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.
Leah's songs present a fresh sound you won't hear from anyone else. Her style is very playful yet deeply expressive all at once and the sound pulls from her love of soul, blues and folk music and the beauty of well-crafted song from any genre.
Leah has played for audiences from The Monterey Blues Festival to Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee and her songs have been featured on radio across the country and in Europe. Since arriving in California in 1998, Leah has also been a featured soloist at Glide Memorial Church in San Francisco and can be seen singing in the film "The Pursuit of Happyness" with Will Smith, filmed partially at Glide Memorial.
Her first album "Real Good Fire" has met great success, receiving songwriting accolades from Billboard for Best R&B/Blues Song of 2008. Her follow-up album "Love Again", is a soulful blend of infectious grooves and lyrical songwritiing, featuring an all-star line-up of musicians including co/producer Mike Blankenship (Lauryn Hill, Ledisi, Sheila E.).
