Basement Tapes with Latchepen

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
