C-Jam 1

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 Brain Badhams (keyboards and vocals), currently with Elkie Brooks. Brian Wilson (lead guitar/vocals) spent many years with the Gibbons Band, touring the USA 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 saxophonist Sam Rogers first came to notice with the Walsall Jazz Orchestra.
