St Harmonica's Blues Club: The Cinelli Brothers + Kelvin Davies and Gary Jones

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

Wonderful performance from Big Mama’s Door last Friday and what a follow up this week when one of the hottest tickets in British Blues return to the St Harmonica's. The Cinelli Brothers are one of the best young Blues Bands around; so good that Music Republic Magazine described them as 'one of the very best blues outfits you’ll hear in decades’ and nominated Marco Cinelli as best guitarist of 2018. They have been building a reputation across the UK and Europe and as far away as Brazil.

This band was born out of a passion for the electric Chicago and Texas blues from ’60s and ’70s. Marco Cinelli (guitarist, singer, composer) and his brother Alessandro Cinelli (drummer, singer) decided to form an explosive team at the service of an original repertoire in the style of Chess, Stax and Motown. So after countless shows in Paris, all over France and London, the Cinelli Brothers band was formed, and they recorded their first vinyl record "Babe Please Set Your Alarm" in the Soup Studio in London. This album comprises original compositions as well as a few covers, such as ‘Chain of Fools’ or ‘Back Door Man’ – which stays true to Willie Dixon’s number, as well as Prince’s ‘Kiss’, in a remarkable shuffle rhythm. The Cinelli Brothers; it's a new generation of passionate musicians of Blues, Soul, Rhythm and Blues and true lovers of the authentic sounds that have made the history of the blues.

You should check out the link below and then resolve not to miss this great young band. If you saw them back in July you will know what we mean; if you didn’t then this Friday you are in for the musical treat of your year. Arrive early for good seats

The high quality vibe continues at half time comes in the form of Kelvin Davies and Gary Jones, performing their acoustic duo set. A wonderful accompaniment to the Cinellis’ main course.

See you on Friday, you really shouldn’t miss this evening

Paul Lamb & The Kingsnakes at The 100 Club

It was a real pleasure to have Paul Lamb drop into the club last Friday and open the show as well as play a number with Big Mama’s Door.

Paul Lamb and the Kingsnakes are at the legendary 100 Club on Tuesday 10th December. Tickets are £16 but you can save yourself a couple of quid by getting them in advance from Dave Thomas on Friday evenings at St Harmonica’s.


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

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.
