Samer Sharawi on Bass
Alexis Kraniou on Guitar
Nick Gilmore on Keys
It was such a pleasure to have Ric Elsworth and Joe Evans join us as they are both very musical drummers who have been carving out a good reputation for them selfs over the last few years.
We also some great people who came down including James Lawrence who runs many Muscial projects including a hot Big Band and Elsie who is an Amazing singer/songwriter who has worked with Jahméne Douglas, Tom Jones and many more
Mattia Giallombardo who was the House Drummer last week also came down with his camera and took these amazing shoots, of course it goes without saying that he got up on drums in the jam and nailed some great music!
Check out some of footage of last Wednesdays action!
As usual we are up and running next Wednesday, so don’t miss out on some great music as we have Mike Horn on drums, Kofi on Percussion, Francesco Milazzo in bass, Nelson Pari on guitar and Oli Arlotto on sax !
Michel also brought his friend Osca who is a great Cuban percussionist. which meant we had a nice texture of sound for the house band set.
During the jam Francesco also brought down a new london hand made bass constructed by Anaconda Bases, a company which recently was showcasing its new products at The London Bas Guitar show.
Finally it was a pleasure to have Sedik at the Hoxton Jam who was celebrating his birthday.
So last night we were very blessed to have Gareth Brown on drums and Trevor Joseph on keys. Both amazing players with such a positive approach to music.
The house band was on fire last night especially when they played Nils Lindgren version of Freedom Jazz Dance
