House band nailed Chromazone by Mike Stern last week, what a song. Thanks to Nick Linnik (Guitar) for suggesting we put it in the set. Andy Wilder (Drums), Samer Sharawi (Bass) and Mike Rowlands (Sax) were also in the house band last week.
The Jam went really well last Wednesday too, We had students from Cambridge Uni filming for a project movie and had lots of great musicians turn up including a great professional singer, Daniel Dodd-Ellis from Texas, USA.

It was great having Ian Da Preda on Vibraphone back at the Hoxton Jam. His musicianship is top class!
In addition to Ian playing his heart out, the house band (Alexis, Oli, Mike,Samer and Ian) had a great energy on stage and were super tight.
Come and join us next week, bring ur instrument or just come down and enjoy the great music!
October is here !
Last weeks House Band consisted of Mike Horne (Drums), Alexis (Guitar), Samer (Bass), Nick Gilmore (Keys) and Gabriele Virgilio Pribetti on Sax
Gabriele Virgilio Pribetti brought some great new energy to the night. in-fact i think he inspired the house band alot as they were supper on it with a great energy emanating from the stage during the house band set.
In addition to the awesome house band we also had a very busy jam too which made for a great atmosphere.
As usual we are on next week, so if your about on Wednesday come down and check out one of London’s most popular jams :
It was a bit of a quite one last week, but to compensate Andy Wilder (House drums) and Luigi (House Bassist) played longer than usual. We think everyone was having a quite week in as its the last week of the month. So we are hoping for a busy one next week !
as usual if you play come down and get up and play
More info about next week here:
Last week we were surprised to see a few well known good musicians pop down to the jam.
Firstly AJ Brinkman came down, who is a multi instrumentalist and can be found playing in the Westend, cruze ships, Top london jazz bars, Big Bands, and any other place you can imagine.
in addition to this we had pop drummer Dwayne Stanford and hard working guitarist Mafro get up and play a few songs.
join us next week for more great musicians and music:
It was Great having the original members of the Hoxton Jam house band back last week with long time friend Nick Gilmoore on Keys. this week we will have the same lineup but with Mike Rowlands stepping in on Sax as Oli is busy.

On top of that we had Luigi Casanova on bass with Oli Arlotto leading the band.
