Bluesinlondon Nights 1 & 2
Leonard's EC1, Tower Bridge Road, 17.09.06 + 29.10.06
As we've said before, the whole point of this website is to encourage
live blues music in this town, so I suppose it was only a matter of time
before we started to put on events ourselves. Our opening night with Vulnerable
Hare and The Velours was a great success
on a very hot late summer evening, as you can see from these photos
- even G.P's guitar was sweating!
In october we had outstanding performances from both Son
Blues, with assistance on bass by Jamie Lawrence, and
a great set by The Paul Garner Band.
Our plan is to do more, and hopefully establish
the night as a regular
and popular fixture on the London blues scene. In time we hope to increase
our scope to include national and international
artists, as well as continuing
to showcase the fantastic London musicians who have already contributed,
and who continue to contribute.
To do that
we need your support. The night is funded entirely
by the door money and the people who have already played have done so
for a fraction of what they normally get paid in an effort to get a decent
night established. The more people come along the more we can do
right by the musicians and the more likely it is that we'll be able to continue
booking top quality acts.
So come on London blues fans - support your
local scene! Come down to the next one (details shortly...) and have
an argument with us about our Top Fives face to face!

Sam Hare impressed on the slide in the first solo spot.
