Friday 17 May 8.30pm - 11.30pm

St Harmonica's Blues Club: The Keith Airey Band + Luke Potter & Phoebe Thomas

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

201905 keith airey

If you like your blues with a smattering of rock, or perhaps that should be, your rock with a smattering of blues, all performed by guitar legends (we don’t use the word legend lightly) then you will certainly not want to miss the Keith Airey Band this Friday at St Harmonica’s.

Keith Airey is rock royalty having played with Tom Jones, the Zombies, Colin Blunstone, Don Airey and Nik Kershaw amongst others. A respected session musician he has graced the stage at Live Aid and many prestigious gigs and venues world wide. And this Friday he brings with him to the club the legendary bassist Neil Murray who has worked with just about everyone there is (Whitesnake, Gary Moore, Black Sabbath, Brian May Band etc etc). Google him to see the full list! What a coup, and as if that was not enough, the band’s other guitarist is none other than our very own Jesse Thomas from the Blues Chapter who is really looking forward to this gig. Exceptional drummer Iain Goodall occupies the drum throne, completing the Scottish rhythm section, while additional vocals and backing vocals are provided by Kerry Gallagher.

Half time support comes in the form of the lovely vocals and guitar work of festival veteran Luke Potter (Potts) along with Phoebe Thomas providing the perfect chill out half time to allow the blues rock contingent to recover for the second set.

A very special evening ahead, exciting stuff. It may be an idea to arrive early when doors open at 8.00pm to make sure you get in.

 


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.
