Music at The Spice

Here at The Spice we have an eclectic range of music events running 7 days a week. For full event listings, tickets and more information about who's taking to the stage in The Backstage Bar please click on events.

Monday: Open Mic Night

Every Monday night it's our famous OPEN MIC NIGHT which has been running since 2001. An open Session for Singers, Songwriters and Musicians of all kinds to perform original material (although the odd cover version gets sneaked in from time to time!!).

We have a piano and a great PA. There isn't a house band, (it's not a karaoke session)! You'll need to provide your own accompaniment, be it guitar, didgeridoo or whatever.

Sign up time if you want to play is 6.30 pm.
It's a busy night, so get here a bit earlier if you want to be sure of a spot.
The music starts at 7.00 pm.

Tuesday: Blues Jam with Dove Jones

Tuesday nights from 8.00 pm
DOVE JONES hosts the best Blues Jam in London. Entry is £4 (£2 for musicians) and there is a drum kit, bass amp and two guitar amps and a keyboard for you to express yourself on. Just bring guitars, harps, sax's etc...
