St Harmonica's Blues Club: JFK Blue + Adam Richard

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

201905 jfk blue

We are delighted to welcome JFK Blue back to St Harmonica’s, the first time at the new venue.

 

JFK Blue are a stylish rock/blues band with a fresh take on well-crafted rock and blues, with stirring songs and superb musicianship. These are musicians with one aim - to play their style of blues and rock with freedom of expression, not to get hung up on genres but to play music that they like. In doing so their music is contemporary yet has an assured retro feel audiences immediately identify with. Their debut album ‘Rough Round The Edges’,  made up of totally self-penned material has received critical acclaim, having been played on BBC Radio 2, Planet Rock, Radio X, BBC Radio Cambridge, BBC Radio Lancashire, Radio Caroline and many, many other stations.

‘A very impressive debut album from this London band, ‘Chris Elliot has a terrific voice and has top drawer instrumentation around him’ Paul Jones BBC Radio 2 Blues Show

The musicianship of the band is astonishing with all having serious pedigree and you can check them out on www.jfkblue.com and see them in action below:

Half time comes in the form of Adam Richard, a great acoustic singer/guitarist whom you will recognise from our Sunday Blues Jams.


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.
