St Harmonica's Blues Club: Storm Warning + Susan Black

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

201912 storm warning

Some of us may be suffering with the blues on Friday morning depending upon the election result. One result is certain, though: St Harmonica’s provides the best blues music in the capital and this Friday we have a magnificent offering to enable you to celebrate or forget your troubles.

Storm Warning are one of the finest contemporary blues bands in the UK. They haven’t entertained us yet at the Southgate Club and we are delighted to welcome them this Friday. Their own material and their take on blues classics are brilliantly arranged and delivered, and they have been played on radio stations worldwide including the Paul Jones programme on Radio 2 for which they recorded a live session. With four albums under their belt (you will want to buy at least one of these), they feature a veritable line up of all the talents: Son Maxwell, ex Mick Ralph’s Band vocalist and harmonica player, along with Bob Moore on guitar are a formidable pairing and with Ian Salisbury on keyboards, Derek White (Larry Miller Band) on bass and Russ Chaney (ex Mick Clarke Band) on drums.

Watch this for a feel of what is to come.

Don’t miss them, this is a class act, as is the half-time support offering in the form of Susan Black, a wonderful singer songwriter

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.
