From the first moment Antonio walks on stage to rapturous applause, a humble smile on his face, guitar in hand, you know you are in the presence of a true artist and are in for an evening with a touch of magic. And as the first deep, warm, intense notes float through the auditorium, you can hear a pin drop and feel the sonic spell of his guitar weaving through the room. As one critic put it “Imagine an Italian hybrid of Michael Hedges, John McLaughlin and Django Rheinhardt ... ferocious, rampaging, controlled power, meticulous precision and clarity of expression ... astonishing musical personality” Doors open at 6pm best seats allocated on arrival - performance approx 7pm -9.50pm to comply with covid rules

My London – Evening Standard – Cressida Bonas says, "What’s the most romantic thing someone’s done for you?"
"I love being taken to jazz bars and particularly a wonderful club in Battersea, called Le QuecumBar. I always have the perfect evening there — it’s intimate with live Gypsy swing music. "
Wedding reception review
We chose Le QuecumBar for our wedding reception and everything went beyond our expectations.
If you are looking for a venue with a real soul and a great atmosphere, this is the place... On arrival Sylvia, and the team welcomed us all with a 'state of art' Bellini, then we had the buffet which was very good quality, generous in quantity and so much variety (a brilliant combination of European, North African and Asian dishes).
... the atmosphere was magic. ....our guests enjoyed the beautiful rear garden .. with the beautiful plants and the lights ...
All our friends were so happy they discovered such a hidden gem in London.
Thank you ...for having made this day truly special and unforgettable!**
