This group performs every fortnight at The Outhouse Bar in Edinburgh featuring the core group of musicians: Martin Kershaw, Graeme Stephen, Mario Caribé, and Tom Bancroft.
It has grown since beginning in 2014 into essential listening on Edinburgh's live scene with a constant range of well attended creative gigs from entirely improvised concerts through to tribute nights to great composers like Charles Mingus and Kenny Wheeler. Most weeks there are guest musicians featuring established and up and coming musicians from the Scottish music scene and beyond which have included Steve Hamilton, Phil Bancroft, Laura MacDonald, Kevin MacKenzie, Pete Johnstone, Julian Arguëlles, Rachael Cohen, Chris Greive, George Burt, Phil O’Malley, Brian Kellock and more.
