Relentlessly dodging definition, Led Bib are both a maverick jazz band and an unlikely rock quintet. Combining the energy and passion of a rock outfit with the technical ability of trained jazz musicians creates a music style and electrifying performances that make this band completely exhilarating live.

Taking their name from a protective garment used on patients during dental treatment, this Walthamstow based five-piece of twenty-somethings pride themselves on side- stepping convention, with incendiary results. The friends, who can usually be found in one another’s homes drinking tea and discussing the merits of biscuit types, have together torn apart the jazz world with their avant-jazz-euphoric-rock explosions of improvisation. And whilst fun may not be something which often comes to mind in relation to jazz, it’s the addition of this playfulness that has over years seen Led Bib throw out any jazz preconceptions and entice a whole new army of supporters to the genre. Led Bib’s uniqueness is their complete ability to appeal to all fans of good music – it’s the reason that drum and bass heads, jazz aficionados and folk and pop fans are dotted across their audiences. They have drawn references from across the musical spectrum from Captain Beefheart and John Zorn to Pink Floyd. Enjoy.

Support for the night comes from electronic experimental duo Satelliti – utterly mesmerising live!
