A new monthly jazz night is coming to Richmond in September 2021.

Off the Rails is launching at what was once the legendary Crawdaddy Club, now a large bar and restaurant known as One Kew Road.

The 1960s venue was the first residency for the Rolling Stones and helped to kickstart the careers of music stars such as Eric Clapton with the Yardbirds. 

After the Stones became the house band, they quickly became so popular that the club had to move to larger premises. 

Now, the venue is going back to its roots. 

Singer Peter Jones and guitarist Clement Regert have launched the monthly jazz night, which seeks to shine a light on young and diverse talent.

The opening gig takes place on Sunday, September 12 at 8pm with events happening on the second Sunday of each month thereafter. 

The debut night will feature young instrumental group Lydian Collective.

The club is located in the upstairs bar at One Kew Road, with a maximum capacity of 80 seated and another 70 standing. 

Gig-goers will have the option of drinking and or dining at the Sunday events. 

Jones and Regert are also programming the jazz stage for this year’s free High Tide Festival in Twickenham on Sunday, September 26.

Tickets for the opening night of Off the Rails at One Kew Road will be £12 (£14 on the door).
