Camden's iconic Jazz Cafe is set to reopen on 24th May.
To celebrate the venue's relaunch, the Jazz Cafe will host a wicked two-week opening party programme featuring Pantha Du Prince, Dave Harrington, Dam Funk, Egyptian Lover, Portico, Pete Josef plus showcases from 22a and NTS.
The Jazz Cafe was bought by The Columbo Group back in January and has undergone an extensive three million pound renovation with the venue's décor, layout, sound technology and food and drink options all revised.
On the relaunch, Steve Ball, Director of The Columbo Group, has said: "The team have been, and are still very much hard at work to bring about our vision for the venue; both physically in terms of the venue itself and in terms of the programme. The Jazz Cafe, at its heart, has had such a broad spectrum of music on offer, it'd be impossible for us to represent all of that in the relaunch fortnight but we have assembled a very high quality sample of the sounds we'll be putting on moving forward."
In its 25-year history The Jazz Cafe, a former bank on Parkway, Camden, has seen a whole host of legendary performances. Artists to have graced The Jazz Cafe stage include Gil Scott Heron, Herbie Hancock, Mulatua, Astake, Lee Scratch Perry, D’Angelo, Lana Del Ray, Bobby Womack and Amy Winehouse.
