The Blackbyrds: Jazz-Funk & R&B Thursday 27 October 2022 21:30 Boisdale of Canary Wharf Restaurant

"Walking In Rhythm", "I Need You", "Rock Creek Park"

Reservations from 5.30pm | Live Music: 9.30pm

Assembled by legendary Donald Byrd in the mid-70s, the Blackbyrds laid the foundations for the jazz-funk movement, releasing a series of ageless albums that still serve as irresistible invitations onto the dancefloor. Cooking up some of the greasiest grooves ever heard, the band featured the finest musicians on the planet. They became one of the most influential outfits of all time with a seemingly endless succession of jazz funk classics including Rock Creek Park, Walking In Rhythm and Happy Music. Sampled by a who’s who of hip that goes from De La Soul all the way through to Massive Attack, the Blackbyrds are still at the very top of their game almost 50 years after they first got together.

Bar and heated Terrace available on the first floor for pre/post-show drinks!
