    From The Jam

    Mod

    From The Jam is comprised of legendary former ‘The Jam’ bassist Bruce Foxton, vocalist & guitarist Russell Hastings, drummer Mike Randon, and Andy Fairclough on Hammond and piano.

    This Autumn, From the Jam will be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Jam’s 3rd studio album, 'All Mod Cons', playing it in it’s entirety. As well as classics such as ‘Down In The Tube Station At Midnight’ and ‘A Bomb In Wardour Street’ the band are also excited about playing ‘Billy Hunt’, ‘Mr Clean’ and more.

    In 2007 Russell Hastings was fronting ‘The Gift’ (which featured Rick Buckler) when he was joined on stage by Bruce Foxton (who was touring with Casbah Club) for a ‘one off’ performance. This performance sparked the genesis of From The Jam, and an enduring partnership between Foxton & Hastings.

    Off-stage Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings wrote the album, ‘Back In The Room’ released in 2012, which received critical acclaim and solidified Foxton & Hastings as an excellent and contemporary song writing duo. They then returned to the studio in 2016 to record and release ‘Smash The Clock’, which reached number 31 in the UK charts.

    At the end of 2017, Bruce Foxton & Russell Hastings released the 'From the Jam Live!' album which celebrated the 10th anniversary of From the Jam's inception.

    Nine Below Zero

    Jazz

    One of the UK's finest Rhythm & Blues Bands, Nine Below Zero, formed in 1979 and named themselves after the famous Sonny Boy Williamson song. In 1980 they signed to A&M Records and released the seminal "Live at the Marquee" album. By the end of that year they had moved from selling out the Marquee to selling out the Hammersmith Odeon. In 1981 their first studio album "Don't Point Your Finger" and the band made appearances on the Old Grey Whistle Test and the South Bank show. In 1982 they appeared on "The Young Ones" with the track "Eleven + Eleven" before releasing arguably their finest album "Third Degree" which features such tracks as "Wipe Away Your Kiss" & "You Can't Say Yes And You Can't Say No". The album's iconic image was taken by none other than David Bailey.

    Nine Below Zero have shared stages over the years with Chuck Berry, The Kinks, The Who, Eric Clapton, & Squeeze.
