Blues 'n' Jam Night February 2024 edition :


"Yeah, dear blues afficionados, last night we all had a ball with the fabulous Bluesdoctors, cranking up their amps and delivering that goodtime, mean big city blues, executed with vigorous vocals, snappy & funky drumming rhythms, pumping bass lines and some real dirty guitarchops - all in all that nasty kinda Blues we all love.

So big thx to the band for playing our li'l venue & tearing down the house"
