'Ziggy's Get's it Right' says the inimitable soul-jazz vocalist Mica Paris on one of her numerous performances under the Ziggy's World Jazz Club banner. In April 2012, as professional musicians and local residents, we (vocalist Josie Frater and drummer Steve Taylor), decided to present live Jazz nights at the Dugdale Centre, a newly opened arts space in Enfield Town.
Having previously run such a club in Great Portland Street W1 years before, we believed we could recreate it successfully in Enfield. Having lived here since 1997, we longed for some great live music locally. We felt confident our tried and tested brand and our many musical connections would come together to offer a space in Enfield where local and London-wide fans of first class Jazz and World music would not only feel welcome but would add Ziggy's to their regular musical calendar. We turned the studio theatre into a Ziggy's version of the best Jazz Clubs - Ronnie Scott's, Pizza Express Soho and the likes. Tables, candles, and standout Ziggy's logo onstage, the scene was set for some of the best evenings of live professional music that London and beyond could offer.
Our customers love it. Our audiences have grown consistently as has our mailing list of fans. We like to mix-up what we offer musically, everything from Hard swinging big band, Latin, Funk, Jazz voice – to eclectic world-jazz-folk, Jazz Tap and even Flamenco. Now, after seven brilliant, music-filled years of Ziggy's at the Dugdale Centre, we are extremely excited to announce that Ziggy's World Jazz is moving to The Chickenshed, Chase Side N14. We will be offering everything that our loyal Ziggy's fans have come to expect from us PLUS easier parking, food on offer for the Jazz/Dining experience and a big PLUS - we're closer to the tube.
We expect our audience to continue growing in this exciting new venture for Ziggy's and ours and your favourite Jazz and World musicians are already lining up to play for you. Launch night - 31stMay, features top UK Jazz Diva, Tina May plus dazzling saxophonist Vasilis Xenopoulos with Steve Taylor Trio. June 28th, World-Connections Night with joyful Samba & Bossa Nova from Mishka Adams and Beto Caletti PLUS Jazz-pop-folk from Frater & Taylor. July 26th hails the return of BBC Jazz Award-winning vocalist and raconteur Ian Shaw. Please see website for details www.ziggysclub.com. Box Office: 0208 292 9222
