Hoxton Jam – 9th Jan 2013

Happy New Year !

So the 9th of Jan was our first Wednesday back, and we loved it

The house band opened with some new tunes which include Donna lee & Funky Sea, Funky Dew, and for our first Jam of 2013 we had Andy Wilder back on house drums along with the usual H.J. crew of Samer, Alexis and Oli

In addition to the great crowd  there were also some special guests in the house. Firstly Graeme Flowers on Trumpet who is part of the London Horns popped in and played some great funk numbers.
Secondly another trumpeter, Miron Rafajlovic a Canadian touring musician from the Cirque du Soleil, KOOZA show (now playing in the Royal Albert Hall).
And finally Andy Gangadeen (Incognito, Duran Duran, Massive Attack, the Spice Girls, The Bays and Jeff Beck) who came down to check out the vibe.

We are back next Wednesday, so we hope to see you then!

13th June Hoxton Jam

The Hoxton Jam was Proud to have Ric Elsworth back on drums and Mike Rowlands on Sax along with our Regular players Alex, Samer & Joel (Guitar, Bass & Keys)

Ric had some really original sounds coming from the drums, which he most likly obtained by combining his experience and equipment as a percussion player with his skills on traditional kit…. Im sure the other drummers in the house were taking notes !

We also had enough horn players visiting the Hoxton Jam last Wednesday to make a small big band.

One of those Horn players was a trumpet player called Nick Etwell, The Hoxton Jam was really happy to have Nick come down as he is a great musician and worth checking out ( if you have 5 mins have a look at his band http://www.myspace.com/thefilthysix)

 

Ron Hector was kind enough to take some photos to show you what u missed out on !
