Joe Thompson plays piano in bars; some very nice bars in fact. Thirty years ago, as a music graduate new to London, he began playing piano in bars while he figured out what he was going to do next. Meeting and playing with some of the greatest musicians in town is what came next and playing for lots of very famous people.

Joining Thompson (who is now Musical Director of The Ivy) are two very good friends, Robert Rickenberg on bass and Sophie Alloway on drums, as well as a few surprise guests. This is a guaranteed evening of great music and laughs.
