They can regularly be seen playing their residency at Ronnie Scott’s and The Magic Garden or at clubs like, Pizza Express LIVE, Hootanany and at Festivals like LJF, Bestival and Ealing blues. Having witnessed them Live at the SLST in 2018, believe us when we say that best of times await + we truly can't wait to welcome them back to The South London Soul Train Live stage.
