For this special LJF gig, we will present a double bill of our own bands: Quadraceratops and Entropi. Doors 8pm, music 8.30/8.45pm. £5 entry. We’d love to see you there, partly also to celebrate running the gig for nearly five months!
Dee Byrne put the group together while studying at Trinity College of Music in 2010, and they explore her growing repertoire of original music. Expect heavy grooves juxtaposed with outbreaks of swing, tight arrangements framing open-ended improvisation, abstract harmony mixed with melodic departures. This will be an intergalactic evening of space sonics!

Andre Canniere – trumpet

Cath Roberts formed Quadraceratops while studying for a Masters at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2011.The band supported Get The Blessing at Camden’s Jazz Cafe as part of the 2012 London Jazz Festival. In June 2013, they played at Jazz In The Round @ The Cockpit hosted by Jez Nelson of BBC Radio 3′s ‘Jazz on 3′ programme. A few months later they appeared at the Vortex Jazz Club for the first time, playing at ReDiViDeR’s ‘I Dig Monk, Tuned’ album launch gig in September 2013 (presented by Match & Fuse). The current set of music is inspired by insects, fairground rides, underground tunnelling machines and fictional serial killers.
