Latchepen is a London based band born out of a collective admiration of Django Reinhardt and all that swings. The word Latchepen is an exclamation of happiness and contentment in the Romani language.
Acoustic by nature but with projection and a heart beat that can rival any amp or drum, this is jazz on a string with influences ranging from Romani music to bebob. Latchepen plays on the 3rd Sunday of every month at Jamboree
We've got a new album out now!
Matt was born in Yorkshire and grew up in Scotland. He found jazz by listening to his grandad playing down the pub. Likes a whisky.
Kourosh is a virtuoso guitarist with an unhealthy obsession for Keith Jarrett. Of Irish and Iranian descent. Knows a lot of Disney songs.
When Jeremie isn't playing jazz guitar he's doing research in applied maths. He's also the only known Frenchman to have been born in Reading.
Simon plays bass for pretty much everyone in London. He is very much partial to expensive coffee and high quality beer.
