St Harmonica's Blues Club: The Disclaimers Burns Night Special

The Southgate Club, 17 Chase Side, N14 5BP  

201901 disclaimers

What a terrific opening night last week! The Blues Chapter were on great form, as was Mad Dog Dave Barnes, and we were overwhelmed by the support shown by all of you who turned up. The Southgate Club were just as delighted and have promised to get more staff in this week so the bar runs efficiently. It is great to be able to see and hear the acts from anywhere in the room. Long may it continue.

This Friday sees an equally entertaining evening as Big Alan Craig brings his his Anglo/Aberdonian band The Disclaimers to celebrate Burns Night (slightly early) with their eclectic selection of blues, souls.country and rock. Julia Gannon’s vocals are supported by Graham Hall on vocals and guitar, Simon Fowle on bass and Les Cole on drums while Big Alan Craig provides guitar, mandolin, harmonica, vocals and the best address to the haggis that you have ever heard. This has always been one of our most popular evenings and with a small taster of haggis, neaps and tatties (small mind, make sure you eat before coming), courtesy of Penny, available during the evening it’ll give you something to wash down with your single malt; and you won’t have to walk five hundred miles to celebrate either!

A great evening in prospect with the usual St Harmonica’s format of free admission (with your annual £5.00 membership card) and if you like what you see and hear then your donation into the hat is how the all top drawer acts that we book get paid.

Doors open at 8.00pm (not until 8.00pm as we need to set up and sound check) and performance is at 9.00pm.

See you there…. och aye!

 
 
 
 

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.
