The Ronnie Scott’s Story

October 11th 7:45 pm

 

Live on stage and direct from London’s world-famous jazz club and combining world-class live jazz, alongside narration and rare archive photos and video footage, The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, take you on a guided, musical tour, to celebrate the music and history of this music institution.

Set amongst the dive bars and jazz jook joints of London’s Soho, we hear about the desperate hand-to-mouth finances of the early years and the frequent police raids. We hear how Ronnie’s became neutral ground within rife gang territory and their scrapes with gangsters including the Krays who were rumoured to have taken Ronnie and Pete “for a little drive”! Life at Ronnie’s is evocatively re-imagined through tales of the club’s past visitors, from pop stars, film stars and politicians to comedians and royalty, but above all, the musicians.

Hosted and performed live on stage by the award-winning Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, and featuring classic music from the jazz greats who have performed at Ronnie Scott’s, projected images and footage – alongside and tales of old Soho, miscreant musicians and police raids ‘The Ronnie Scott’s Story’ is a glimpse into this unique world and its incredible history.
