March 2020

Stan's Blues Jam

3.00pm Paprika Blues Band

"The Paprika Blues Band have injected
the legendary sound of the blues with a young,
creative mindset that will keep your foot tapping
and ears warm.

The Shropshire-based four-piece explores the fusion
of blues, funk, jazz and rock, siphoning the struggles of
today in a sound that belies a deep knowledge of all four genres. An energetic live performance is equalled by a passion for playing as the group meander down the crossroads of music.

With an act that started down your local before touring up and down the country, this hungry band from the West Midlands have won over crowds across the UK these aficionados build on what's come before to create something to call their own."

3.40pm Groove Bakers

"Groove Bakers is an old recipe based on Blues, Folk and Rock.
It started in 2014 in Glasgow as a duo (the "Original Recipe") and it has survived many transformation till its last incarnation, an eclectic and dynamic quartet, also known as "Electric Oven".

With an extensive repertoire of root blues like Skip James and Willie Blind Johnson, classics from Freddie Kind and B. B. King, protest songs from Joan Baez, Bob Dylan and CSN&Y, the Bakers cover all the nuances of modern rock and blues and their in-betweens. Now based in Southampton."

4.20pm Haney's Big House

"A five-piece Rhythm & Blues combo playing in
the traditional 40’s & 50’s style. Our line-up of Drums, Double Bass, 2 Guitars and Harmonica, uses largely period–vintage instruments and equipment to create an authentic sound which is the essence of Haney’s Big House. We focus on bringing all original material, that doesn’t sound out of place alongside the classic sounds of old-style Chicago and swinging West Coast blues.
At home with all styles, we bring a pumping energetic
sound to Jump Blues, Swing and Rock & Roll. Top
vocals with a driving rhythm section topped off with
killer harmonica licks and great  guitars.
We are Stephen Dalton (vocals, rhythm guitar),
Jan Rottiers (solo guitar), Matt Timms (harmonica),
Mark Tomes (double bass) and Steve Holley (drums)".

 Ripping, or copying, our videos

We video the jams and post the performances on Youtube and our website so that jammers and friends can enjoy them.  If a jammer requests that a video be taken down from Youtube we can do this. This forms part of the trust between us and the jammers.
We are happy for our videos to be shared on Facebook or other platforms.
To rip a video is plain bad manners and shows a lack of integrity. If we discover that someone has ripped one of our videos and reposted it themselves,  we will take steps to have it removed.
Anyone found ripping our videos repeatedly will not be featured in our jam videos.
