From the pen of Blues Jam MC, John Edmonds:

A very quiet week after a run of good attendances, probably due to the England v Germany footy - a shame, as our guest Max Edwards performed a great set of blues rock songs in his usual enthusiastic style.

House Band: Max Edwards (bass+vocals), John Edmonds and Reg Patten.

The Roll Of Honour:

  • Vocals - Howlin' George
  • Harp+Vocals - Mark Sibley
  • Gtr+Vocals - Simon Durham, Dave Richards and Steve Monk
  • Guitar - Dave Mason, Cath Trapani and Richard Stenhouse
  • Bass - Mark Fairey and Max Edwards
  • Drums - Bryan Wall

Obviously with so few jammers everyone got two sets and Max was kind enough to help out on bass for two of the sets.

Max started just after 9:00 with "Walkin' The Dog" followed by Freddie King's "Going Down". Next a few Cream songs: "Outside Woman Blues" and a song that is rarely played at the Coach, "Politician". Finally a very improvised version of "Boom Boom Boom" and a tribute to Chuck Berry with "Oh Carol". A great set enjoyed by an enthusiastic audience.

There followed six jam sets led by Dave Richards, Howlin George and Steve Monk. Howlin' George finished the evening singing a couple of songs with the house band and Mark Sibley on harp.

Many thanks to Chris Lafbury who I saw darting around the stage with his camera, and to Ernie and Richard for helping with setting up and packing away all the backline. Also to Ken Cumberlidge for updating the C&H website. Videos will be posted soon on our YouTube channel (below centre), Ernie King's channel (below left) and our Facebook page (below right). Mp3s will be appearing in the player below ASAP.

Next week we are delighted to have one of the finest blues artists in the country performing at the C&H. We welcome once again Robin Bibi, who is sure to perform a great set. Don't miss him.

Thanks for supporting the jam - hope to see more of you next week.

John
