Roy Ayers on Friday 12th April 2019
Plus Special Guests
Roy Ayers is, without a doubt, a living legend.
A true pioneer, Ayers’ influence in the 56 years he’s been active has rippled out into all corners of the music industry. From being a key figure in the acid jazz movement to being crowned the Godfather of Neo-Soul, to then being one of the most sampled artists in history while bridging the gap between jazz and hip-hop, Ayers’ genius is untouchable.
Any crate-digger worth their salt can spend weeks working through Ayers’ extensive catalogue of music. However, it’s the live shows that solidify Ayers as being a truly special talent. Last year at his sold-out show at The Barbican, Ayers worked the room in a way that left the audience completely enthralled. Working through his classics “Everybody Loves the Sunshine”, “Searchin”, “Running Away,” and more, with laid-back banter between his first-class band and the audience, everyone left the show feeling as if they had been schooled in the excellence of jazz, funk, and soul by a master of the craft.
This coming spring, Ayers will return to the capital for an incredibly special 2 night run at Union Chapel, London’s most spellbinding venue. This is an unmissable chance to catch one of the world’s most iconic musicians live.
