Led by one of our favourite drummers, Mark Fletcher, Fletch’s Brew moves away from Ronnie Scott’s where they have played weekly. With a real superstar line-up.
The band plays funky jazz originals and also feature the music of Pat Metheny, Michael Brecker and some of the Weather Report classics. This is a new band which is fast becoming a regular fixture at Ronnie Scotts. Being true exponents of their art, Mark and his motley crew know how to kick it.
Mark is one of England’s most versatile drummers. “It’s all in the groove”, he says whether it’s straight ahead jazz, free improvised music, rock and world music. Often seen at the Vortex with John Etheridge, he has also provided the foundation and propulsion for the likes of Ian Shaw and many more.
Meanwhile, his band has a mouth-watering array of credits: Al Jarreau, Oasis, Pee Wee Ellis, Bill Bruford to name just a few.

March 2 2018 two iconic musicians and old friends Dave Holland and Evan Parker joined forces in a fundraiser to show, as well as give their support to the Vortex Jazz Club – a fine institution that has help many a musician at the start of their career. The club has existed without any core funding after its establishment by founder David Mossman over twenty-five years ago. The club needs financial help to keep its operations going. We hope you will show your support by taking out a membership, coming to gigs or donating. You can make a donation by clicking the “donate” tab. We also have some new fundraising T-shirts with a fab design that was commissioned by Tim Berne (Snake Oil) with graphics by Steve Byramn.
