Moscow Drug Club is a curious place, where elements of 1930s Berlin Cabaret, Hot Club de France, Nuevo tango and Gypsy Campfire meet, have a few drinks and stagger arm in arm into the darkness of some cobbled street in eastern Europe, on a mission to find the bar where Django Reinhardt and Tom Waits are having an after hours jam with the local Tziganes…

Moscow Drug Club formed in Bristol, when North American chanteuse Katya Gorrie and International guitar virtuoso Denny Ilett stumbled into a pub and met a Django guitarist named Dave Archer. Finding that they each had a passion for the swing music of the 30s and 40s, and the Parisian songwriters of the 50s, an idea began to form in their minds. Teaming up with classical violinist John Pearce and double bassist Andy Crowdy, the five-piece was complete Combining original material with songs by the likes of Jacques Brel, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Bertolt Brecht and Duke Ellington, Moscow Drug Club have wowed crowds across the UK with their intoxicating and infectious sound. Previous performances include Womad, Larmer Tree, Marlborough Jazz festival and the Royal Albert Hall. Early booking is advised!
