Hannes Riepler Quartet
LONDON Hackney Empire Bar

Guitarist and composer Hannes Riepler leads his quartet through his melodic and driving tunes, before opening up a celebrated jam session where many great London musicians stop by and anything can happen.
Hannes Riepler grew up in Austria, studied jazz guitar in Amsterdam and moved to London in 2006, where he dived into the vibrant scene and played all over the city alongside fellow jazzers young and old.
An energetic and inventive guitar player, spirited composer, he has also hosted some of the city’s most important jam sessions, beginning at the infamous Charlie Wright’s, moving to downstairs at The Vortex and finally alighting at The Empire Bar.
These sessions are informal and friendly with music of very high quality, ideal for visiting musicians or music lovers who want to relax with some great music and exciting new combinations of musicians.
