What you'll do
Guests will be treated to an intimate gig by Ray Russell & Mo Foster at the fantastic basement speakeasy of Aces & Eights in Tufnell Park. They will share stories of their time as session musicians & performing live with people such as Jeff Beck, Van Morrison & Gil Evans.
Come and hear legendary session musicians Ray Russell and Mo Foster who played with everyone from Tina Turner to David Bowie and appear on hundreds of recordings. You'll hear music and stories from the heyday of Londons thriving music scene of the '60s & '70s. I've had the great privilege of getting to know Ray, Mo and many of the other session players (some who come down to the gig) while working on a film about their life and times. Their humour and talent is something that really lends itself to a live show and this is such a great way to learn about those times.

Where you'll be
The gig will be in North London's Aces & Eights located right across the street from Tufnell Park Station which is a 15 minute tube ride from central London. The basement venue was originally the strongroom for a Bank and has now been transformed into a stylish and decadent speakeasy. With the corner stage surrounded by grand drapes this intimate setting has all the right atmosphere. Great pizza & cocktails are available as well.
