From the pen of Blues Jam MC, John Edmonds:

A lively week, with slide genius and smart dresser Steve Taylor on Keys. I want everyone to come in a floral jacket next week to keep up appearances.

14 jammers this week and a good size audience.

House Band: MArtin Fieber, Steve Taylor, Richard Stenhouse and Reg Patten.

The Roll Of Honour:

  • Vocals - Bonnie Taylor and Ivor
  • Gtr+Vocals - Simon Durham, Emanuele Fizzotti, Dave Richards and Mitch Palmer
  • Guitar - Chris Greene, Dave Mason and Colin
  • Bass - Mark Olbricht, Gus Denton, Chris Lafbury and Bill
  • Drums - Bryan Wall

Martin arrived with a "new" old 1965 Ampeg amplifier which he was looking forward to trying out. It certainly sounded wonderful but I feel sorry for his roadie! As always, Martin treated us to some excellent slide guitar accompanied by Steve and the house band.

With six vocalists we needed to get a move on, and thankfully nobody indulged in any long slow blues this week, which gave plenty of time to get Martin up for two songs at the end. In fact, some of the sets were very short due to a lot of rock'n'roll being sung.

Thanks to Chris Lafbury who I could see running around taking photos, and of course to Vera for organising the bands.

Next week we have a new guest for the C&H, Mike Dearing, who I am sure will put together a great set for us.

Finally, a quick plug for my band, JEB, who will be performing at St Harmonica's blues club this Friday 28th.

Thanks for supporting the jam - see you soon!

John
