The Maz Mitrenko Band – Powerful Blues Rock
Sep 13 @ 8:30 pm – 11:00 pm
The Maz Mitrenko Band - Powerful Blues Rock

For blues-rock aficionados, Maz Mitrenko will need no introduction – but for the uninitiated, after many years working alongside the legendary Trevor Burton, guitarist/vocalist Maz formed The Maz Mitrenko Band band in 2006 and they have gone from strength-to-strength, providing “a mixture of finely honed original songs alongside a range of classic blues and rock covers from the likes of Rory Gallagher and Jimi Hendrix”.

The Band, also featuring bassist Pete Vickers (Tony McPhee, Andy Hart) and drummer Phil Brittle (The Band Of Joy, Quill), are currently working on a fourth album for release in 2019 but are taking time-out for a few gigs and this will definitely be a show not to miss.

Vaseline – Punk Rock

On Saturday 14th September we’re pleased to present something a little different for Joe Joe Jims – our first punk band: Rubery’s very own Vaseline!

The band features former Birmingham Poet Laureate Spoz on guitar and vocals, Toppo on drums and vocals, Ratty on guitar and Couchy on bass and vocals. Spoz describes the live Vaseline experience as “chock full of 70s punk rock nostalgia, jumping about and strange hair cuts“!

Intrigued? Then get down to Joe Joe Jims on the night for what should be an energetic, highly charged performance.

Maggie Bell & Dave Kelly – An Evening with …
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm
Maggie Bell & Dave Kelly - An Evening with ...

We are very excited to have secured the services of two stalwarts of the British R&B scene – two great voices, two great reputations – for a wonderful evening of acoustic blues, soul and good times, and no doubt a little humour.

Maggie BellScotland’s Queen of Soul, founder member of Stone the Crows, later had an incredibly successful solo career on both sides of the Atlantic, now once again back on the music scene after a 20 year lay off. She was a resounding hit at the Led Zeppelin reunion concert in 2008.

Dave Kelly London’s slide guitar king, having learned his trade in the backing bands of, and recording with, Son House, Howlin Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells to name but five blues legends, a founder member of The Blues Band, still wowing audiences after nearly 30 years.

This is no slick show wheeled out with any predictability. Indeed when Maggie and Dave take to the stage ‘anything can happen’ (and often does)!

The Delray Rockets – High Octane Rockabilly
Sep 22 @ 8:30 pm – 11:00 pm
The Delray Rockets - High Octane Rockabilly

The Delray Rockets are a three-piece Rockabilly band that deliver one hell of a live punch with their energetic, fast-paced show – “putting the ‘Rock’ into Rockabilly” – and we are delighted to welcome them back to Joe Joe Jims on Sunday 22nd September.

As the band themselves point out, “don’t be fooled by the onstage setup of a double bass, Gretsch guitar and stripped down drum kit, looks can be deceiving. Once the amps are flicked on and the first beat is struck, hold onto your hats cos’ you’re in for a hell of a ride.”

Whatever style of music floats your boat, we can guarantee you’ll have a job sitting still to the Delray Rockets and your foot will be tapping in no time … maybe even experiencing the undeniable urge to dance!

The Marwills – Canadian Blues Rockers

We are fortunate to have secured the services of Toronto-based blues rock band The Marwills on Saturday 12th October for a date on their short tour of the UK in support of their latest album A Mother’s Worry.

Major players in the US and Canadian rock market and frequent festival headliners, The Marwills are planning to take-on Europe and the UK in 2019 so this gig should be a great opportunity to catch them in an intimate environment! The band “make music with serious guts and they sweat while they do it. Their sound conjures smoky blues bars, shady drinking establishments, and the golden age of rock and roll”.

We’re sure the band are destined for big things this side of the pond and are hoping for a great turnout to welcome them to both Joe Joe Jims and the UK!
