I say this as we had a top blues guitar player from Chicago turn up to the jam and play some Blues Fusion.

Chris Caulfield and Joel Ison in the House band

Last Wednesday we had a relatively big house band with Chris Caulfield on Trumpet and Joel Ison on Keys, thus making it a 6 pice house band!

Because we had Sax (Oli Arlotto) and trumpet we put some fun Breaker brothers and Freddie Hubbard tunes on the first set to warm up before tha jam.

So after a great house band set we opened up the jam as usual. some great new musicians appeared including a guitar and bassist from LA who have just finished a 2 year tour with Cirque Du Soleil. On top of that we were pleased to see our french electric violist come back and burn up some awesome solos !!
