Club Fox Blues Jam
The Club Fox Blues Jam is heaven on earth for Bay Area blues fans. Through the efforts of a passionate group of local musicians, the hospitality of the Club Fox and local sponsorship, the jam has become the most exciting event in the area's fertile blues scene - and it's attracting both national and international attention. Most importantly, the jam is the catalyst for bringing out more and more blues fans to hear live blues at its spontaneous best.
Every Wednesday from 7 PM to 11 PM, the beautiful historic Club Fox opens its doors to the jam hosted by the elite of Bay Area Blues - Kenny Neal, Steve Freund, Elvin Bishop, Tommy Castro, Rick Estrin, The Ford Blues Band, Volker Strifler, Andy Just, E. C. Scott, Terry Hanck, Kenny Blue Ray, Sonny Rhodes, Daniel Castro, RJ Mischo and Mark Hummel just to mention a few. What follows is a jam like no other. For a mere $5.00 cover charge, folks get to experience some of the finest blues artists, national artists on tour, local luminaries and talented amateurs mixing it up. For the musicians, it's an opportunity to play the blues with peers of unbelievable talent. For the fans in the 240 seat capacity crowd, it's an amazing show every week with new talent and the unpredictable excitement that only a blues jam can bring.
If the music were not enough, appearances at the jam provide an unparalleled promotional opportunity for artists with upcoming area gigs. The buzz following the jam in the highly active local blues community often results in sold-out shows for participating artists. If you are a touring blues performer, drop in and you'll not only get a chance to "cut heads" with the best but also get the word out about your upcoming gig. If you are a member of the blues entertainment media, you'll experience a jam session like no other .
We invite you to come to jam and be a part of this phenomenal event, unequaled since the hay days of LA and Chicago blues.
Join us for the music and be a part of Bay Area blues history.
A Little Goes A Long Way…
Price was born in the war torn country of Vietnam in 1975. Abandoned at birth, she became a part of the controversial Operation Baby Lift, the mass evacuation of orphans from South Vietnam to the United States and many other countries. Lara Price is a survivor. Her journey out of Vietnam to her new home was nothing short of a miracle, as 90 percent of the orphaned babies did not survive.
She discovered the power of music at the tender age of 6 after taking piano lessons in England with legendary 80’s music innovator Howard Jones. At the age of 12 she found her singing voice. Influenced and encouraged by her junior high and high school choir teacher, Blake Olmstead, she continued her vocal studies operatically with Dr. Lynn Berg at BSU.
After arriving in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1997 to pursue her dream of singing in a band, she was soon running her own blues jam at JJ’s Blues in San Jose, and was featured in an inspiring article about blues jams in the September issue of The Blues Revue Magazine. The journey of Lara’s blues band (The Lara Price Band) includes tours across the United States and China and five CD’s that Price produced, co-wrote, and is featured on playing drums, guitar, and back up vocals.
Lara and her band have shared the bill with R&B legends Etta James, James Brown, Buddy Guy, Leon Russell and many more.
Like many full time musicians, Lara fronts and leads several musical projects: Lara Unplugged, an acoustic duo; Velvet Plum, a popular top 40’s party band, Militia of Love, a Cali-Reggae band, The Lara Price Band, a rootsy rockin’ blues band and the Lara Price Blues Revue, a fantastic 10 piece R&B show band.
As of late, Lara has been promoting her newest project, Girls Got the Blues. This is an all-star cast of female talent that have come together to make musical magic!
She’s an All American singer with a sultry stage presence and a voice that demands your attention- smoky, lonely, sexy, and powerful. It’s no wonder her music transcends the blues and crosses a line into music that is unequivocally superb.
