PizzaExpress Live presents more than 1,500 shows each year across a number of venues including PizzaExpress Live in Holborn, the historic PizzaExpress Jazz Club in Soho, and The Pheasantry in Chelsea. Live music has always been an important part of PizzaExpress. Founder Peter Boizot was a jazz lover and constantly sought ways to include music in his restaurants, whether at PizzaExpress branches from the late 1960s, and at his other ventures Pizza on the Park and Kettner's from the 1970s. The flagship venue at 10 Dean Street, London has hosted internationally acclaimed music since its first ticketed shows in May 1976. A selective list of artists we have worked with over the years includes Gregory Porter, Benny Carter, Amy Winehouse, Brad Mehldau, Bill Wyman, Bud Freeman, Monty Alexander, Jamie Cullum, Brian May, Rick Wakeman, Milt Hinton, Van Morrison, Barry Harris, Cybill Shepherd, Melody Gardot, Steve Ross, Art Farmer, Diana Krall, e.s.t., Larry Carlton, Buddy Tate, George Shearing, Adelaide Hall, Benny Waters, Charlie Watts, Mose Allison, Anita O'Day, Doc Cheatham, GoGo Penguin, and many more PizzaExpress Live is made up of a small team of experienced music industry professionals, always seeking to present the highest quality music in intimate venues – all topped off with great pizza!
First built in 1931, this magnificent venue has recently undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment to create an unrivalled pub, club, restaurant, live music and entertainment venue plus 15 stunning boutique bedrooms. Five beautiful bars offer the finest artisan spirits, craft beers, cocktails, wine and Champagnes. Our restaurant focuses on using the best ingredients from the British Isles, our fish is responsibly sourced and our vegan and vegetarian dishes could convince the staunchest of carnivores. Our Ballroom and Cocktail Bar provide the ultimate places to party whilst the iconic stage in our Club Room, once home to the likes of Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Eddie Izzard and Michael McIntyre, will present a hot bed of up and coming creative talent, just as it always has.
Now owned and run by Siren Craft Brewery, the George & Dragon is a family-owned, independent country pub known for its exceptional cooking and range of award-winning local beers, based in easy reach of Reading, Wokingham, Shinfield and surrounding areas. It has a traditional, relaxed atmosphere with warm tones, open fires, original brickwork and exposed beams. Outside, it’s situated in beautiful Berkshire countryside, with views and walks all around the garden. The pub has a vibrant local community but is also popular with visitors from further afield, as it makes for a lovely day out into the peaceful countryside while being easy to reach. The pub itself dates back to the 17th Century and is a Grade 2 listed building. It has served many purposes over the years – being a coach house around the turn of the 20th Century, before becoming an excellent watering hole. Since then, the work of the chefs over the past 20 years or so has earned it a reputation as a gastro-pub. We are working with Jamma to run regular live music events and artist showcases at our venue.
Located in the heart of Wokingham, The Rose Inn is a welcoming pub to the local community. Serving fresh food menu inspired by the Mediterranean, traceable from field to fork, along with daily specials, dishes include steaks and fish cooked in our charcoal-fuelled grill, as well as authentic Neapolitan pizzas cooked in our wood-fired oven, pasta dishes and home comforts. For families, our bespoke children’s menu with accompanying activity pack offers a variety of choices, whilst most dietary requirements are met with ease. We are looking to book artists for regular live events.
Lounges was founded in 2002 by a trio of longstanding friends, Dave Reid, Alex Reilley and Jake Bishop. Having spent years in the restaurant and bar trade – not to mention just as many propping up the bars in Bristol (all of course in the name of research) – they decided it was time they did their own thing. The motivation was simple and very selfish; they wanted somewhere to drink themselves. We are looking to book artists on a weekly basis through Jamma for our live music nights and offer £100 fixed fee for x1 hour set. Artists will need to bring their own PA.
I met the Jamma crew at a gig in Manchester, and after getting to know them was invited to be the regional 'Jambassador' for Essex, UK. As an artist it's been great and they really helped me to push my latest single. As a 'Jambassador; they sent me a ton of free merch and personalised business cards and pay for me to check out gigs in my region to sign up artists and venues! I also was invited to perform on their professionally filmed podcast series, 'The Jamma Show' which was not only great fun but also a great way to get my music out to my fans!
We have recently signed up to Jamma and love that we can have a dedicated page for our band and also individual pages allowing us to advertise ourselves for solo work and showcase our material as a group and as separate band members. It's also great to be able to find potential new band members and stand in DEP musicians as and when we need them

I registered with Jamma before the launch and I was lucky enough to perform at their '331' launch event. Since going live I have used the website to build an artist page and upload all my content as well as connect to find paid gigs! It's super easy to use and they have always been there to support me whenever needed. Not only have I found paid work, but I have also been featured on podcasts and various special marketing projects which have been great for exposure, especially in these uncertain times. Jamma also takes 0% commission on anything I earn through the platform, and it's even free to use right now!
