| FREE before 7pm £7 after

Following in the footsteps of modern New Orleans funk bands such as Galactic and Trombone Shorty, and drawing inspiration from Mardi Gras Indians and classic outfits such as James Brown, The Meters and Rebirth Brass Band, The Big Smoke Family have dedicated themselves to the funky sounds of New Orleans with a unique blend of horns, street beats, scratching and original compositions.
Electrifying performers and with credits that include Dr. John, Maceo Parker, Zigaboo, Courtney Pine and Joss Stone the BSF are some of the UK’s funkiest musicians.�
They can regularly be seen playing their residency at Ronnie Scott’s and The Magic Garden or at clubs like, Pizza Express LIVE, Hootanany and at Festivals like LJF, Bestival and Ealing blues.

DJ Manafiesta performs a danceable mix of Electro-Latin, Balkan & Afro-Diaspora beats, unified in a folkloric root within the broad church of ‘Global Bass’. From Punky free-culture origins, Manafiesta has played across Colombia, Mexico and South America, Europe, New York and more, gathering diverse and unique beats with an energy and love for the music.

The Magic Garden – COVID-19 UPDATE


To all of our wonderful customers,

As people across the UK adjust to life during these extraordinary times surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, pubs throughout our nation have suffered declining patronage and, unfortunately, the Magic Garden is no exception.  As a result, we at the Magic Garden have been left with little choice and have made the decision to cancel all upcoming music and entertainment events effective immediately and until further notice. We value all of our customers and staff and make this decision for the benefit of all who enjoy our establishment.  We will be watching the daily updates from the government and will resume entertainment once we are confident to do so.  In the meantime, we welcome all those who would like to come and see us, have a drink and say hello.
