The Silver Ghosts live performance The repertoire evokes the breathless and high spirited dance gigs of the 1920s 30s and 40s. A weave of quirky, upbeat numbers like Rose Murphy's 'Busy Line', the risqué 'Jack I'm Mellow', polite dance orchestrations like 'My Woman' and Harry Warren's sophisticated 'Too Many Tears', together with some familiar standards but performed in their original 'pre cold war', jazz ensemble style.

The outfit is normally a 7 piece swing orchestra, but will be performing as a quintet on this occasion. Over the past couple of years the outfit has performed at high profile venues like Ronnie Scott's bar, The 100 Club, and The Savoy as well as having the fortuity to have recorded a session for the BBC at the beautiful Art Deco premises at Bush House, just before the latter moved to their new location.

The Blues Kitchen

The Candlelight Club is a clandestine pop-up cocktail party in a secret London venue, a stunning, tucked-away den with a 1920s speakeasy flavour, completely lit by candles. Each event offers an elegant cocktail menu, sophisticated dining options all night, plus dancing to live music and vintage DJing. Sometimes there is also cabaret, dance acts, burlesque and more…

Your jazz age musical revivalists' choice of numbers mixes fun and interesting dancable obscurities that were big hits of the period, performing a mix of high spirited winners and adding familiar swingin' faves for your dancing pleasure. 
The Blues Kitchen

In addition to a well-stocked bar of exquisite cocktails, Champagne, wine and beer, the kitchens will also be open all night. Why not choose the pre-order fine-dining option, which gives you a three-course set menu? There will also be a menu of platters and bar snacks available to order on the night, and it is also possible to reserve tables with Champagne but without the set menu.

The establishment even sell cigars, so you can sit outside in the private candlelit courtyard, puffing on a stoogie like a Mob Boss.

Tickets to The Candlelight Club cover entry and entertainment but do not guarantee a seat at a table. Some of the tables in the venues are freely available on a first come, first served basis. However, seating is limited (about enough for two thirds of the guests) so if you wish to reserve a table you may do so for an extra charge, which includes Champagne on arrival.

A small table costs £65 (on top of your ticket price), includes a bottle of the house Champagne and can seat up to five people.

A large table is £130, includes two bottles of house Champagne and can seat up to ten people.
