Who’s on stage next: Cinelli Bros 19 July 2019




Friday 19th July   9pm

It’s always great to host a band that hasn’t played at St Harmonica’s before and especially when they are currently one of the hottest tickets in British Blues. The Cinelli Brothers are one of the best young Blues Bands around; so good that Music Republic Magazine described them as 'one of the very best blues outfits you’ll hear in decades’ and nominated Marco Cinelli as best guitarist of 2018. They have been building a reputation across the UK and Europe and as far away as Brazil.

 

This band was born out of the brothers' passion for the electric Chicago and Texas blues from the ’60s and ’70s. Marco Cinelli (guitarist, singer, composer) and his brother Alessandro Cinelli (drummer, singer) began putting together an original repertoire in the style of Chess, Stax and Motown and after countless shows in Paris, all over France and London, the Cinelli Brothers band was formed. They recorded their first vinyl record "Babe Please Set Your Alarm" in the Soup Studio in London. This album comprises original compositions as well as a few covers, such as ‘Chain of Fools’ or ‘Back Door Man’ – which stays true to Willie Dixon’s number, as well as Prince’s ‘Kiss’, in a remarkable shuffle rhythm. They are joined on stage by Enzo Strano on bass and Tom Julian-Jones on Harmonica and guitar.
The Cinelli Brothers, a new generation of passionate musicians of Blues, Soul, Rhythm and Blues and true lovers of the authentic sounds of the blues.

The high energy young vibe continues at half time comes in the form of Jesse Thomas and Sky Wood, no slouches themselves when it comes to making venues rock, performing their acoustic ‘Two Man Job’ set.



 

 

Paul Lamb’s blog

What a great night!

One of the best evenings of Blues I’ve ever been to…..anywhere!

The most entertaining set for a long time

I can’t believe this is all available right here on our doorstep!

Paul Lamb is just amazing, great feel but so entertaining too

Paul Lamb

 

These are just some of the comments we got during and at the end of the evening of 29th August when Harmonica legend Paul Lamb and his guitarist and vocalist Chad Strentz performed their acclaimed acoustic duo set at St Harmonicas. Two players working together at what they do best, playing what they feel and feeling what they do. That’s what their promotional literature says and it turned out to be spot on. These two entertained us with two sets of terrific acoustic Blues with some great takes and arrangements of traditional tunes as well as their own stuff. A packed crowd sat spell bound, enthralled by the quality of the voices and musicianship. Paul took to wandering through the crowd, in the manner of the Bluesmen of old, playing his harmonica, singing and getting great response from the crowd to his calls.


September 5th: Customtones

The truly unique guitar sound of Martin Fieber - the best kept secret of the London Blues world - sits at the heart of the magic that is the Customtones. Backed by the the legendary Mickey Parker on drums, the multi-talented Steve Taylor on Keyboards and Coach and Horses Blues Jam regular Terry (Bass), they made a welcome return to St Harmonicas for the fifth time. We see quite a few quality slide guitar players on Friday nights but none quite so magical as this. If you have an original Datsun, then you will have an original song just for you……we’ll say no more.

Check out a short film about Martin’s sound and guitar making here

February 21st: Jules Carter Trio

For their first time at St Harmonicas, we welcomed three pro players at the top of their game. Together for eight years, they played a variety of their own material in an exciting amalgam of blues, rock, and jazzier styles, influenced by the great blues trios of the past, but with hints of Steely Dan, Eric Johnson, and Mike Stern in the mix. Great players playing great music; with loads of gleeful improvisation and jamming thrown in. Some popular cover versions too including some excellent Cream covers - true power trio excellence. They will be back.

Check out their sounds here or see them in action here.

Valentines Blues Jam

For Valentine’s day we enjoyed the traditonal Vintage Half Term Blues Jam. Lots of players both old and new turned up and delivered Howling entertainment whilst outside it blew a Howling Gale and inside we heard Howlin’ George. The House Band kicked the evening off as always with Dave Thomas up front and the clinical guitar of John Crowther. Too many performers to mention them all but we particularly enjoyed our final line up featuring Tim Hill, Eddie Angel and the rhythm section of Steve and Pete. Top notch. Check out our Facebook page too to see a photo of the East End vocal legend that is Marge - 87 years old and still taking the stage last night!  Our next Jam night at the end of term may well be an acoustic jam to add some variety so watch this space….

February 7th 2014: The Blues Chapter

A blistering two sets from the Blues Chapter last night. Some say that left handers have innate artistic and creative abilities, eg Paul McCartney, Albert King, Jimi Hendrix to name just three.  The Blues Chapter, that laid-back band of left-handed layabouts (Bass Player Sam excluded) brought their rocking Blues set back to St Harmonica's. We heard shades of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Gary Moore and Little Feat amongst the repertoire. The left handed Sky Wood delivered charisma in shovel loads to his front man duties along with smouldering vocals, harmonica and acoustic guitar. Niol Sweeney, the finest left-handed drummer in the world, was back on the drum throne with his right hand man Sam Gannon next to him on bass . The multi-talented Daniel Monsurate continues to play keyboards with both hands while southpaw Jesse Thomas blasted the rocking guitar that the band have become known for.  Quite possibly the best Bues Chapter gig we have yet seen.
