“James Taylor is the best Hammond player this side of the Atlantic” – Craig Charles BBC6 FUNK AND SOUL SHOW
“Never less than an impressive demonstration of virtuosity” – Andrew Mueller, Uncut
James Taylor, one of the great British instrumentalists of his generation, has taken his trademark howling Hammond sound to the masses for over 25 years; still famed for its upbeat, energetic live shows…with no sign of slowing down. The band’s relentlessly entertaining tunes take inspiration from the rare-groove style funk, and boogaloo funk of the 60s and 70s and the band is, without a doubt, one of the most important jazz-pop crossover outfits in British live musical history today.

We make our own bread using bio-diverse, Lincolnshire grown wheat, milled in north Nottinghamshire by wind power. Our halloumi cheese is produced by an independent family business from Syria, now based in Yorkshire & is the finest we’ve tasted. All our dishes are prepared using fresh, locally sourced seasonal produce wherever possible. We have many vegan & vegetarian choices…it’s good for you, and utterly delicious! Our takeaway packaging is recyclable (except the plastic coated lids on the baked rice dishes)
Many of our recipes are based on our chef’s childhood experiences growing up in Iran. We’ve just begun to explore the wealth of delights that Middle Eastern cuisine has to offer.
Our live acts reflect the diversity of the UK and international music scene, showcasing the best jazz, blues, soul, world & folk artists.
Nottingham you are so lucky.
