From the pen of our Head Honcho and Houseband Bassist - Terry Duggan:

To say I was very disappointed with this week's turn-out is the understatement of the year. After a steady rise in attendances we were suddenly reduced to seven names on the signing-in sheet with about five non-players. As I've often said before, our houseband guest, whether they be high-profile or not, has no bearing on the attendances but I felt deeply apologetic towards Jimmy Gaynor and Steve Taylor who gave us another entertaining opening set but enjoyed by so few people alas.

One crumb of comfort is that the Leytonstone Club's manageress is still keen for us to "Carry On Regardless", but in consideration to all the hard work that so many people put in towards the running of the jam, the question remains as to whether it's all worth it - we'll see how things go in the near future.

Having said that, I must thank Jimmy Gaynor for not being fazed (or appearing not to be fazed) by giving us another fine show and providing the much-needed humour, my thanks also to Steve Taylor for stepping in at short notice and also contributing so much towards the jamming session.

For the first time in 16 years there were no recognised bass-player's names on the signing-in sheet although we did have Steve Taylor, Raf and Richard Stenhouse to call upon - plus of course our genial MC Dave Thomas. Speaking of Raf, he really wowed everybody with a truly amazing bass-solo on Bonnie Taylor's second jam-set!

We usually attract at least three drummers each week but only one jamming drummer here on this occasion - so we certainly made use of the quality of Marc Turner, but even more amazingly only two guitarists here this week!

So, a mere seven Jammers made it here this week but we were not short of some excellent jam-sets led by Bonnie Taylor, Jan Fielder, our MC Dave Thomas and Bo, who we were also delighted to see. Time to call...

The Roll Of Honour:

  • Vocals - Jan Fielder and Bonnie Taylor
  • Harp+Vocals - Bo
  • Bass+Vocals - Dave Thomas
  • Harp - Ned Phillips
  • Guitar - Jimmy Gaynor, Raf and Richard Stenhouse
  • Bass - Raf, Richard Stenhouse and Terry Duggan
  • Drums - Marc Turner and Reg Patten

Thanks as always to Ernie King and Richard Stenhouse for setting up and stacking away the equipment at the end of the night, plus further thanks to Queen Bee Vera for arranging the jam sets and taking photos.

Next time at Leytonstone Blues Jam:
Next week's houseband guest will be Matt Withey who will be producing a very interestingly varied set, which I'm very much looking forward to. Matt will be travelling up from Kent and I do hope he'll be playing in front of a big audience of Jammers and Listeners.

Something for the weekend:
The Blues continues at St Harmonica's on Friday 17th when The Keith Airey Band will be playing two full sets supported by Potts, for further details see THE ST HARMONICA'S WEBSITE.

At The Manor Arms, 150 East India Dock Road, E14 0BP our good friend Jimmy 'C' will be guesting with Ronnie Collins' Last Project starting at 3pm until 6pm - no charge at the door at this amazing little pub.

Thanking all our Jammers and Listeners,

Terry
