Liteside – 24th September

After the toe tapping evening we had on Wednesday, courtesy of the very talented duo Jinski, we want to keep the ball rolling! We will be welcoming Liteside, a firm favourite at Caffe Portico, on Saturday 24th September.

Liteside are a Newark based band and have been playing together for the past 8 years. Their six piece outfit (3 horns, 3 rhythm) have played in all the Newark jazz festivals and at Caffe Portico on many occasions.

Liteside’s smooth, melodic tunes mean you don’t have to be a jazz buff to enjoy them; they call it “jazz for people who don’t think they like jazz”. Their foot-tapping swing & Latin tunes and smooth ballads make for sweet listening. Think Duke Ellington meets Jools Holland and you’ll be in the right area.

Follow this link to have a listen, they’ve put together a compilation to give you a flavour of what a Liteside jazz evening will be like.

Tickets are an absolute steal at £6 so pick up yours while we still have seats available!

As usual a special menu will be prepared, the food being nearly as much of a treat as the music!

We hope to see as many of you there as possible, its not a night to miss, call 07956653156 for more details.

Franc Cinelli

Franc Cinelli was a big hit at his debut appearance at Caffe portico, so we’re delighted to have him back on the 1st October.

Bucking the trend with his free-wheeling alternative folk, Franc Cinelli is the songwriters’ songwriter. From up-tempo torch songs to blues laden road journals and love-struck serenades to defiant, prison outlaw ballads; Franc has carved his own musical path.

His new album The Marvel Age has been called “A roosty, bluesy, folky confection” by R2 Magazine and “A road album evoking images of long distance car journeys through barren wastelands” By the Acoustic Magazine.

Another bargain, tickets are only £6! Available at the Caffe.

As always all our music nights will be accompanied by a specially prepared menu for the evening and as many of you know the combination of good food and music is a real treat.

At each event doors open at 7pm, food will be served from 7.30pm and the music to begin at 8.30pm.

So, make room in your calendars for some truly great nights of music at Caffe Portico.
