American Jazz band The Hot Sardines perform their raucous live show as part of In the Round.

Take a blustery brass front line, add a salty stride piano in the timeless image of Fats Waller, a frontwoman with the attitude and style of a 30s cabaret diva, and you have The Hot Sardines. And that’s not to mention the tap dancer.

The Sardine sound is steeped in hot jazz and gypsy swing for an infectious marriage of early-American jazz and French culture.

Now in its fourth year, In the Round is our series of one-off intimate seated gigs that put you closer to the music. See the full line-up here.

The opportunities I’ve received as a result of the Roundhouse have changed my performance career.
