Big Q Fish - Jazzers Who Rock, Rockers Who Jazz!

On Wednesday 16th October we’re excited to present Big Q Fish for their first visit to Joe Joe Jims … although the keen eyed amongst you will recognise bassist Mike Hatton from Steve Ajao’s Blues Giants.

The band’s tagline is ‘jazzers who rock, rockers who jazz‘ and the band offer quite an original concept having two guises: that of Jazz and improv-based music, following paths set by the likes of John Scofield and Bill Frisell, and that of their ‘rocker’ side playing a range of classic chart hits from the likes of the Beatles, Bowie, T-Rex and the Clash.

The band, featuring Brian Neil (guitar/vocals), Mike Hatton (bass/vocal) and Marcus Ingham (drums), are certainly one not to be missed and on top of that mouthwatering musical prospect … the gig is part of our FREE Wednesday sessions!

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.
