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.

Paula Harris

“If Etta James fronted the Tower of Power- and they were a blues band- THAT is what Paula Harris sounds like!” She delivers a mix of Impudent, Humorous, and Naughty Lyrical content in a Fusion of Blues, Funk and Jazz. Her band, the “Beasts of Blues” and her Horn section “Big Ass Brass” are world-class, and they put on a show that is as impressive as their sound.

Featured in the band are prolific horn players Mike Rinta, Tom Poole, & Tony Peebles, who have worked with acts such as Sly & the Family Stone, Etta James, Boz Scaggs, Santana, Lenny Williams and MANY more. Also in the band is 17 year veteran drummer with Little Richard- Derrick Martin; Keyboardist from the James Brown Band- Simon Russell; long-time Bay Area Bass musicians and session players Terry Hiatt on guitar, and Joey Fabian on bass complete the Rhythm Section.

Paula Harris and the Beasts of Blues won the 2012 Battle of the Bands for the Golden Gate Blues Society and the San Francisco Bay Area, the 2012 Monterey Blues Festival’s Battle of the Bands, and finished in the top three worldwide in Memphis at the International Blues Challenge (after receiving standing ovations at all stages of the competition!). They are also nominated for a Blues Music Award and a Blues Blast Music Award as “best new Artist”, as well as for the “Sean Costello Rising Start Award” for 2013.

This group is being touted as one of the hottest most original bands to hit the blues scene in years.
