Buy Tickets Here 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”

ENJOY SIMPLE GENEROUS SERVINGS OF MUSIC, MOOD, WINE & FOOD THAT’S HEARTY NOT HAUGHTY

“Le QuecumBar is unique and provides an irresistible combination of live music, great food and hospitality in a setting as alluring as a coquette’s boudoir.… the interior evokes the faded elegance of pre-war Parisian café society and hosts performances by some of the world’s greatest acoustic guitarists” Live in London

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 ...

Unfortunately the band we hired for the day let us down just few hours before, but we've been immediately supported in contacting the Gypsy Dynamite Trio and this literally saved our day....the music was great, we danced till late and had such fantastic moments.

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!**

Dall'Asta/Wheatcroft

Summit meeting of two of the country's finest! John Wheatcroft is one of the UK's most respected Jazz guitarists, known as both an artist and an educator. He has performed with artists as diverse as Billy Cobham (Miles Davis), Alex Acuña, John Williams, Frank Gambale (Chick Corea), Paco Peña and Carl Verheyen (Supertramp) and has toured the world with Carl Palmer (ELP) and John Jorgenson (Elton John/ Hellecasters). John currently holds the position of Head of Guitar at BIMM London and is a visiting lecturer for the University of West London (London College of Music) and Chester University. His first book, Improvising Blues Guitar was published by Schott and received rave reviews worldwide and he’s recently released his debut acoustic album, Ensemble Futur, to critical acclaim. Filippo Dall’Asta is an Italian Gypsy jazz guitarist and composer whose progressive playing takes in a wide range of influences, from the sounds of his native Italy to traditional Indian music. He has toured and recorded with many world-class artists such as Lollo Meier, Mozes Rosenberg, Gypsy Dynamite, Harp Bazaar, Tara Minton (Björk) and The Onironauts. His touring resume covers Germany, India, Italy, France, Spain, England, Malta and Russia, with notable appearances at The Royal Albert Hall, the House of Parliament, the Tower of London, the Union Chapel, and many festivals in France and Italy. Filippo recently released his first solo album, Mediterasian, that combines the energy of Gypsy Jazz with the meditative sonorities of Indian music and was described as “one of the best instrumental albums of 2018” by LA Music Critic Awards. This will be a tour-de-force display of guitar mastery and a great show as these two luminaries ramp up the musicality to 11.
