Due to 50% Landlord increase in rent, one years back rent, we’re using a method of crowd-funding to get through, now, and in the medium and long term.

Not only does it achieve this, if funded, but it’ll also help us secure more glorious years of being the sole, unique and iconic venue supporting the musicians of the genre we all love. Our project plan refocuses us, addresses some long standing issues, and will get bums on seats, which we ultimately need to sustain a rental increase. The plan will see us working even closer with the Sinti communities and we’ll work to address social inequalities through our work. All areas of our project address the needs of the venue, Le Q Records, our musicians, new and existing customers and our local community.

Recent party testimonial June 2015;

We would like to thank the staff at QuecumBar and recommend them for an excellent event, our wedding party on the 13th June this year! The food was great, the service first class, nothing was too much trouble, everyone was impressed. The music both live and recorded sounded good, the live artist Ava Golding + Trio were fantastic, the garden looked really impressive lit up at night. A great venue for a party or reception, thanks again, Ian + Nadia Dennes.

Recent party testimonial April 2015;

“Le QuecumBar is a fabulous place to hold a party. The atmosphere was terrific with a truly convivial buzz.  Steve was incredibly helpful in the planning and he and his staff were superb on the night. The food was perfect and Radio Daze(the band) made the evening go with a swing.” Katherine

and another April 2015

Many thanks for a great bday bash! Just thought I would drop you a quick line to say thank you for the other night and making the effort with the evening. Everyone was and has been raving about what a great location it was, how good of an atmosphere and importantly to my tight arsed friends how well priced!  Hopefully you will be seeing a few of them there soon and no doubt I will be back soon with someone in tow. Seb

BBC2 – “Honourable Woman” Location Shoot

“The Honourable Woman television production for BBC2 used QuecumBar as a location for a days filming in 2013. The location worked well, especially as it provided an interesting space not found in other restaurants and bars. It is also useful as it is closed during the day in the week and easy to black out”. Rupert Bray

What the people say about the QuecumBar Allstars;

Royal Academy of Dance Summer Party – Sarah-Jane Lewis Lead Events Officer  “.. Our staff loved the music and didn’t want it to end, …It really made our evening special ..we very much hope we can work with you again in the future.”

David Field, PRIMA Design Exhibition ” The Allstars touch all the nerve endings, stirring and feeding our emotions.  From firing the intense and elated feelings of happiness to evoking the warm tears from remembering lost love, the Allstars playing ‘Gypsy’ let you know you are alive.   The music hits you in way some poetry can but stays with you mainly because it inspires the heart. Divine stuff !“.


Pete Watson, Ealing Jazz Festival “One of the highlights of this years Ealing Jazz Festival


Kath Serkis, Organiser of Bastille Day Festival, Borough Market “ The Allstars really made our Bastille Day celebrations go with a swing! They provided just the right touch of authenticity with their bal musette and Gypsy Swing numbers, and their musicianship was incredible. “ 


Wedding at Hornimans Museum “They were fantastic and absolutely charming the lot of them! I will be sure the recommend them to anyone who asks.”

“Singers and Musicians are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime.

Every day, they face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get real jobs, and their own fear that they’ll never work again.

Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream.

With every note, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment.

With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life – the car, the family, the house, the nest egg.


Because musicians and singers are willing to give their entire lives to a moment – to that melody, that lyric, that chord, or that interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul.

Singers and Musicians are beings who have tasted life’s nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another’s heart.

In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.”

- David Ackert, LA Times
