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.
Quique Gómez
Quique Gómez
Quique Gomez, the Spanish-born vocalist/harmonica player is no stranger to fans on both sides of the Atlantic, having worked with several top bluesmen and traveling the world since first visiting Chicago. He delivers a set of Windy City-flavored blues in his latest album, Dealin' with the Blues, recorded in his hometown of Madrid but mastered by Kid Andersen at Greaseland Studios in California.

Now in his early 40s, Gomez began playing harp at age 18 and migrated to the Windy City for the first time in 2008, quickly establishing himself. He’s toured with a who’s who of talent, including Chicagoans John Primer, Eddie C. Campbell, Jimmy Burns, Taildragger and Rockin’ Johnny Burgin as well as Canadian keyboard player Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne.

Quique’s no stranger to the recording studio, having served as a sideman on about a dozen CDs, and he works frequently with Italian guitarist Luca Giordano, often joining him to back Stateside musicians during European tours. The pair have collaborated on two releases, Dead Mama Blues, recorded in Italy in 2009, and 3011 Studio Sessions, captured in Chicago in 2012. And he paired with Brazilian guitarist Netto Rockefeller on another album, Bahia Times, two years later.

He’s an excellent harp player in the Chicago tradition, and possesses a clear, strong baritone voice.

Dealin’ With The Blues is a rock-solid debut that’s available direct through www.sweetrecordslabel.com. It will be interesting to hear what Quique does next. An album with Rockin’ Johnny is currently in the planning stages.
