From Harlem's Savoy Ballroom of the 1930s to the underground jazz clubs of '60s Soho and beyond.
Zédel favourites, Jonathan D Ellis and Jodie Jacobs, bring you an evening of Torch Songs echoing back to a bygone era of true style, from Billie Holiday to Chet Baker, with brand new arrangements by acclaimed composer Michael Webborn. Watching them together on stage is like gatecrashing the best party you shouldn't be at!
So, reach for the Bourbon and give in to what promises to be a night of storytelling, sharp suits and smoky vocals; the perfect way to finish the weekend.
"The blues can feel really, really good!" - Nina Simone
In December 2017, Ellis signed to Roven Records, New York. His album Grow Old With Me is currently available on ITunes & Amazon Music.
"Ellis' wit is drier than a Martini. In an intimate Cabaret Theatre that offers no refuge for the talentless, he is a British Star with a Capital S!" - Village Voice NY
"Funny, shy, rebellious, endearing, honest and sassy all at the same time. Lots of people can stand up and belt out big notes... but Jacobs has qualities nobody can teach you" - West End Frame
