About the event
Ho Ho Hello
Join us for a night of festive fun to help raise money to help children in Gaza.
Join us in our festively themed Bunker space with Jay Phelps on Trumpet and percussion as we work our way through the funkier side of Christmas with Christmas hits from Booker.T. & the M.G.’s, Otis Redding Isaac Hayes and many more from the Stax records output and cool cuts from James Brown's funky Christmas.
And of course, a Christmas sprinkling of stone cold classics from wham, Wizard and the old school lot we've known and loved for years.
Master of ceremonies is London based trumpeter and DJ Jay Phelps who has performed with some of the world’s top artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Shabaka Hutchings, Amy Winehouse and Wizkid.
With an instantly recognisable warm and projecting trumpet tone, Phelps is a household name on the international Jazz scene with worldwide streams exceeding 500k and his DJ sets are becoming legendary.
We're pitching this night as a wholesome mix , somewhere between karaoke, an open mic and an old East End knees up.
We will have a screen up showing lyrics so everyone can join in and we will be actively encouraging audience participaton
