Gig Guide


"Sound Check"

From 15 to 23 June 2019 during The Crypt opening times.

Private view - Saturday 15 June 7pm

An exhibition of photographs taken by con-artist and photographer Daniel Devlin at Jazzlive at The Crypt for the past 18 months, mostly during the soundcheck when musicians tend to be more relaxed and spontaneous. "I have always been interested in photographing people and how they interact with each other and capturing those moments of connection. Jazz is perfect for this. And it's been a privilege to be able to photograph such great musicians at Jazzlive at The Crypt especially now when there's such a buzz about the South London Jazz scene".
