    The roster of talented musicians and vocalists never disappoint. We've seen Theo via virtual gigs a couple of times and were so happy to see the show live. Everyone was amazing and the venue was superb. We can't wait to see the show the next time we're in London!

    I visited the Hidden Jazz Club on Saturday the 11/03/2023 and what a thoroughly enjoyable evening I had. The band this time comprised of Gareth Lockrane on flutes, Elisa Caleb - vocals, Will Barry on piano, Jo Caleb on guitar, Tom Farmer on bass and Rod Youngs on drums. The sets included a fitting tribute to Wayne Shorter, a rousing vocal rendition of "My Favourite Things", a soupçon of Bossa Nova with Elisa encouraging a bit of audience participation. Great instrument solos and overall band timing. This band can play! A great value night out. Hide no more. Play Jazz loud and raise the roof. The only thing hidden was the encore. More, please!
