End Of The Road October 28 2014
Five and a half years ago, 'Round Midnight was born.
Replacing a down at heel 'old man's boozer', we aimed to create a small, intimate bar sitting somewhere in between a cosy pub and a modern Jazz club.
We like to think we accomplished that.
But after more than five years,well over fifteen hundred shows and a great number of full-to-capacity nights, we have decided to move on from 'Round Midnight and pursue our other goals.
We would like to personally thank both our clientele for their continued support over the years and all the acts that have performed for us. We can honestly say that we've virtually never had a dud show or a bad crowd and for a music venue in Central London, that's a very rare thing indeed!
Whilst it's unfair to single any acts out individually, we would like to pay tribute to the artists that have performed regularly over the past few years:
Niall Kelly for hosting our amazing Tuesday night Blue Jam,
Mark Harrison for hosting London's best acoustic showcase every Monday,
Owen Houlson for the Blues Jam and general sound duties,
Dan Spanner for his tremendous Big Band and his Spanner Jazz Punks that we love so much.
Not to mention:
The Cadillac Kings,
Jimmy C & The Blues Dragons,
Rollo Markee & The Tailshakers,
Gentleman Tim & The Contenders,
Blues and Jazz lovers, don't despair! Whilst there will not be anymore live music from November 3rd, 'Round Midnight will remain open. It's recorded music will still remain a collection of the finest Blues, Roots, Soul and Jazz music from the past one hundred years and in addition, 'Round Midnight, in partnership with 'Red Dog Saloon' restaurants, will be serving the finest burgers, Philly Cheese Steaks and all around general American goodness for your eating pleasure!
