Night Flight plays the grooves of jazz, with the energy of rock and the heart of acoustic music. Original material, with the panache of Steely Dan, the drive of Van Morrison, the complexity of Joni Mitchell – and the unpredictability of Rickie Lee Jones. At the same time it’s smart and raw, groovy and melodic, clever and fun….

Their debut album is out now, and gaining airplay internationally with gigs around London. We are delighted to welcome them to Ryan’s Bar.

The Three Deuces plays classic Rhythm and Blues from the 40s to the 80s that gets your heart a-jumpin’ and your feet a-dancin’…  Charlie Kronick leads his 3 piece through a tour of American music designed to bop the night away!.

Michael Sebastian 
Michael Sebastian is a talented thief. He steals shamelessly; jazz, hip-hop, electronic and rock exist symbiotically in his creations. Combining volatile performance and hallucinatory lyricism over ornate grooves, he opens the dancefloor for the mind and body to dance as one.

In Search Of 
In the clutch of tracks produced so far, there are moments of rock, hip hop, RnB, reggae, jazz, dub and indie fused together with hidden, echoey and often eerie vocals and harmonies. Mixing tributes to older sounds with innovative new ones, life is certainly never dull with In Search Of around

Cove 
Alternative rock dance pop

April Jai
 Blending her love of Pop and Country music she has developed a voice of her own, drawing influence from artists such as Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves and The Civil Wars.
