Jazzy ska from London

Skanking the Earl Haig


Oct 14, 2016 Comments are off

We had lots of fun playing one of our favourite venues, the Earl Haig Hall, in Crouch End last night.

It’s an old British Legion Hall, brought back to life as a great pub/venue – though we like to think of Earl Haig as a lesser known counterpart to Duke Ellington and Count Basie.

It was a lovely appreciative audience, and it is always a real pleasure to play when the sound is good. Thanks Matt!

We only managed a few photos as it was pretty dark with the lights in the wrong place to get decent shots. But if anyone in the audience wants to share pictures or videos, please add them to out Facebook page.

This is what we played – a slightly shorter set than we had planned as we hadn’t factored in the 10pm curfew to keep the neighbours happy.
