I saw The Bright Sides at The London Improv Theatre last weekend. Very impressed. Excellent musicians and a great sound. They really have a terrific feel for the music. Looking forward to seeing and hearing them again soon.

It ain't what you do it's the way that you do it! Three talented musicians and a smooth vocalist in harmony producing a rich rhythm to fill the air with the best of jazz.
