    We welcome back the amazing Cosimo Matassa Project, who are a collection of London musicians working to conjure up the unique rhythm ‘n’ blues flavours that emerged from New Orleans in the late 1940s and early 1950s. At the core of the band are pianist and arranger Al ‘Dente’ Dunn (Loudon Wainwright / Richard Thompson), singer and double bassist Dai Price (Dai & The Ramblers) and drummer Roy Pfeffer (The Big Smoke Family). They’re often joined by guest musicians from London’s Rhythm & Blues scene, and members of their collective have played with the likes of Allen Toussaint, James Hunter and Van Morrison. Over recent years the band have become regulars on the Rhythm & Blues and Jazz circuit, gigging around the top London clubs including Ronnie Scott’s in Soho..
