“A film without music is boring, people won’t recognise their favourite scenes,” Grammy and Emmy-winning Hollywood composer James Newton Howard declared a few years back. We agree with that 100%.

Which is also why we have prepared an extraordinary and very much in-demand performance of Bigband in Film. The Loop Jazz Orchestra, co-founded by Jan Hasenöhrl with Lukáš Chejn and others, together with the pianist, arranger, composer, flautist, artistic director Vít Pospíšil will guide the audience through well-known big-band melodies that are some of the mainstays of the silver screen. 

The crowd favourites that were performed at The Loop Jazz Club in May 2023 will be supplemented by big-band delicacies from Random HeartsCasino, and The Valet. The experience will be augmented by the excellent acoustics and retro Eighties design of our Hostivař music club.
