UK vocal coach, Mike King (The Voice BBC), has created a new open mic giving singers the opportunity to perform with a live band and showcase themselves in a friendly and welcoming environment.



Mike has been involved in the music industry for nearly 20 years since signing a record contract at the age of 17. He has worked as a vocal coach on The Voice UK (BBC), helped smash a Guinness World Record by conducting 5,000 singers at Wembley Arena and directs choirs worldwide. He was a lecturer at Goldsmiths University of London for 12 years and was a guest vocal tutor at the University of East London and London Metropolitan University.

His love of bringing people together through singing is the foundation for many of Mike’s diverse projects. Creating rich, emotive harmonies and inspiring singers to perform them to the highest standards is what shapes his success today whether he is enhancing the vision of an artist or artistic team or directing a community choir to raise funds for charity. Mike has an extraordinary gift that enables all who cross his path to grow in confidence and make beautiful sounds.

”London's Aydenne Simone ('Queen of Swing') sings Sarah Vaughan"


Acclaimed jazz and blues singer Aydenne Simone (dubbed 'Queen of Swing') has been wowing audiences for nearly 30 years. Jazz is her thing, and swing jazz is her life!

This show in the EFG London Jazz Festival pays tribute to one of the giants of the jazz vocal, Sarah Vaughan, 'Sassy', or 'The Divine One', as she was nicknamed. When Aydenne was just 6 years old her father (also a jazz musician) gave her a Sarah Vaughan album, “You're Mine You” produced by the great Quincy Jones and Aydenne promptly fell in love with Sarah’s voice and jazz. The rest is history.

For Aydenne to be in a position to celebrate her number one idol and her biggest jazz vocal influence in this special concert, Aydenne feels is such a privilege. Aydenne sings and swings to perfection, her voice moving effortlessly from beguiling, bold, brassy to bluesy, always with the greatest respect for the lyrics and the melody she so wonderfully projects.


Davies’ trumpet and Olly Chalk’s slinky, punchy, propulsive piano adorned the solid rhythmic pulse of Tom Dring’s bass and Gwilym Jones’ drums.

"There’s something about the way she manipulates those chords which is just incredible….. Aydenne Simone is generous with her musicians, giving them ample solo space and indeed, her own performance at this Sarah Vaughan gig was more like a soloist in a quintet than a singer with a backing band, and the songs were like blowing sessions. Her group is a tight, expert unit capable of delivering jazz on many levels."

”She is one of the few singers around today who is not a copy of someone else”
Giles Peterson – BBC Radio 1

"A fantastic evening --such talented musicians and so wonderful together ---- cannot be bettered ----- would travel to the ends of the earth to listen to them."
