The final Music Night of the year at Sunbury Cricket Club is on Friday 8th December when the Club aims to have another party night of rhythm & blues and rock ‘n’ roll when the Club welcomes for the first time guitarist and singer JOE JAMMER with his Chicago Rhythm & Blues Revue.
Chicago-born Joe ran blues sessions at Buddy Guy’s Checkerboard Lounge in Chicago before becoming roadie and guitar technician for Led Zeppelin, and he first came to London in 1970 at the invitation of Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page when he made an album for EMI soon afterwards, and then joined Paladin, followed by Maggie Bell’s Band before becoming a founder member of funk band Olympic Runners with Pete Wingfield and George Chandler - he is one of the most sampled guitarists of all time based on his work with the band. He played on albums for Ringo Starr, Joe Cocker, Mick Jagger, Supertramp and others as well as touring with some of the top names in blues, including playing with Buddy Guy and Junior Wells at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
After returning to the USA and Canada for 20 years or so, he settled back in the UK several years ago, becoming something of a rock and blues troubadour over recent years, gigging regularly with his rock ‘n’ roll band as well as doing shows at venues like the Eel Pie Club and Half Moon Putney with his All-Star Chicago Rhythm & Blues Revue, re-creating the music and atmosphere of the sessions that he used to run at the Checkerboard Lounge. Joe is a great showman and it will be a rollicking evening of blues, R&B and rock ‘n’ roll for the final Music Night before Christmas, so come along and help the Club round off the year in style.
