On This Week


Cooking up a hot gumbo of New Orleans R&B, Tim Penn brings the sounds of the American Deep South to TAM with his band The Second Line. Step back in time to the Jazz bars of New Orleans with Tim and his band.

Tim Penn is one of the most ‘in demand’ keyboard players in the roots, songwriter & blues scenes. Going back to the 1970s, he was a member of Twickenham legend Dorris Henderson’s Eclection and also the Kevin Coyne band alongside Andy Summers (The Police) and Gordon Smith (Described by John Peel as "The foremost white Blues guitarist in the world“)


Don't miss out on the electrifying sound of Marcus Praestgaard Trio, as they bring a fresh and innovative fusion of rock, jazz, and blues to the stage. Featuring John Jones on Fender Bass and Jack Thomas on Drums, this power trio will also debut some of their original music that will keep you grooving all night long.


Our weekly Latin Jam is back at TAM! The Latin Jam celebrates all styles of Latin American music. A house band formed of London's best Latin musicians transform the TAM into a hot Cuban club and welcomes all musicians and dancers to join them in la Fiesta!


An evening with Dino Baptiste & Dan “Bam Bam” Watt at TAM Elephant & Castle, featuring the greatest hits of Rock & Roll Pianists from the 1950s and beyond.

Dino presents his archive of the best Rock & Roll hits performed by his idols Ray Charles, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino and more that were so iconic, influencing his own piano playing skills and the audiences that enjoyed this vibrant style of music through the decades. His own unique turn on the hits such as Great Balls of Fire, Blueberry Hill, Good Golly Miss Molly and Messaround captures every nuance and energy of that era culminating in a show that will have you dancing all night!

Dino is joined by Daniel “Bam Bam” Watt on drums!
