PETE DE VIT

Friday 29th October

After about 10 years, Pete Moore or “Lejazz” or “Pete De Vit” is still playing records at La Raza. Raised on a diet of Jungle from the age of 13 onto Jazz, Funk, Soul, Dancehall, Techno, House and anything else with an off centre vibe, Pete guarantees you will dance, cry, get angry, stop being angry and start making love whenever you hear him play. That alone has to be worth coming.  

He’ll cover as many styles as possible in one evening, with the dance-floor always the number one priority. Expect something different to the rest of the music in the city.

SWAGGER

Friday 12th November

Swagger have years of experience and heaps of talent! They have been our house band at La Raza for the past 10 years, and every month always fill the dance floor!

They play the classics with a twist, so expect a mix of 60s groove, 70s funk, 80s cheese and 90s favourites, with plenty of surprises thrown in! They take their music very seriously, but not necessarily themselves…they are five grown men who do not shy away from the kind of tunes that would terrify your average suited-up ensemble!

PHIL STEVENSON TRIO

Thursday 18th November

The Phil Stevenson Trio play an original and melodic brand of groove-based jazz, laced with the warmth of blues and improvisation. Playing original material, they are influenced by artists such as Eddie Harris, the Meters and Jimi Hendrix. The trio have played to packed crowds at venues across the UK, including Cambridge Jazz Festival, the Vortex and the Southbank.

The band’s aim is to have fun plotting a wide course through funk music, from the looseness of New Orleans to the locked-up grooves of James Brown, drawing on raw blues and West African guitar styles.
