The world has been on hold for so long and we all deserve to celebrate this Christmas in the most romantic, nostalgic and glamorous way possible!
So join us for this spectacular jazz club pop-up that marks the return of the Niels Lan Doky International Jazz Collective to The Standard Jazz Club at its original beautiful harbourfront location, on the 1st floor of the iconic green art deco building in Havnegade in Copenhagen (*).
For four Saturdays in a row, from November 27 to December 18, an international cast of amazing musicians and vocalists from the NLD IJC (including weekly guest artists) will deliver a compelling and engaging show highlighting the Christmas holiday season, based on famous songs by mainly Nat King Cole and Ray Charles, such as “Let There Be Love”, “Let The Good Times Roll”, "Winter Wonderland", “Route 66”, “For Sentimental Reasons”, “The Christmas Song” ("Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire"), “Unforgettable”, “Come Rain Or Come Shine”, “Nature Boy” and others.
Five years ago, the now legendary The Standard Jazz Club closed its doors i Havnegade, changed its name to the Niels Lan Doky International Jazz Collective and became a touring entity operating high-end jazz presentations at many different prominent venues across Denmark, including the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, the National Museum of Denmark, Sølyst, Hotel d’Angleterre, Tivoli Glassalen, Musikhuset Aarhus, Kronborg Castle and more.
But still to this day, guests at The Standard’s three restaurants often ask about the jazz club - and Niels Lan Doky reports, “We still receive messages regularly from our audiences telling us how much they loved and miss The Standard, so coming back here is the a most wonderful way to celebrate Christmas this year!”.
There are only 4 Saturdays available and only limited capacity per show. So grab your tickets now before it is too late!
Join us either for just jazz & cocktails upstairs in the jazz club or have dinner before or after the show in one of our restaurants.
