Hello All

As you will be aware, because of the current crisis, we have closed until further notice from the UK Government.

We will keep the gig list active and will be rescheduling events once we know when we can reopen, so please keep checking the site for updates.

Stay safe and look out for each other.  The community spirit has never been more important.

Liz and Michael xx


Mama Liz’s was born out of a love of Blues, Jazz and the culture of Louisiana and the deep South. A heritage that has arisen from plantation life and the slave trade. Deep routed within this culture is a passion for food, the energy of life itself, which is often a subject within blues and jazz music, referencing corn bread and fried fish, collard greens and pork & beans.

Hardship, oppression and the sheer fragility of life around the bayous surrounding the ‘mighty Mississippi’ (Old Man River) has created a strong love of life which is characterised in the mardi gras atmosphere of New Orleans. Vibrant streets full of the smells of street food and the sounds of jazz and Zydeco bands a true melting pot of international culture a cuisine. Originally a French territory, an antiquated form of french is used by the Cajuns, so french food forms a strong base, with influences from Africa and Spain via the islands of the Caribbean.

The Food born out of slavery is often referred to as soul food, cheaper cuts of meat and offal, molasses, salt pork, corn meal, catfish and game that could be hunted easily all prepared with love and an exotic array of spices from the new worlds.

We have tried to create a small slice of this vibrant culture and food here at Mama Liz’s, so come and try a slice of our southern American pie and enjoy the flavours of ‘The Big Easy’.
