Live Jazz @ Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, London

We had the privilege of playing (jazz trio) at a private party last night at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen.  Needless to say the food was epic – but the staff were also SUPER friendly and helpful.  Congrats to our generous clients on their celebrations too!  We’re now interested in actually going and eating there to get the full experience.  Delicious. -BF
