St Harmonica's Blues Club: Doc K's Blues Band

The Southgate Club, 17 Chase Side, N14 5BP  

201903 doc ks blues band

Stand by for an outstanding evening when Doc K’s Blues Band play at St Harmonica’s. If you haven’t seen them before then all you need to know is, quite simply, that they are the finest purveyors of Chicago Blues in the capital. The lineup may have changed over this band’s 50 years but it remains every bit as good as the original with a ridiculous pedigree. Mad Dog Dave Barnes provides searing vocals and slide guitar in tandem with Tim Hill on harmonica and vocals. The rhythm section of Mick Parker, drums, and Simon Fowle, bass, keeps it all driving along, but as for the lead guitarist….legend has it that he cannot be killed by conventional weapons, the incomparable Malcolm Hine.

Half time support comes in the form of acoustic duo, singer/guitarist Kelvin Davies with harp player Gary Jones. These two performed at our last Blues Jam and went down so well we had to ask them to perform at half time on a Friday evening; fortunately they said yes!

BLUES JAMMERS

If you can’t wait for the next Blues Jam on April 7th then on Monday 25th March, the Leytonstone Blues Jam starts 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. John Parry and John Crowther guest this week….marvellous stuff and always top notch.


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.
