The long time celebrated Tom Robinson returns to London for a rare performance at The Jazz Café, 1st August 2014. Tom’s busy schedule with his weekly BBC 6 Music radio show and continuing political standpoints make this performance a special occasion for his fans. Being a major political activist since the 1970’s Tom Robinson is highly regarded as one of it not the most influential musicians of the time. “Because regardless of what the history books tell us about The Clash and the Sex Pistols, for anyone growing up in the suburbs towards the end of the 1970s, the group most responsible for politically awakening the nation’s sixth-formers, one skinny tie at a time, was the Tom Robinson Band.” The Independent. As a broadcaster, despite his music being previously banned by the BBC, Tom Robinson’s radio career has seen him host shows on BBC Radios 1, 2, 3, 4, 4Xtra, 5 Live and 6 Music. Winning his first Gold Sony Academy award for GLD (now BBC London) in 1997 and a second as the presenter of [email protected] in 2012.
