The Quartier Latin of Camberwell

Sarah Ellen Hughes writes:

Sunday evening sees the quaint French bistro Le Petit Parisien transformed into the most happening jazz hub in South East London. Booked by the same organisation that books Jazz Live @ The Crypt – Camberwell’s answer to Chelsea’s 606 Club – it’s no surprise that the jazz is always of the highest standard.

The night is labelled ‘On The Up’ – perhaps a reference to the continuing regeneration plans of Camberwell and the surrounding areas. Regular musicians include vibraphonist Jim Hart, drummer Pete Cater and flautist supreme Gareth Lockrane.

A weekly gig. No entrance fee. That’s all down to Simon Fernsby – regular guitarist here, and MD of the On The Up house band. Well worth a visit.

September line-up:
5 Tommaso Starace Quartet
12 Marama Café Band
19 Bob Martin with the On The Up House band
26 Tony Kofi with the On The Up House band

Sunday evenings 7:30pm Free entry 16 Grove Lane, Camberwell SE5 8SY
