Mouthful O' Jam December 14th is going to be a real seasonal corker, as not only is it our Christmas Special, it is also our 4th year anniversary! The evening is going to kick off at 7.30 when our American swing dance instructor will teach you to shake your shimmy to the hot music and revels the evening has to offer. After the lesson the dancing starts and our underground DJ's Tim Hellzapoppin, Kid Krupa and Swing Maniac will take you through your paces, in fact these guys are so far underground they are going to kick your butt over to the dark side, playing original 78rpm recordings on vintage equipment, where jazz, swing, jump and blues are the order of the day. If you need a rest and you will need a rest you can sit, relax and chat in the chit chat chatty area to re-coup in the best original tavern in town. Then you can go back into the fray and dance to the most killa' music your ears have ever heard. Later on from 11.30, a late set by the best jazz band in town 'The Dakota Jim Band' feat Ewan Bleach on sax, Dakota Jim on accordion and clarinet and Louisa on vocal. Yes folks - Mouthful O' Jam December is going to be Killa Killa Killa, so come early. Address: The Salisbury Pub, 1 Ground Parade, Green Lanes, N4 1JX Only £7 entry! Visit: for more info :-)
