During its eighty years under London’s legendary Oxford Street everyone from Louis Armstrong to rock icons the Rolling Stones, Sex Pistols and Chuck Berry have played the historic 100 Club.
In Ace of Clubs, with foreword by Jools Holland, we read its story in the words of the people who came to the club to play, work, dance or just listen to the music.
Handsomely illustrated in colour, this is the first comprehensive story of one of the world’s longest-running clubs, its seventy-year jazz history and its transformation into the greatest grass-roots music venue in the UK.
Now granted special status it is ranked alongside Abbey Road Studios, Jane Austen’s home and Shakespeare’s birthplace. The 100 Club’s story is an inspiring and frequently hilarious must-read for music fans everywhere.
