Friday night at Kanteena


Another great day at the Lancaster Jazz Festival!

Go Kojak started the night with an excellent and very funky show to an appreciative crowd.

“Go Kojak” – a stunning session from a quite-recently established North Lancs combo. Wow! This was something else, very-much funk-based jazz, the sort of sound we’re used to at this so-modern, ahead-of-the-game festival. Unpredictable and totally inspiring!

Go Kojak were amazing! Wonderful to see such a varied and energetic programme.

Romarna Campbell Trio became a duo, as sadly Mutale Chashi suffered an injury and wasn’t able to play. Feel better Mutale! However Romarna and Cenk Esen put on a great show and totally captivated our audience. Two piano/drums combos in two days!

“Romarna Campbell duo” – you so-much look forward to something that’s going to catch you out! This WAS it! Modern, syncopated themes, with Afro-beat vibes and…… so-much more! The crowd was on its feet, at the end, begging for MORE!

Spectacular gig, absolutely wonderful & so so engaging

Big thanks DJs Sie Norfolk and Shaun Foran for keeping the vibe going inbetween sets.

As always – huge thanks to the artists, our excellent voluteers, and you, our lovely audience!
