Big Jim & the Black Cat Bones – Blues, Jive & Rock n Roll
Nov 1 @ 8:30 pm – 11:00 pm
Big Jim & the Black Cat Bones - Blues, Jive & Rock n Roll

On Friday 1st November, Black Country blues & roots vocal/harmonica legend Big Jim, former frontman of the excellent Red Lemon Electric Blues Band, comes to Joe Joe Jims with the red-hot rockin’ combo Black Cat Bones for what will be a great night of blues tinged rock & roll!

The musical pedigree of the Black Cat Bones is strong with the band featuring Andy Harris on bass & Pete Wheatley on guitar (both of whom some may remember from Stourbridge prog rock band Ark), Colin Edmonds on drums (who some may recall being AKA Duke Delight in the Redbeards from Texas many moons ago), Ken Moore on keys (a boogie woogie maestro who has played all over Europe for the last 20 years) and, of course, Big Jim Merris on vocals and harmonica (who regular visitors to Joe Joe Jims will have seen joining Vincent Flatts Final Drive on stage to provide some ass kickin’ blues harp).

Describing their musical style as ‘Blues Soul Rock n Roll Jump Jive Ska’ the boys state their approach as “just a bunch of good friends making music together without any concerns or pretensions” … and we’re really looking forward to seeing them at Joe Joe Jims.

We are pleased to have secured the services of the excellent classic Black Sabbath tribute band Children of the Gravy for a night of music from the fathers of heavy metal on Saturday 23rd November.

The band’s aim is to provide a rock-solid, authentic show, featuring an array of Ozzy-era Sabbath classics, with a large helping of humour thrown in, with the following mission statement: “We blast em out (no ballads, and don’t ask us for “Changes” or I’ll bite the head off your dog) Just all the rocking Sabbath stuff you remember, and some that Sabbath never or rarely played live” … who could ask for more?

So, if you want to hear Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Into the Void, Killing Yourself to Live/National Acrobat and War Pigs played live and loud – and as close sounding as you’ll get to early Sabbath – then this is a gig you won’t want to miss!

We are expecting high demand for this gig and are selling tickets in advance online through Facebook/Eventbrite:

Miguel Montalban & the Southern Vultures + The Temple St Resistance

On Saturday 7th December, in association with Erndor50, we are excited to present a double-header featuring Chilean guitarist Miguel Montalban & the Southern Vultures and the excellent Temple St Resistance.

The Temple St. Resistance are two brothers (The Son’s of Trevor Burton) with roots that reach deep into the Birmingham music scene. They play UK urban country blues with a kick: affecting lyrics, twisted melodies, stomping grooves. Heavy like a feather and light as lead, they’ll lift you and lull you and leave you flat on your back, whiskey drenched, sweat soaked, your head reeling but your soul craving more.

Miguel Montalban is now recognised all over the world thanks to the success of his albums and a series of street performances in Europe. His arrangement of Dire Straits’s song “Sultans of Swing” was a viral hit on YouTube ranking OVER 10 millions views! Miguel represents in London The International Busking Day and took him to meet Mark Knopfler at a Private Event organised and produced by Gibson Guitars and Busking London exclusively.

In Paris Miguel opened the International Motor Show in London and was Introduced to the stage by Rod Stewart at Cancer Trust Concert at The Victoria And Albert Museum in front of Alice Cooper, Peter Frampton, Tom Jones, and sharing stage with Chris Farlowe and Mike D’Abo and is currently working on a new blues rock album with his band, The Southern Vultures.

This is a not-to-be-missed chance to see two great bands playing in an intimate setting and as we are expecting high-demand for the gig, we are selling tickets in advance at the bar and via Eventbrite at £8.00 (Tickets on the door will be £10.00 if there are any remaining by the time of the gig).
