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.
Marina Crouse is ...
an emerging vocal talent in the San Francisco Bay Area blues and jazz scene. Her early classical training is evident in a powerful, riveting style that pays homage to the songs she loves while making them wholly her own.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT MARINA CROUSE
" A new voice as strong as the best blues singers of the past as she sings with the intensity of a Koko Taylor, heartbreak of Etta James, raw emotion of Big Maybelle... Marina Crouse has all it takes to be the next top lady of the Blues. Marina is a bad bad Blues singing woman, so get ready, Marina's got the Blues."
~ Noel Hayes, DJ at KPOO 89.5FM
" Marina Crouse is long overdue her day in the sun. This big, delicious voice deserves to be heard! Really soulful."
~Danny Caron, guitarist and former musical director with Charles Brown

What do Miles Davis, Gregg Allman, Bill Champlin, Lydia Pense/Cold Blood, Merl Saunders, John Lee Hooker, Mose Allison, Boz Scaggs and Kingfish all have in common?
Guitarist: GARTH WEBBER
Long recognized by his peers for his dynamic style and technical dexterity, Webber is perhaps most highly regarded for his signature guitar tone. A first call player in the Jazz, Blues, Funk and Rock arenas, this Berkeley based musician is always in demand. Equally comfortable sharing the stage with Miles Davis as he is with John Lee Hooker, Webber has the unusual distinction of playing with people who are reknown for one specific style.
On the international road, Garth has touredEurope and South America with Miles Davis; the good old U.S. with Bob Weir and Kingfish; and the West Coast with Gregg Allman, Lydia Pense & Cold Blood, Merl Saunders, and The Blue Meanies.
Webber has also released three internationally sold solo CD's and has a fourth on the way! He has played on commercails for Levi's Jeans, Mattel Toys, Sizzler, AM PM Mini Market and more.
When Garth isn't playing, he's busy in his fully professional 48-track recording studio producing CD's for Bay area bands.
