Sunday 7 July 2019 6.00pm - 9.00pm

St Harmonica's Acoustic Blues Jam

The Southgate Club, 17 Chase Side, N14 5BP (Entrance is in Crown Lane)  

201907 acoustic blues jam

The first Friday of every month is Comedy Night so NO Blues Club this Friday BUT, this Sunday, 7th July, 6.00pm - 9.00pm gives lots of players and singers the chance to perform on the stage at the Southgate Club at the legendary St Harmonica's Acoustic Blues Jam. This one is a bit unusual as we will only be playing instruments that don't need to be plugged into an amp (although we will still put them through the PA), and endeavouring to select material that suits this style. We may make one or two special exceptions (e.g. for keyboards), but please don't come expecting to play electric guitars, bass, etc.

Proceedings will kick off at 6.00pm sharp with the house band followed by carefully selected combinations of players and vocalists performing the numbers of the vocalists’ choosing. Anything could happen and it usually does - sometimes it is magnificent!

Jammers
Sign in on arrival, ideally before 6.00pm, with name and preferred instrument. We'll supply some drums & percussion, keyboard, acoustic bass, mics and DI boxes for acoustic instruments, and the PA.

Queensbury Jamming Rules apply:

  • the singer calls the tune, decides the key, and dishes out the solos;
  • players: please unpack your instrument, tune up and have everything ready before it's your turn to play;
  • solos are generally 2 verses long, unless the singer decides otherwise;
  • sets are 3 songs (unless we're running out of time, or your songs are 10 mins long);
  • if you aren't a drummer, bassist, or keyboard player, please bring your own instrument. Drummers, do bring your own sticks!

Audience members are vital to the whole proceedings, and highly valued!

Same as on Fridays: free admission with your St Harmonica’s 2019 membership card; put some money in the hat if you enjoy the music.


St Harmonica's at the Southgate Club

St Harmonica's is 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 two days later, ie the Sunday after the first Friday (which in some months will be the second Sunday of the month).

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the club now operates differently from before.

  • You must book in advance and your contact details will be recorded - no tickets at the door
  • Links for buying tickets will be sent out to the email list six days before each show.
  • Audience size is limited to 70 people
  • All audience members must remain seated throughout and there will be table service.

Our collective interpretation of recent government announcements about group sizes is that with the Covid-secure measures that we have in place in our partnership with the Southgate Club we can proceed. This approach has also been approved by the Musicians Union. The social distancing measures we used at the Cinelli Brothers gig will all be in place with the addition of temperature readings taken at the door; anyone recording a high reading won’t be allowed in and will be refunded, and we are now limiting the maximum table size to six people. We have measures to keep the musicians safe as well as the audience. We hope that the situation will enable us to run our complete autumn programme unless Enfield becomes subject to specific local mini-lockdown measures, or the national guidelines and/or legislation change.
