Friday 14 December 2018 8.30pm - 11.30pm

St Harmonica's Blues Club: Serious Blues + Big Alan Craig

St Monica's Parish Centre, Cannon House, 6 Cannon Hill, N14 7HG  

serious blues dec 2018

Do you realise that this Friday will be the last evening at the current Blues Club venue of Cannon House for a full band evening? Next week is our last Friday before we move to our new home at the Southgate Club and that is a the Christmas Blues Jam.

So it is just as well that we are ending with a very fine band of serious blues musicians who, together, go by the name of Serious Blues. This is the band that first gave us the talents of Frankie Connolly to marvel at and, while Frankie now does his own thing, this Friday’s line up is absolutely first class. Andy Hodge is the bass players’ bassist, a lovely player and terrific vocalist. It doesn’t get much better than Sam Kelly sitting behind the drum kit and with Paul Jobson on keyboards and vocals this completes a top drawer line up of blues royalty.

Half time comes in the shape of Big Alan Craig accompanied by his loon, Lyndsay. A great evening in prospect.

If you are bored on Saturday night, 15th December, then the Low Down Dogs, together with Chrissie Thomas are performing at the Antwerp Arms in Church Road, Tottenham N17 8AS from 8.00pm. The Antwerp is a great pub tucked away behind Bruce Castle Park, saved from the developers for the community by volunteers and providing a lovely atmosphere complete with real ales from Tottenham’s Redemption brewery.

On Monday 17th December  the  Leytonstone Blues Jam hold their Christmas party with House Red, the St Harmonica’s House Band as the guest artists. Possibly London’s friendliest jam, the Leytonstone Blues Jam starts at 8.30pm at the Leytonstone Ex-Sevicemens Club, 2 Harvey Road, Leytonstone E11 3DB http://www.leytonstonebluesjam.co.uk Admission is just £1.00 for jammers and £2.00 to be part of the audience.


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).

We’ve spent a bit of time up at the new venue and we hope that you will all like the place and feel at home straight away. To allay one or two concerns that came our way; there is loads of seating, around 120 seats around tables with good sightlines and acoustics, and there is a very well stocked bar with pumped beer, a few varieties, available in the members bar which St Harmonica’s members will be able to use on blues nights.

We are able to keep the conditions the same: 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. We’re delighted to be able to keep St Harmonica’s as a community club and hope to bring you the best in blues throughout 2019 and into the next decade.

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 in the next few weeks

Dates shown in red are Sunday night jam sessions.  Others are Friday nights.  There is no St Harmonica's on the first Friday of the month, when the Comedy Club is held in the hall.
