Barnes, London. Friday 13-February-2013
My second time of seeing Jules and The Gamblers. Last time was at The Old Frizzle on Wimbledon Broadway. There I got the impression the set list was geared to background music for the drinkers; this time it was more like the Chicago Blues that they really wanted to play!
Jules plays the harp - he had a box full of them which he played with verve. The guy in the hat is a guest guitarist and the uber-cool guy in the shades in my brother-in-law, Pete. Not visible in this picture are drums and keyboard.
I met up early with sister Jane for a drink and a quick bite and a chat; friends Jane and Brock joined us later and then, after a nourishing supper of beer and chips, we made our way into the Jazz Room.
The Bull's Head is an excellent music venue, the room is small enough that you are close up to the band and can see everything. Jules & Co played two sets and at £9 that strikes me a mega-excellent value for some classic blues. Another grand night out.
