We are delighted to welcome back the fabulous Ronnie Scott’s All Stars for a special live concert at St Mary’s Church Rye, East Sussex.
We had the pleasure of presenting this amazing group of talented musicians at the 2017 August festival where they entertained and thrilled the sell-out audience.
Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of one of the world’s most iconic music venues, the Ronnie Scott’s All Stars take to the road with their ‘Ronnie Scott’s Story’ tour.
Hosted and performed by the award-winning Ronnie Scott’s All-Stars, led by the Club’s Musical Director, this is a unique evening celebrating the music and history of Ronnie Scott’s and is a must for any music fan.
Ronnie Scott’s All Stars combine classic music from the jazz greats who have performed at Ronnie Scott’s since its opening in 1959, such as Count Basie and Miles Davis.
‘Outstanding players. For poise, balance and swing they’re a joy to listen to’ The Observer
‘Full-on brilliance’ The Guardian
We gratefully acknowledge the support of our concert partners Gaby Hardwicke Solicitors.

Situated in the heart of the citadel, St Mary’s has stood for the best part of 1000 years and is home to the oldest still-functioning pendulum clock in the country . It has some fine stained glass, including a window designed by the pre-Raphaelite Burne-Jones in the north aisle and offers breathtaking views over the surrounding area and coast from its tower.
