“The Ronnie Scott’s Story”

“Outstanding players. For poise, balance and swing they’re a joy to listen to’
The Observer

‘Full-on brilliance’
The Guardian

 ‘Marrying vision and sound comes The Ronnie Scott’s Story, recounting the blazing trajectory of the legendary jazz shrine with a creative combo of live band action, natty narratives and rare archival footage’
Jazzwise Magazine

Direct from London’s world-famous jazz club and combining world class live jazz, narration and rare archive photos and video footage, The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars return to Hall for Cornwall with a brand new programme of music celebrating The Ronnie Scott’s Story.

Set amongst the dive bars and jazz juke joints of London’s Soho, we hear about the desperate hand-to-mouth finances of the early years and the frequent police raids.  We hear how Ronnie’s became neutral ground within rife gang territory and their scrapes with gangsters including the Krays who were rumoured to have taken Ronnie and Pete “for a little drive”!  Life at Ronnie’s is evocatively reimagined through tales of the club’s past visitors, from pop stars, film stars and politicians to comedians and royalty, but above all, the musicians…

Mixing classic music from the jazz greats who have performed at Ronnie Scott’s over its incredible 60-plus year history, alongside tales of old Soho, miscreant musicians and police raids, this is a unique evening celebrating one of the world’s most famous jazz venues, its music, and history.

Running time: approximately 2 hours including an interval
