Live At Zédel, Soho's unique live entertainment concept at Crazy Coqs and Brasserie Zédel, announces their new 2019 autumn/winter season produced in partnership with Fane Productions.
James Albrecht says: "It is three years since Fane Productions began programming London's art deco gem for live music and cabaret. This autumn/winter season builds on our passion for platforming celebrated global artists as well as the most exciting emerging talent. Reflecting on our journey, I am proud to say Crazy Coqs is becoming synonymous with truly memorable nights out, a distinctive venue that artists and audiences in increasing numbers seek out for intimate live experiences. This season we bring you many Crazy Coqs favourites, an international programme for the London Jazz Festival, a packed festive line-up and at least 2 UK household names making their cabaret and Crazy Coqs debuts."
