The Kansas Smitty’s House Band

The Kansas Smitty’s House Band logo

The Kansas Smitty’s House Band have big plans for 2018. This seven-piece lineup have a  series of all-original EPs in the pipeline, recorded at their Broadway Market bar, as well as appearances at North Sea Jazz Festival and Cheltenham Town Hall in their tour schedule. The band continue to play to their East London home crowd and audiences further afield, all while relentlessly playing, writing and recording together. 

During the past year, the Kansas Smitty’s House Band cemented their status on the contemporary jazz scene. They played their second sold out show at Shoreditch Town Hall, held a late-night residency at Cheltenham Jazz Festival, and hosted a four day stage takeover at boutique festival The Good Life Experience. 


As Cerys Matthews says, ‘they dance to the beat of their own drum’. Don’t take her word for it, come and experience this young jazz powerhouse for yourself.
