The community of Brixton has a large proportion of people with strong African and Caribbean roots, which means its thriving nightlife provides a wealth of multi-culural entertainment, including grime, hip-ho; it is particularly well known for its growing music scene, with grime, hip-hop, and rap being at the forefront in recent years. Also gaining favour are some 'cool cats' such as Courtney Pine, who is one of the world's best recognised saxophone players and jazz musicians. To find out what makes him so good, why not head down Brixton Jamm on the 10th April, where he will be performing between 7pm-12am, at this lively nightclub.
He will be putting on a special show, featuring upbeat tunes from his latest album, House of Legends. It is a unique chance to get up close and personal with a youth inspiring professional, while at the same time raising money for charity. As a big supporter of the Mary Seacole Memorial Statue Appeal, Courtney will be donating profits to the cause, which is an important step remind the public of the importance of the nursing profession and the significant contribution Seacole made during the Crimean War.
Tickets are £15 at the door or £13 when booked in advance.
