Since opening less than a year ago, Hackney’s favourite jazz and julep bar, Kansas Smitty’s, has become recognised as one of the prime hotspots to visit for incredible live music in an intimate basement bar setting.
From Poker Nights and dedicated vinyl evenings, to one-off live performances and regular band nights, this East London venue will continuously offer its guests a place to hang out and experience much more than just cocktails. As well as being the hub of London’s young jazz scene, the band’s aim is to use Kansas Smitty’s to showcase some of the best talent around, opening up Londoners’ eyes to genres they wouldn’t normally listen to, broadening musical horizons.
On the 24th March, Kansas Smittys will be hosting an unforgettable evening with the UK’s best-loved gypsy swing ensemble, Trio Manouche.

Trio Manouche’s set brings together the core repertoire of gypsy guitar legend Django Reinhardt with the band’s own foot-tapping arrangements of trad swing greats such as Nat King Cole, and bandleader Simon Harris’s highly acclaimed original material.
