Originals, post-bop, modern, Latin and standards
An exciting lineup of experienced professionals cutting their own groove with an increasing profile in the UK.
Led by ex TV/Theatre MD, Composer, GPQ covers a lot of eras (it's fun and works well with a cross section of jazz audiences). A huge repertoire including Post-Bebop, Cool, Ambient, Latin and some originals together with sound FX and ambience appeals to varied crowds .
Stylistically, think Miles, Parker, Hancock, Corea, Coltrane, Hubbard, Dameron, Gershwin, Ellington, Fats Waller.........
The quartet is also a classy feature for Weddings and Corporate events playing the more popular standards, however, great tunes as they are, for the serious jazz venue, whilst still remaining very accessible to all types of audiences, they enjoy playing more adventurous material.
Known as the ‘People’s Park’, Victoria Park is one of London’s favourite open spaces. Stretched over a huge 86.18 hectares, this swath of the outdoors is nestled entirely in Tower Hamlets
There are two expansive lakes (one with a Chinese pagoda island), a boating pond and Vicky Park is wonderful for youngsters: the V&A Playground is equipped with swings and other bits and bobs to play on and the fantastically designed Pools Playground encourages creative play. It’s also the place to go for outdoor pursuits with tennis courts, a bowling green and running track, plus football and cricket pitches. And if you work up a thirst? There's the Pavilion Café, where you can grab a bite to eat before kicking back in the splendour of Pennethorne's lovely vision.
Victoria Park is a key link in a green corridor that stretches from the River Thames at Limehouse, along the Regents Canal and through Mile End Park, along with the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park virtually next door. The park is bordered on its northern boundary by the London Borough of Hackney.
The Victorian Bandstand is an original feature of the park and nestles in the Eastern side near Crown Gate.
