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.
Andy Just and Friends
Andy Just is one of the hardest working musicians on the blues scene today. Andy's formative musical years were the 70s when he became hooked by the then thriving Bay Area blues scene. Along with artists like Michael Bloomfield, Elvin Bishop, and Charlie Musselwhite, who had moved to the San Francisco area, there also came the Charles Ford Band featuring the three Ford brothers. The young Just and his good friend Chris Cain were so affected by all they were hearing that they formed a blues band together and began to make their own impact. Andy fronted his own band through most of the 80s and did considerable sideman work with artists like Fenton Robinson, Luther Tucker, John Lee Hooker, Larry Williams, and Lowell Fulson. In 1989 he replaced Mark Ford in the Ford Blues Band and though he continues to do work on his own projects he has remained the solid "front man" for the Ford Blues Band ever since.
His recording credits include five LP/CD releases of his own as well as many other recordings with artists such as Chris Cain, Luther Tucker, and Lowell Fulson. Andy can also be heard on many TV commercials and movie soundtracks.
Without a doubt, Andy is the most powerful harp player to come along since James Cotton, and while he can emulate Sonny Boy Williamson one minute and Charlie Parker the next, the fact is that Andy Just is an original, an innovator, and enthralling to catch live or on disk.
Andy's Blue Rock'It Records recording titled "Don't Cry" has been praised for its musical virtuosity and innovation. His new release, "Play That Fast Thing" is a real "tour de force" that should serve as a wake up call to those who have not yet heard of Andy Just.
