Nation.Lisa performs with her Spanish guitar accompanied by Jack Tustin (double bass) and Arthur Newell (percussion).

ANDREW ASHONG
Soul rebel
Weds 30 Nov

It's no wonder his track ‘Flowers’ won Gilles Peterson’s ‘Track of the Year’ at the Worldwide Awards.

I saw Andrew Ashong live recently and just had to invite him to the Wet Fish... He's a soulful, charismatic performer and his jam is compulsive listening and viewing. You're in for a treat.

"Andrew Ashong stands out. We haven’t had one of these for a while: a hazy, jazzy dreamer of a young soul rebel who in his music references Roy Ayers and Shuggie Otis, Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye….It’s soul music for people who have been dismayed by most of the major developments in soul music of the last two, even three, decades." - Time Out

Andrew Ashong, the man countless music bloggers have been urging audiences to go and see will be giving his first performance at the Wet Fish. He'll be joined by 3 band members for an hour's acoustic bliss.

Come and get lost in the sound...

NATALIE DUNCAN
SOLO SHOW
Weds 12 Oct

We keep asking her back for a reason... she's just astoundingly good.

Natalie returns for another quiet and intimate candlelit music dinner - solo, just her and her keyboard.

Bluesy, spellbinding... this is a journey any self-respecting music lover should not miss under any circumstances.   Sonic therapy.

Six sold-out shows so far, six audiences utterly entranced.

"An absolutely drop dead gorgeous vocal" - i-D

Check what she has to say about her shows at the Wet Fish.

A highly regarded singer-songwriter, this is a rare opportunity to hear such a talent in an intimate setting.

Live music dinner at The Wet Fish Cafe with ethereal pop trio PARADISIA

PARADISIA
Ethereal pop harmony trio
Weds 26 Sept

An intimate candlelit music dinner with two shows by the stunning trio PARADISIA...

Formed less than a year ago, Paradisia have already supported the likes of Tom Jones, Carole King, Laura Mvula, Birdy...

PARADISIA are the three female members of The Night VI, Sophie-Rose, Anna, and Kristy. Their vocals are instantly recognisable to anyone who followed TN6, drawing comparisons to likes of London Grammar and Fleetwood Mac. Simply gorgeous.

PARADISIA grabbed attention quickly with their beautifully deconstructed cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark”. Unmissable.

PURDY
Pop Noir with jazz stylings...
Weds 31 Aug

"So slinky it shouldn't be allowed" Craig Charles, BBC 6 Music

"Great character, unique voice, a true artist" Alan McGee, Creation Records

Purdy, aka Rebecca Poole, is fresh from releasing her debut album 'Diamond in the Dust' and supporting Jools Holland on his UK tour.

Her voice is deep and sultry and her sound is 'pop-noir' with jazz stylings. Imagine nuances of Nina Simone, Nancy Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Henry Mancini and Fleetworrd Mac. Irresistible.

She'll be backed up by guitar and double bass and this promises to be another unmissable music dinner at the Wet Fish.

SAM BROOKES
Solo show
Weds 1 June & 17 Aug

"Absolutely amazing" Ray Davies

Get ready for another sell-out music dinner with the captivating Sam Brookes - a second chance if you missed him last time.

Sublime voice, beautifully crafted songs. His shows at the Wet Fish have been superb.

Not your stereotypical ‘folk bard ‘ his love of singing and performing has been evolving since his days as a chorister, singing for the Queen at her private Chapel in Great Windsor Park; add to this his training as a gilder and Sam already stands apart from his contemporaries.

Immaculate phrasing, beautifully modulated delivery... Check him out on Spotify, you'll soon have him on repeat.

Expect a quiet and intimate performance from an artist who's making quite a name for himself.

NIGEL PRICE TRIO
Jazz guitar
Weds 17 Feb

Nigel's among the most in demand guitar players in UK jazz.  Three years with funksters The James Taylor Quartet, third in the British Jazz Awards for "best guitarist", over 400 gigs at Ronnie Scotts...

We've been trying to book him for over a year now - here's your chance to see a phenomenal player at the Wet Fish. Expect deep blues riffs and toe-tapping jazz numbers, accompanied by percussion and double bass.

He's promised he'll be all over the neck!

As usual this will sell out fast.

PETER HORSFALL QUARTET
30s/40s jazz
Weds 19 June

Some of you were lucky enough to experience the Basin St Brawlers and Smitty's Big Four live at the cafe.  What do they have in common?  Band leader Peter Horsfall - vocalist and trumpeter extraordinaire.

Top drawer musicians playing 30s/40s jazz in the style of Nat King Cole - the original hipster! - make for an unmissable evening of great live music. As usual, this will sell-out very fast.

THE CANARIES
Jazz harmony trio
Weds 9 Sept

We've longed to do a music dinner with a jazz harmony trio and so here they are - The Canaries. Styled on the iconic groups of the 1930s such as The Boswell Sisters, this promises to be a fun evening!

Blended harmonies, unexpected rhythm changes, major keys changed to minor -- mid-song no less -- their music is irresistible and tickles us every time.

Another ground-breaker for the Wet Fish, come enjoy the ride!

Almunia flyer 2

ALMUNIA
Summer Solstice Sundowner
Sunday 21 June, 5pm onwards...

New territory for us... this'll be an evening of sound-scaping.

I love a Pink Floydy (Floydy?!) guitar sound, and I love smooth deep house grooves. Put the two together and you get Almunia - a duo from Italy whose album New Moon (check it on Spotify) makes me feel way cooler than I really am.

Lucky us they're making a rare visit to London and celebrating summer solstice with a live performance at the Wet Fish. Soak up the vibe with a Tom Collins or if you're really feeling it, a Negroni!

Sunday 21 June from 5pm - drop in for a cocktail or book yourself a table for dinner. Easy.

Valentines on the 14th is expected, but treating someone this Sunday 15th show you really care!

SMITTY'S BIG FOUR
Jazz & swing!
Weds 28 Jan

“a lively, friendly, swinging, civilised new band playing approachable music…a welcome addition to the London scene…definitely a band to watch out for” LondonJazz News

The little brother of the Kansas Smitty's House Band, the Big Four plays the music of Sidney Bechet and the upbeat swing of 1930s New Orleans.

The Big Four's unique combination of trumpet, soprano sax/clarinet, guitar and bass, separates the group from traditional Dixieland groups with the omission of drums and piano.

This streamlined formation allows the band to navigate New Orleans and swing standards with energy and tightness while maintaining melodic integrity. The band features Pete Horsfall, Giacomo Smith, Dave Archer, and Ferg Ireland.

Best book quick as this'll be popular. Feel free to wear a hat ;-)

LAUREN BUSH JAZZ
Jazz trio
Weds 26 Nov

Hailing from Canada and now living in London (lucky us!), Lauren Bush grew up in a musical family and is every bit the consumate jazz vocalist - effortless and leaving you wanting more.

We saw her at the Royal Albert Hall's Elgar Room and loved it. Expect exciting new takes on classics as well as some straight-up swinging jazz.

"...charmingly quirky" Jazzwise

"...a raunchy blues through which she scatted and growled to the delight of the audience" Jazzwise

BASIN ST BRAWLERS
20s & 30s hot swinging jazz
Weds 22 Jan

Trilbys and cloche hats optional but encouraged!

Oh boy are we looking forward to this one.  Step into a 1920s speakeasy with the best toe-tapping jazz from the era - Cole Porter, George Gershwin... delivered in the style of Louis Armstrong and Fats Waller...

The Basin Street Brawlers are London's own master exponents of hot jazz, swinging their way through the most beautiful melodies and raucous rags of the 1920s and 30s.

This will be another great night of food, music and well, who knows...

EMILIA MARTENSSON
Jazz duo
Weds 6 Nov

After a summer break, live music at the Wet Fish is back with a very special act - Emilia Martensson accompanied by Barry Green on keyboard.

"The new face of British Jazz 2012..." The Observer

"...intimate, poised and even otherworldly..." Metro

"...Ethereal voice..." Time Out

"Barry Green... as well as being a strong soloist he is something of a singer's dream accompanist." Jazz Breakfast

Their debut album, And So it Goes, documents the duo’s shared love of a wide range of material, presenting fresh and exciting arrangements of a superb choice of songs. Drawing on the wistful folk songs of Emilia’s homeland alongside some of the greatest songs of the last century, the recording is a finely poised blend of jazz and artful alt-pop.

For sure, the jazz vocal legends inform Emilia's approach, yet it is the Swedish folk songs of her country that underpins who she is. Her pure, clear toned intimate voice, at times deeply soulful, at others ethereal, blur the lines between folk and jazz.

Louise 4

LOUISE GOLBEY
Neo-soul
Weds 1 May

This Wednesday 1 May and enjoy dinner with an intimate performance by Louise Golbey - one of the hottest talents on the London circuit right now.

The soul songstress is a new firm favourite on BBC radio;  she's just been selected for this year's Isle of Wight Festival;  last year she opened for George Benson at Kenwood and performed at Glastonbury...

...and next week she's at the Wet Fish for one night only.

If you've been tempted to experience one of our live music dinners, this would be the perfect night to come along.

MAYA ISACOWITZ
Solo show
Weds 14 Nov

It's no wonder Maya won the prestigious 'Best New Artist 2012' Akum award in her home country.

“... an extraordinarily emotive, warm and soulful voice...”

EDDINE SAID
Spanish soul
Weds 3 July

We've invited Eddine Saïd back for another  atmospheric evening of 'jazz club' style dining with his acoustic soul trio - Sunday 3 July.

Eddine has stripped down and adapted his sound especially for these acoustic performances at the Wet Fish.

His success on the Spanish soul and R&B scene comes from mixing Bossa, Rumba and Blues with his North African roots.
