The Kerouac Shack Pop Up Restaurant / Shake! 45rpm Launch Party For Smith & The Honey Badgers

Saturday 4th October sees an exciting new music & food pop up from team behind The Gastronome at a secret location in North London.

"The Kerouac Shack" will be taking over a 1950's garage for an evening of fine dining propelled to you by some of the best blues music modern day London has to offer.

I'll be guest DJing at the event in support of not one but two massive acts who will be performing live on the night at this great venue!

First up is Dollar Bill & His One Man Band, an act that has been making huge waves across Europe on the R&B, Blues and Rockabilly scene with his innovative act and stage presence.

His recent live album "Live At The Shake'Em On Down Club" released on a lovely shiny 10" Vinyl & CD through Rollin' Records showcases what a talented musician and excellent showman he is!

Next up, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, a crossover R&B, Country & Jump Blues influenced outfit from North London who have been causing a big stir recently having supported the likes of The Stereophonics, Billy Bragg, Mark Ronson & Razorlight.

They've just finished a successful festival program and are now back in the studio recording a new LP which should hit the racks in January 2015.

As if the musical treats weren't enough, Chef Joseph Curtis will be laying on a 5 course Americana inspired meal to ensure it's not just your ears that are filled with goodness!
