Preview: Simon Says… Charity Night @ The Jazz Cafe (London, Thursday 1st March 2018)  

Simon Says

Good music for a good cause! On the 1st of March head down to The Jazz Cafe in Camden for a five-hour-long event celebrating the memory of Simon Goss and collecting funding for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

Founder of Wah Wah 45s and a DJ at Jazz Cafe for 25 years next to social worker and inspiring figure for the London music scene and beyond, Simon Goss has left behind many good memories and plenty of friends willing to pay their tributes to this inspirational figure.

To understand how inspiring Simon was, just skim through the names of the musicians performing on Thursday’s bill.

You’ll find a profusion of talented musicians and DJs like Afrobeat master Dele Sosimi, electronic producer Hunrosa, soul & jazz singer/songwriter and musician Julia Biel, the funky eclecticism of Hector Plimmer, referential names like Jon Moore (from Coldcut) and Steve Cobby (from Fila Brazillia), a Wah Wah 45s “best of” and many, many more…

…just try to not forget that it’s not only about music.
