Tonight at The Ellington 11.30pm Empire with the Imperial Horns
Empire will return with the Imperial Horns at the Ellington Jazz Club after their series of successful shows earlier in the year.
Empire's performance brings top quality musicianship to mainstream audiences whilst revamping mainstream music for the more accomplished listener who appreciates talent and skill. Vocalist Ryan Thornicroft's impeccably trained voice and incredible ability to improvise provides an energetic front for the water-tight quintet that is Empire.
The night will feature more fresh arrangements of popular tunes with horns, plus some Empire ALL ORIGINALS and, as always, some very special guests.
