Act Profile

Blues du Soir

​Blues du Soir are a jazz quartet influenced by groovin' 60's bossa-nova and Latin boogaloo. Basically the perfect soundtrack to cocktails and socialising. We're specialists in playing music which adds to the experience and atmosphere so your guests converse more and stay longer. We do this by keeping the evening flowing and not leaving gaps in between tunes, nor playing at a volume that disturbs conversation; playing some of the savviest instrumental bossa-nova and boogaloo from the Blue Note era; we dress sharp and don't have lots of bulky and unsightly equipment or even require a PA system. In fact we only need a floor space of 4x2m².

Act Information

Line-up

Blues de Minuit are led by drummer Robert Pokorny and percussionist Jason Ribeiro, with the line-up being complemented by upright-bass and jazz guitar/keys. Between us we've worked with British soul sensation James Hunter, acclaimed jazz organist John Medeski, vintage scene R'n'B star Si Cranstoun and Chicago Blues legend Billy Branch.

What's more, having each played at prestigious London venues such as Ronnie Scotts, Madison Roof Terrace, The Chelsea Arts Club, Shoreditch House, and Kensing

Also included

Our act is actually PA and lighting free - which is a big selling point for us. This means we are used because we don't have lots of equipment or wires, and specialise in playing live background music which doesn't require a PA.

Location

South East based and will travel to these areas: South East, Midlands.
