Le Jazz

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.

Entry £4 10pm – 12am, £5 12am – 2am

Friday 9th

SWAGGER

 

Matt Start and Owen Chambers front the band with an impressive display of musical versatility. Both excellent singers, they compliment each other’s voices with vocal harmonies, percussion and by trading places on the piano. Owen also brings a few additional layers to the performance – modern synth sounds, acoustic guitar and the occasional trumpet solo. Matt and Owen’s energy and vocal flexibility allows Swagger to offer a much broader repertoire than most ensembles whilst still doing justice to the originals. Joe Taylor (Drums and Backing Vocals) and Tiago Coimbra (Bass) provide a solid funk groove and ensure that the blues-rocking of Vess Popov (Guitar) comes back down to earth eventually.

Early Night Club

 

The Early Night Club is a Cambridge club night with a difference – it’s clubbing for those of us who need our sleep. Our DJ’s start playing at around 8pm (doors open at 7.30pm) and finish at 11.30pm (or sometimes midnight if we’re feeling really crazy).

 

We play great music that you will have heard of, serve fantastic cocktails and tapas and everyone is friendly and up for it – and let’s just say we’re all old enough to remember leg warmers the first time round. It’s about as much fun as you can squeeze into four hours and is always a night to remember.
