C-JAM’s repertoire is large and varied, ranging from cool jazz sounds to stomping blues/R&B and soul favourites. The experienced line-up includes three ex-members of the Steve Gibbons Band, including Brian Badhams (keyboards and vocals), currently with Elkie Brooks. Brian Wilson (lead guitar/vocals) spent many years with the Gibbons Band, touring the States supporting The Who, and worked with the Ruby Turner Band for a number of years. Drummer Brendan Day’s 12 years with the Gibbons Band have been followed by work with the Dylan Project and Fairport Convention among many others. Bassist Frank Walker’s colourful music career includes working with Glenn Tipton in the Flying Hat Band and appearing with Alvin Stardust, whilst saxist Sam Rogers first came to notice with the Walsall Jazz Orchestra and was then offered a scholarship to study Music at Miami State University.
C-Jam are appearing at Artwork Gallery & Cafe at 12:30pm on Saturday 6th, The Brasshouse at 3pm on Sunday 7th and The Solomon Cutler at 8pm on Monday 8th
