Last wednesday was another busy Hoxton Jam with some top musicians passing by!

To start with we had Gizelle Smith open the Jam with her tunes. it was great seeing her before she leaves with with Alexis and the rest of her band for a tour of Europe.

We had one of Londons top bass players Rick James making an appearance last weds along with an amazing sax player called Sam Healey who travelled down from Manchester for the Jam. And to top it off Laurie Lowe came down again to play drums…. all of the musicians were on fire last night.

House band last Wednesday was also a tight line up and consisted of:

Marco Quarantotto – Drums
Oli Arlotto – Sax
Paul Jordanous -Keys/Trumpet
Samer Sharawi – Bass
Alexis Kraniou – Guitar

And this is what they sounded like:

To make a change for a once it was quite a relaxing Hoxton Jam last wednesday, with enough time for everybody to get a few chances at playing !
Anyways the chances of it being quite again next week are very slim so make sure you get down early to catch some great music, More info here: http://www.facebook.com/events/_Hoxton_Jam_20th _Feb/

Also check out this little tast of what happened a few weeks ago with some of London’s top musicians at the Hoxton Jam.

Nik Svarc @ the Hoxton Jam last Wednesday

Another great House band was arranged for last Wednesday, with special guest Nik Svarc on guitar and Michel.Castellanos on drums.
It was refreshing having Nik in house band as he is an established and dedicated player who is know to jump between the Leeds and London music scene.

If you missed his playing last night you can check out his own project : The Svarc Trio :
