Every Wednesday at Kansas Smitty's, the ‘Basement Tapes’ mix and match members of the Kansas Smitty’s House Band with musicians from around London and further afield to create once-in-a-lifetime intimate concerts. Sit down with a drink, and get ready to watch something original unfold in front of you.
Latchepen are a London band born out of a collective admiration of Django Reinhardt and anything that swings. The word Latchepen is an exclamation of happiness in the Romani language. Acoustic by nature but with a projection and heart beat that can rival any amplifier or drum, this is jazz on a string with influences ranging from Romani music to bebop.
Doors 7pm, music from 8.30
