St Harmonica's Blues Club: JD & the Electro-Tones + Big Alan Craig

The Southgate Club, 17 Chase Side, N14 5BP  

201902 eletrotones

It’s a delight to welcome JD & the Electro-Tones to our new venue at St Harmonica’s Blues Club this Friday; the old v was packed and jumping the last time that they played. For my money, Julien D’imperio is one of the finest harmonica players on the blues scenes as well as being a great vocalist and frontman. Julien has played with just about the best there is and he is bringing some of them with him this week.

Davide Mazzantini is on guitar, he has played at St Harmonica’s before and is a wonderful player who has played with, amongst others Little George Sueref and Dust me Down Blues. On double bass Orlando Shearer (also of Wes Weston, and Chad and the Cadillacs) makes sure that the band has that swing while Mike Thorne (Wes Weston, Paul Lamb and the King Snakes) on drums provides the final ingredient. Serious pedigree; this blues outfit will take you on a ride through the electric Blues heritage of 1950s America with a repertoire of Chicago Blues, Texas, Louisiana and maybe on the feel of the moment, a stop by the Mississippi "Hill Country Blues"... Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, RL Burnside, Slim Harpo and many more!

Half time comes in the form of Big Alan Craig so we have a fine evening in prospect

And for all you Blues Jammers,  the next St Harmonica’s Jam is on Sunday March 3rd, 6.00pm -9.00pm but if you can’t wait for that  then every Monday there is the Leytonstone Blues Jam starting at 8.30pm at the Leytonstone Ex-Servicemens 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. Next week, Monday 25th February sees Phil Hughes with Raf as guest artists.


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.
