Michal Urbaniak - Urbanator (Friday)
A message for all of our customers regarding Coronavirus
In line with the most recent announcements from the Government and Public Health England, Hideaway will be temporarily closed from Thursday 19th March.
We want to reassure our customers that your health, as well of that of our staff, musicians and the community we are proud to be a part of is our absolute priority.
We are currently working through our schedule of upcoming shows and postponing and re-booking the artists who will be affected by this current and unique global challenge.
As shows are re-booked, all tickets will automatically be valid and transferred to the new date and we will contact all customers on a show-by-show basis.
Please bear with us as it will take us several days to work through the calendar.
We will be re-opening once the updates from PHE advise that it is safe to do so – please keep a close eye on our social media channels and also our mailing list for news about our re-opening – tickets will also remain on sale for shows later in the year.
With best wishes and much love, The Hideaway Team
The Polish violinist and composer Michal Urbaniak has recorded and toured with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis (featuring on the album ‘Tutu’) Billy Cobham, Urszula Dudziak, George Benson and Quincy Jones.
He now brings his full band Urbanator to Hideaway for two exclusive London shows featuring acclaimed guitarist and MOBO nominee Femi Temowo and Xantoné Blacq on keys (Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Laura Mvula).
During 1975 - 1989, Urbaniak ran Michal Urbaniak Fusion, a renowned band which played at major concert halls and clubs all over the US (Village Vanguard, Village Gate, Carnegie Hall, New York Jazz Festival, Newport, Washington). At that time, he had a chance to play with the biggest jazz legends of all-time, such as George Benson, Lenny White, Wayne Shorter, Marcus Miller, Billy Cobham, Joe Zawinul, Ron Carter, Stéphane Grappelli and Miles Davis.
Playing with Miles at that time meant more than winning any prestigious award, especially with Davis reportedly exclaiming "Get me this &$!#% Polish fiddler, he's got the sound!"
