    Charismatic jazz singer Kevin Fitzsimmons takes a break from starring in the big  band  concert  ‘Sinatra  Sequins  &  Swing  -  The  Capitol  Years  Live!  to  bring  his  brilliant ‘Bennett  - To – Buble’: The American Songbook At Its Best!  show to us following nine sell outs of this very show at Ronnie Scott’s. The show itself is a clever mix of standards covered by Messrs Bennett, Buble & co., so expect songs like: Don’t Get Around Much Any More, Fever, I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face, Steppin’ Out, re-styled with taste and verve.  With Kevin is his unstoppably swinging band, described by JAZZWISE Magazine in review of his album as “the cream of UK’s straight-ahead jazz musicians”.

    Come along and hear what all the fuss is about and enjoy the award winning pianist swinging Leon Greening. 

    Wynton Marsalis says about saxophonist Sam Mayne “We haven't had anything like this in New York for over twenty years".

    Bassist Tim Thornton won the 2013 British Jazz Award in the rising star category and is a regular member of the Ronnie Scott's Quintet.

    Award winning Welsh drummer Lloyd Haines also appears regularly at Ronnie Scott's.
