HENRYBOTHAM.jpg

5:00pm - 6:00pm / EARLY EVENING FREE GIG | DOORS 5PM | HAPPY HOUR 5-7PM | GIG 5-6PM

As part of our Saturday early evening live music gigs, we welcome Henry Botham back to the club for his Piano Gumbo Gig!

Frequent visitors to M&P's will recognise Henry Botham as a band member in both The Nightcreatures and Mr. Wilson's Second Liners. Two great big bands who are always very popular with our guests. In August last year, we saw Henry perform a solo piano set at HOME and we were blown away by his raw talent for New Orleans style piano playing. We've only ever heard him play in a full band and this stripped back solo set left us wanting more. 

So this evening, following in the footsteps of Jelly Roll Morton, Dr John and James Booker, the New Orleans tradition of recreating a full band using just piano is continued by Henry. Like his heroes before him he draws upon a wide and unusual repertoire taken from various sources and all brought together under the umbrella of New Orleans piano. Traditional Spirituals, old time Blues, Jazz, stride Piano, Rock, Latin American and Pop songs all contribute to the myriad of styles used to cook up this hot spicy Piano Gumbo.
