St Harmonica's Blues Club: Spikedrivers + Kelvin Davis & Gary Jones

Friday 24 May 8.30pm

The Southgate Club, 17 Chase Side, N14 5BP (Entrance is in Crown Lane)

202405 spikedrivers at st harmonicas


This Friday one of the classiest acts on the Blues & Roots scene play St Harmonica’s. Spikedrivers are a band whose music has been described as 'haunting', 'gutsy', 'tribal' and even psychedelic. Blues in Britain says, “From the first note, Spikedrivers demand to be listened to. Ben Tyzack, Constance Redgrave and Maurice McElroy are three very talented musicians willing to experiment and evoke unusual contemporary sounds while they continue to keep diggin’ the blues by the roots.” From the early blues of Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker and Big Bill Broonzy they have added their own blend of north African and Native American rhythms, gospel harmonies, sixties blues and rock guitar. More about them here:

And, as an extra special treat, on Friday the Spikedrivers will be joined on stage by legendary pedal steel guitarist BJ Cole. Do not miss this gig.

Friday's support acts just keep on getting better and better. Kelvin Davies is a glorious guitarist and vocalist and plays original and classic blues alongside his partner in crime Gary Jones who provides harmonica just as it should be played.

Kelvin Davies and Gary Jones will play at 8.30pm followed by two sets from the Spikedrivers starting just after 9.00pm.

We hope to see you all there to help Simon Bennett celebrate a big birthday.
