Join us for our annual Hogmanay party to ring in the new year with 9-hours filled with the very best jazz and funk that The Jazz Bar has to offer.
Featuring music from a very special jazz quintet made up of the finest musicians around, followed by late-night funk led by incredible local guitar hero Aki Remally, and to top it all off, there’s a funky DJ all the way to 5am! (Fuelled by Espresso Martinis!)
9PM – THE BELLS!
LOUISE DODDS QUINTET
Join jazz vocalist Louise Dodds and her quintet as they see out 2018 in style at The Jazz Bar this Hogmanay.
Louise will be performing her last gig of the year with an incredible line up featuring Rich Harrold (Trio HLK) on piano, London based saxophonist Matthew Herd, Brodie Jarvie on double bass and Greg Irons on drums. The quintet will be playing a specially selected set of tunes and arrangements designed to get everyone in the mood for celebrating and ringing in the bells together! Expect classic favourites from Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington and many more. Just don’t expect to stay in your seats for long!
DJ BETWEEN BANDS!
DJ SIMON HODGE is here to play you through the band breaks from Midnight all the way until 5am (pace yourselves!), spitting out funky, dance-floor filling jams all night long!
1AM – 3.30AM
THE AKI PROJECT
Flying you into 2019 with 2 sets of super-funky jams; original, classic and jazz-tinged wonder!
Aki Remally fronts this brand new 5-piece funk odyssey, featuring Jonny White on saxophone, rhythm section swagger provided by Jamie Graham and Tom Wilkinson, and the moog-tastic keyboard stylings of HLK’s Rich Harrold.
This is a debut performance and brand new band from our resident hero Aki Remally, bringing in his own original tunes alongside fresh compositions and collaborations. This promises to be the NYE funk party to end them all!
