Jakub Klimiuk Trio, a London-based contemporary jazz project, combines modern jazz inspired by the New York scene with influences from Scandinavian improvised music and contemporary classical pieces. The resultant repertoire is a highly energetic mix of scripted forms and free improvisation, drawing from various genres but at the same time staying deeply rooted in the jazz tradition.

Tonight, the band will present a repertoire ranging from original compositions and tunes by the great contemporary jazz composers, to arrangements of traditional jazz standards.

TONIGHT: NEW ORLEANS JAM

20:30 - NQ SECOND-LINE PARADE FOR QUEEN ELIZABETH II

Monday 19th September
Doors: 6pm / Jam: 9pm-12am / Free Entry

Join us tonight in celebrating the life of Queen Elizabeth II. At 20:30, house band The Nightcreatures will parade the Northern Quarter, playing traditional New Orleans funeral music. Brass musicians are welcome to join - the songs will be ‘Just A Closer Walk With Thee’, ‘Didn’t He Ramble’, and ‘When The Saints’. Then, the New Orleans Jam will commence at 9pm.

As well as that, we've extended Happy Hour so it's all night tonight (6pm-12am). Raise a glass to Queen Elizabeth II with us - 2 house cocktails for £12, 2 drinks get a free pizza.

The New Orleans Jam sees our little jazz club filled with the blaring brass, Rhythm and Blues, Second Line Grooves, Street Beats, Funk, Rock’n’Roll, and Rhumba of New Orleans, where the round-the-clock atmosphere sees never ending music filling the streets… This is the music of Dr. John, Fats Domino, Jelly Roll Morton, and Professor Longhair, to name but a few, and those who come by to play at the jams follow in their footsteps tremendously.

NOLA tunes really are in a class of their own, being seen by many as the true origin of traditional jazz. The bringing together of musicians in New Orleans, to all be united by music, is all about the atmosphere of a live performance. Horns aplenty, thundering drums, heavy guitar riffs, and whatever other instrument might appear would come together to create a sound to celebrate life and ensure the party never stops. The M&P New Orleans Jam sees musicians from any background brought together by this same attitude to live music. So long as it’s played in a New Orleans style… Anything goes.

A Second-Line Parade for Queen Elizabeth II - Monday 19.09.22, 8:30pm

We’ve been quiet about the death of Queen Elizabeth II. A large reason behind this is that we wanted to do something substantial.

Join us next Monday in raising a glass to Queen Elizabeth II, and spending a short time parading the streets of the Northern Quarter with brass band The Nightcreatures playing some traditional New Orleans funeral parade songs. It feels to us like the right thing to do to mark this momentous time.

Everyone is welcome to join us, and any brass musicians out there are welcome to join the parading band. The songs being played will be: ‘Just A Closer Walk With Thee’, ‘Didn’t He Ramble’, and ‘When The Saints’.

The parade will start at around 8:30pm on Monday 19.09.22, outside Matt & Phred’s on Tib Street.

The most incredible night with the most beautiful people.

From the bottom of my heart thank you Jonathan Mayor Jake DuPree Titsalina Bumsquash Burlesque Performer Natasha Moonshine & Paula Surtees for sharing the Matt and Phreds stage with me last night. I loved every minute with you all.

I have been producing my shows at M&P for 9 years this year and being on stage is the one place that makes me feel truly alive but as a producer I still love that I can “fan-girl” over all my performers and I get to witness their creativity as well as my own. Last night was a testament to this.

Thank you to everyone who came to support Cherie Bebe's Burlesque R***e last night, it was so wonderful to see lots of familiar faces and friends in the audience and as always thank you to the Matt and Phreds team for looking after us. Especially to Claire, Sarah and Jordan behind the scenes who have always championed our show.

Thank you to my lovely friend Darren McGinn Photography who sent me this image at 3am and it put a huge smile on my face right before I went to bed! ❤️

Cherie Bebe’s Burlesque R***e is back on Sunday 13th November and it’s our 9th birthday special! I hope to see you all there.
