It’s always our delight to host Jimmy C and the Blues Dragons at St Harmonica’s. He graced our old venue many times and also had everyone on their feet at Broomfield Blues last summer. He’s not only a fine guitarist, singer and frontman but one of the nicest guys on the circuit, Jimmy always seems to have a smile on his face. One of London's most entertaining and hard-working Blues Bands these guys are a hit wherever they play with a repertoire that includes Blues classics from Robert Johnson and T Bone Walker, through Albert, Freddie & BB King to the British Blues explosion including Cream and the Rolling Stones. Their mission is to entertain and get you dancing. Check out some of the comments: http://www.bluesdragons.com/

Half time support comes in the form of Laine Hines, an absolutely top drawer acoustic player and blues singer. Great to have him back at St Harmonica’s and the first time at the new venue.


St Harmonica's at the Southgate Club

St Harmonica's will be at the Southgate Club on Fridays - apart from the first Friday of the month. Instead of the first Friday of the month, St Harmonica's will be at the Southgate Club on the Sunday after the first Friday (which in some months will be the second Sunday of the month).

Purchase an annual membership card for just £5 (cheapest membership anywhere?) and thereafter admission is free on Friday blues nights and Sunday blues jams. As we’ve always done, we will take ‘the hat’ around for donations, which is how the bands get paid. The Southgate Club will take the bar takings, which is how they are able to give us the venue at no cost.

So you know where your membership fee goes, we’ve had to buy some new PA equipment this year and get a mixer repaired, which cost us over £1k, and we need a reserve to top up the bands’ fees when the evening’s hat doesn’t quite make it. 

Doors open at 8.00pm, the entrance is at the back in Crown Lane, and 2019 membership cards will be available on the door. Parking is fine after 6.30 in local streets and there is always 3 hour free parking in the Asda car park, public transport is a doddle!

Coming up
