Big Jim & the Black Cat Bones – Blues, Jive & Rock n Roll
Mar 13 @ 8:30 pm – 11:00 pm
Big Jim & the Black Cat Bones - Blues, Jive & Rock n Roll

On Friday 13th March, Black Country blues & roots vocal/harmonica legend Big Jim, former frontman of the excellent Red Lemon Electric Blues Band, returns 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.

Not So Young – A Tribute to Neil Young

Not So Young - A Tribute to Neil Young

On Saturday 14th March we welcome Not So Young for their first visit to Joe Joe Jims with their tribute to Neil Young who aim to “capture a unique and spirited live sound covering all eras, from singer songwriter, to country, blues, rock, grunge and psychedelia“.

The Birmingham 5-piece band have been together since 2006 and perform a well-crafted show, showcasing the full breadth of Neil Young’s musical output, from the 1960s to the present-day, and features Dave Johnson (vocals, guitar, harmonica & violin), Gareth Austin (vocals & guitar), Graham Jones (vocals & guitar), Mike Burton (bass) and Toby Wilson (drums).

So if you wish to Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World, Don’t Let it Bring You Down and come along for what promises to be a great night of music from one of the world’s most prolific and enduring icons (there was a pun on Southern Man and South Birmingham but I thought that might be over-egging the pudding!).

Dizzy Lizzy – A Tribute to Phil Lynott & Thin Lizzy!

Dizzy Lizzy - A Tribute to Phil Lynott & Thin Lizzy!

In anticipation of St Patrick’s Day, on Sunday 15th March we have a surprise gig from the awesome Dizzy Lizzy and their tribute to Ireland’s finest, Phil Lynott & Thin Lizzy!

One of the country’s leading and most dynamic tribute acts, they are the only act to have headlined both, the ‘Vibe for Philo’ in Dublin & ‘Remember Phil & Gary’ event in Holland. Although based in the Midlands, Dizzy Lizzy tour extensively throughout the UK/Europe & have performed as far afield as Los Angeles, Abu Dhabi & Dubai.

Philomena Lynott, Phil’s Mom no less, stated that Dizzy Lizzy are ‘the closest to playing my sons music‘ a great endorsement indeed! Dizzy Lizzy do indeed have an amazing sound and resemblance to the classic 70s & 80s rock band and will take you back in time to relive that magical musical era with a superb blend of classic foot stomping rock anthems and emotive rock ballads.

Rock Bottom UK - A Tribute to UFO & Michael Schenker

On Saturday 11th July we present the first visit to Joe Joe Jims of UFO/Schenker tribute band Rock Bottom UK.

Rock Bottom (UK) was formed in 2012 by a group of experienced musicians united by a love of classic UFO / Michael Schenker Group and play a 2 hour high energy stage show which draws heavily from the “Strangers In The Night” and “One Night At Budokan” live albums blending quality musicianship, driving on-stage energy and authentic tones from that magical 70’s and early 80’s era.

Featuring Liam Evans (Vocals), Mark Birdsall (Lead Guitar), Neil “Fozzy” Foster (Bass), Geoff Potts (Keyboards/Rhythm Guitar) and Phil Rusling (Drums), the band’s setlist features such gems as Into The Arena, Love To Love, Lights Out and Doctor Doctor among many, many other classic tracks.

We’re selling tickets in advance for this gig and as we’re expecting high-demand, it may sellout before the gig – judging by last year it was a very, very popular event – so we’d recommending booking early.
