At the grand age of 78, Roy Ayers remains one of the most compelling soul acts on the modern-day circuit and in recent years he's delivered excellent shows at venues across London.

The funk, soul and jazz pioneer, known as "The Godfather of neo-soul", has a huge back catalogue of hits to his name. Signature tracks "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", "Searchin'" and "Running Away" remain as fresh sounding in 2018 as they did back when they were first released. Cited by Pharrell Williams as one of his musical heroes, the legendary soul man's shows promise to be excellent showcases of his work.

Ayers, who has more sampled hits used by rappers than any other artist, will be in action for 3 nights at West London's Subterra on Thursday 1st, Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd of November. Tickets cost £25 and are available on the venue's website.
