Ron's Speakeasy: The Equators
Entry Requirements: Over 18s only. Photo ID required.
Charlie Hart's Equators are a collective of London based R'n'B/jazz musicians, exploring the roots of the music they've spent a lifetime playing. The music, broadly speaking African-leaning R n B, is full blooded, uplifting and unprocessed.
Originating in the 1990s, these Equators are fronted by Charlie along with the astonishingly dynamic sax and harp man, Frank Mead, better known for his work with Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings.
The line-up is completed by the brilliant guitarists Ed Deane &/or Jimmy Roach, with a dream rhythm section comprising the legendary Les Morgan on drums, and virtuoso bassist Phil Scragg.
Musicianship and energy are never in doubt with these Equators. They are originals and truly irresistible. This is a good time music that can fire up any party.
