VOODOO DOLL'S

I am excited to announce my new club night, VOODOO DOLL'S, which is launching on Saturday 26th July.

I plan to make this the best club in London Town and hope that you will join me each month.

There will be killer live bands and the very best DJs playing a mix of rhythm & blues, swing, rock 'n' roll & jump jive.

The venue has a spectacular view along the Thames and the drinks are very reasonable indeed.

So, put on your gladrags and come and cut a rug each month at VOODOO DOLL'S.

Please see here for more information.

I'm also delighted to announce that I will be back teaching in central London when I launch my new SUMMER SWING SESSIONS.

These will take place every Wednesday from 30th July to 3rd September.
