Basement Tapes with Segundo Stanley

The Segundo Stanley Hammond Duo was born in 2015 out of a jam session in the intimate, basement testing ground that is Kansas Smitty’s bar. This breakout show was a sellout and transitioned the duo’s identity from jam band to ensemble. As longtime sidemen with trombonist, Dennis Rollins, Pedro and Ross have rolled thousands of miles together across the UK and abroad. This decade-long friendship and musical bond guarantees their otherworldly and often telepathic performances will leave audiences speechless.

Two houses:

First House: Doors 7pm, music from 8pm (no interval)

Second House: Doors 9.30, music from 10pm (no interval)
