This event has passed

Two dancers perform on stage.

New Regency Orchestra has been shaking up a storm in the last two years with its mighty twelve-piece horn section, lock-tight five-piece rhythm section and the NRO dancers bringing a new energy and new arrangements to the golden age of mambo and latin jazz.

Inspired by New York’s melding of Jazz and Latin from the 50s to the 70s, when the sound of jazz luminaries Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker collided with the Cuban roots of Chano Pozo and Machito, New Regency Orchestra add a contemporary London spin with the city’s best Latin Music and Jazz talent driving each other to greater heights.
