Friday 7 December 2018 8.30pm - 11.30pm

St Harmonica's Blues Club: Storm Warning + That Blue Patch

St Monica's Parish Centre, Cannon House, 6 Cannon Hill, N14 7HG  

storm warning dec 2018

Storm Warning are one of the finest contemporary blues bands in the UK. It’s been too long since they entertained us at St Harmonica’s and we are delighted to welcome them back this Friday, 7th December. 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 Ralphs 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 they are unstoppable.

Don’t miss them, this is a class act; as is the half-time support offering in the form of Ruth & Dave ~ That Blue Patch. Marvellous entertainment.

On Sunday 9th December, John & Caroline, aka The Haunting AD, perform their semi-acoustic set in the St Monica’s bar from 8.15pm

On Monday 10th December, the Leytonstone Blues Jam sees Max Edwards, as the guest artist providing bass and vocals joined by Raf on guitar. Possibly London’s friendliest jam, the Leytonstone Blues Jam starts at 8.30pm at the Leytonstone Ex-Sevicemens 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.


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.
