St Harmonica's Blues Club: Dawn Sandells & Roots 101

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

201907 dawn sandell

What a fantastic night last Friday from the Cinelli Brothers and from Sky Wood and Jesse Thomas at half time. We had to follow them with an equally good offering this week and you won’t be disappointed when Dawn Sandells, the Welsh Wolverine, brings her powerful evocation of the blues back to St Harmonicas with a very impressive band all of whom are steeped in this music, Dawn Sandells and Roots 101. Dawn is no stranger to St Harmonica’s having performed at the old venue a few times and also having been invited to play at Livestock, Beer & Blues and at the Broomfield Bandstand festivals so we now how good she is. As well as these she has performed throughout the UK and Europe

Now based back in Wales Dawn’s band consists of Steve Simpson on guitar and vocals, the multi-talented Jim Russell on drums, Malcolm Hoskins on bass and the magnificent Janos Baitala on keyboards. You can google the pedigree of all these players to see the quality of this line up. Expect an evening of sassy, classy and powerful blues….don’t miss it

Half time support comes in the form of Steve Ingrey and Dave BartonThe Fox Chasers back in the saddle with wonderful acoustic blues and Mark Hoffman will be spinning some very rare early blues records on his wheels of steel from 8.00pm to lead us in.

LIVESTOCK

And then on Saturday, 27th, we have Livestock at Forty Hall Farm. North London’s finest festival which includes the Woodland Blues Stage in a delightful glade in the woods with another outstanding line up (below). Full details at https://www.livestockuk.com and tickets just £25 for the day.


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.
