Cafe Society Swing returns to Hideaway to tell the true story of the legendary New York nightclub which promoted racial equality and great music. If you love swing, blues and jazz, Cafe Society Swing will delight you — food for the ears, heart and feet. Featuring rising star trumpeter Yazz Ahmed who newly joins the Cafe Society Swing team in this swinging celebration of the first racially-mixed club in New York — which opened 80 years ago, in 1938! Yazz joins a powerful horn section of Dave Bitelli, Nathanial Cross and Tony Kofi, with stellar vocalists Vimala Rowe and Ciyo Brown and pianist / MD Alex Webb, 'Fabulous' — Financial Times.

‘A genuine treat’ — The Times (****)

‘Fabulous jazz… Alex Webb’s script crackles with a New York irony that draws you in to a world of business acumen, lofty ideals and political intrigue’ — Financial Times (****)

‘A balm for the soul, though the story it tells is bittersweet’ — New York Times (Critic’s Pick)
