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.

Terry Hanck

Terry Hanck is a classic case of "paying one's dues" before fame comes calling. After 30-odd years of playing alongside more celebrated blues artists like Elvin Bishop, Etta James, Albert Collins, Bonnie Raitt, Steve Miller, Robert Cray, Charlie Musselwhite, and a host of other big-name performers, it's high time for Mr. Hanck to come into his own!

The superbly powerful tenor saxophonist and vocalist was born in Chicago but has made California his home base. Mr. Hanck has succeeded in creating a sexy and exciting musical "period piece" that centers around late '50s/early '60s blues and r&b (think Ben E. King, Percy Sledge, Junior Walker & the All-Stars, Sam and Dave, etc.). There's even some big-band influence thrown in for good measure!

Mr. Hanck composed (with additional credit given to Old Toby Pub) almost half of the 14 tracks, which fit right in with well-chosen covers by Eddie Bo, H.P. Barnum, D. Bartholomew/P.King, Clara Wills, D. Malone/J. Scott and James Wayne, to complete the overall theme of healing a broken heart. Practically the entire collection is a ready-made soundtrack for a filmmaker intent on capturing the sophisticated sounds of that time period.
