From the pen of Blues Jam MC, John Edmonds:

A fantastic jam night at the C&H with our guest artist Stuart Dixon on guitar and Mark Sibley on vocals.

After last week’s low numbers and the poor turnout last night at the Hot Hob jam I was worried we wouldn't get a good turnout for Stuart. How wrong could I be! A large audience and 22 quality jammers making up seven excellent bands.

We started the evening with an arrangement of The Meter's "Cissy Strut", which gave Stuart a chance to show his amazing soloing skills. Next up, the standard "Black Cat bone" followed by Robben Ford's "Prisoner of Love". At this point we invited Mark to join us for three more songs from his excellent repertoire. A very enjoyable set but time now for the jammers to entertain us, and entertain they did. A good moment to call...

The Roll Of Honour:

  • Vocals - Jan Fielder
  • Harp+Vocals - Mark Sibley
  • Gtr+Vocals - Mike Dearing, Martin Fieber, Steve Monk and Matt Withey
  • Guitar - Dave Mason, Richard Stenhouse, Ray Miller, Atheesan, Tony Myers, Maisie Gleesing, Robbie Blake, Chris Greene and Dave Warne
  • Bass - Chris Lafbury, Gus Denton, Mark Fairey, Dave Warne, Sam Roberts and Joe
  • Drums - Bryan Wall, Jake Greaves and Reg Patten

Unfortunately with 13 guitarists I needed to build 7 bands so had to introduce the dreaded 2 song limit after band two. sad face

But everyone had the opportunity to play and we even had time for 2 songs from Stuart and Mark at the end.

The 7 bands were led by Jan Fielder, Mike Dearing, Mark Sibley, Martin Fieber, Steve Monk, Matt Withey and myself.

I am very grateful for all the guitarists who kept their solos down to 24 bars, and for the vocalists who didn't sing one slow blues all night. grin - not that I don't like slow blues, but with two soloists it takes twice as long as an up-tempoed song.

Thanks to Chris Lafbury for the photos, Ernie for setting up the backline and to Kaz & Peter at the door. Check out the videos and mp3s later, here on our web site and Youtube channels.

Next week, I am delighted to announce that Robin Bibi will be back with us. See you then for another instalment of the Coach & Horses blues jam.

John
