Shez Raja ft Tony Kofi 'Tales from the Punjab'

606 Club
Covid 19 Information
“There is probably no club proprietor in the world who has taken on the responsibilities of making his club rule-compliant and safe for both the musicians and the audience with the seriousness and determination that [he] has.”

Although all of the legal restrictions governing Covid protocols have now been removed, we are heeding Government advice to Open Up carefully and gradually.

As a result, a number of our existing protocols will remain in place, these include:

:: staff will continue to wear masks when operating on the floor
:: credit card machines will be regularly sanitized
:: we will keep our customer facing sanitizers at the entrance to the Club, next to the toilets etc
: we will continue to operate our Intake and Extract system. This is a system that pulls air in from outside and expels it to the outside, as recommended and which is separate from our Air Conditioning system
:: we will continue to operate our "traffic light" system for the toilets, which lets customers know when the toilet they wish to use is occupied. This will now, however, be informative rather than compulsory as previously

changes that we are making will be:

:: with a view to our policy of gradual normalisation and avoiding overcrowding we have now increased the capacity of the venue from the previously restricted 65 covers to around 90 (depending on table configurations). This is still around 20 covers less than our pre Covid numbers.
:: we will continue to display the NHS QR Code which we will be inviting customers to use, but utilisation of the Code will no longer be compulsory
:: we will invite customers to wear face masks on arriving, when moving around the venue and leaving, but again this will no longer be compulsory

These are all simple, non-intrusive, measures which we hope will continue to make your visit to the Club both enjoyable and safe.

“Chic, contemporary and groove-laden” - The Musician

From the Northwest of England, Shez Raja is a seriously talented electric bassist whose work in a fascinating mix of Indo-jazz, funk and groove styles has propelled him to the forefront of the UK jazz scene, drawing comparisons to electric bass legend Jaco Pastorius. The last four years have been a turning point for Raja - from the release of the critically- acclaimed albums Journey to Shambhala (ft guitar genius Wayne Krantz and Indian percussion guru Trilok Gurtu) and Gurutopia (ft global jazz legends Mike Stern and Randy Brecker), an ‘Inside The Mind’ feature on BBC Radio 3's Jazz Line-Up, to performing at the Royal Festival Hall for EFG London Jazz Festival and to a 800 capacity crowd at Islington Assembly Hall in London. For Shez’ latest record - “Tales from the Punjab’ released on prestige label Ubuntu Music - he digs deep into his rich South Asian heritage to create his most exquisite and heartfelt recording to date. Inspired by ancient ragas, traditional melodies and free improvisations, the music creates a bridge between cultures with beautiful, exotic and timeless sounds. The first set will consist of music from the album, while the second will include favourite tracks from Shez’s considerable back catalogue. This wouldn’t be possible without the talents of award-winning singer Japjit Kaur and tabla maestro Gurdain Rayatt joining the band for this special show. And, in addition to Kieron Garrett (keyboards) & Sophie Alloway (drums), Shez has also asked internationally renowned, critically acclaimed saxophonist Tony Kofi to be his special guest. This performance promises to be a mesmerizing and unique experience – highly recommended.
