Club Fox Blues Jam
Club Fox Blues Jam
The Club Fox Blues Jam is heaven on earth for Bay Area blues fans. Through the efforts of a passionate group of local musicians, the hospitality of the Club Fox and local sponsorship, the jam has become the most exciting event in the area's fertile blues scene - and it's attracting both national and international attention. Most importantly, the jam is the catalyst for bringing out more and more blues fans to hear live blues at its spontaneous best.

Every Wednesday from 7 PM to 11 PM, the beautiful historic Club Fox opens its doors to the jam hosted by the elite of Bay Area Blues - Kenny Neal, Steve Freund, Elvin Bishop, Tommy Castro, Rick Estrin, The Ford Blues Band, Volker Strifler, Andy Just, E. C. Scott, Terry Hanck, Kenny Blue Ray, Sonny Rhodes, Daniel Castro, RJ Mischo and Mark Hummel just to mention a few. What follows is a jam like no other. For a mere $5.00 cover charge, folks get to experience some of the finest blues artists, national artists on tour, local luminaries and talented amateurs mixing it up. For the musicians, it's an opportunity to play the blues with peers of unbelievable talent. For the fans in the 240 seat capacity crowd, it's an amazing show every week with new talent and the unpredictable excitement that only a blues jam can bring.

If the music were not enough, appearances at the jam provide an unparalleled promotional opportunity for artists with upcoming area gigs. The buzz following the jam in the highly active local blues community often results in sold-out shows for participating artists. If you are a touring blues performer, drop in and you'll not only get a chance to "cut heads" with the best but also get the word out about your upcoming gig. If you are a member of the blues entertainment media, you'll experience a jam session like no other .

We invite you to come to jam and be a part of this phenomenal event, unequaled since the hay days of LA and Chicago blues.

Join us for the music and be a part of Bay Area blues history.
The Taylor P. Collins Band
The Taylor P. Collins Band
Ms. Taylor P. Collins, the oldest of five children and award winning vocalist, was born in Norfolk, Va on Friday the Thirteenth in the middle of one of the worst blizzards Norfolk had ever seen. When Taylor was older her mother told her that she knew there was something very special about Taylor then, but little did she know that her daughter would emerge as one of the leading female vocalists in the San Francisco Bay Area in the world of Blues. Taylor sang Rock for a number of years before finding her niche in the Blues. Her mother Mrs. Ethel Garner, an accomplished Gospel pianist and vocalist, and her uncle George Hicks were very instrumental in Taylor's musical upbringing and helped shape the sound that is uniquely Taylor today.

Taylor's style of Blues is sophisticated, powerful, and funky with jazz overtones presented as only Taylor can with her commanding stage presence, flash and glitz and her riveting 8pc band which currently boasts six women and two men with a 4pc all female horn section called The First Ladies of Horn and they represent the best of the best in the SF Bay Area. She has performed at the Monterey Bay Blues Festival, San Jose International Jazz Festival, San Jose America Festival, Sacramento Heritage Festival, Fountain Blues Festival, The Vallejo Jazz Festival, Fountain Blues Festival, and the AT&T Golf Tournament in Carmel Valley to name a few.

Taylor has performed in the company of industry legends such as Etta James, The Neville Brothers, Barbara Morrison, Albert Collins, James Cotton, Gladys Knight, and Kenny Neal. She has also performed with her dear friend and mentor the legendary Ruth Brown and has opened for and performed with John Handy, LaVerne Baker, and Jefferson Starship.
