Pinstripe Suit to perform at Nightjar

In the first of what will hopefully be regular public performances, Robin’s six-piece swing band, Pinstripe Suit, will take to the stage at Prohibition-styled Nightjar bar by Old Street on Saturday 19th November.

Often restricted to private performances, Pinstripe Suit is very excited about having the opportunity to play a rare public gig.

The ensemble, featuring bandleader Robin, Kirsty Jarvis (vocals), Gareth Lumbers (sax), Neil Penny (tpt), Vilem Hais (bass) and Claire Brock (drums), will perform two high-octane sets, featuring classic swing, and also music from the 1990’s US swing revival, as featured in films sich as Swingers and The Mask.

Advance purchase of tickets is advised as these nights often sell out before the night.
