"The final act of the evening and of the entire festival was the illustrious Shakatak. Rarely has a group enjoyed so much success in a jazz field but tonight we were given insight into why they are held in such high regard. They are consummate professionals with seemingly unlimited stamina and an instinctive ability to hold an audience…tonight they proved they are timeless." – Buzz Magazine
"This music still glows as brightly as that first hearing…Shakatak aren’t just a band, they were the soundtrack to our lives" – Ronnie Scott’s House Magazine (UK)
Please note - if you like to stand and dance, then tickets in the stalls are recommended, as you can dance in by your seat. Alternatively, if you prefer to stay sitting while enjoying the show, book tickets for the Dress Circle, where the theatre does not permit standing or dancing.
