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.
Motordude Zydeco
Motordude Zydeco
Formed in 1989, MotorDude Zydeco plays the infectious dance music of the Creole people of Southwest Louisiana known as “zydeco.” The Acadians (Cajuns), who had come from France via Canada in search of political freedom, originally brought the music to Louisiana. Adopting the adapting the music of the Cajuns, the Creoles added their own bluesy, rockin’ elements and called it zydeco.

MotorDude Zydeco has become one of the leading exponents of this raucous style. Having performed in a wide variety of venues throughout the Bay Area and beyond, the band has developed a strong following of dancers who practice the traditional waltzes, two-steps, and zydeco-shuffle dance styles. Through the efforts of MotorDude Zydeco and other local acts, the Bay Area has become the most thriving Cajun and zydeco scene outside Louisiana.

Utilizing the instrumentation of piano accordion, button accordion, fratoir (or rubboard), guitar, bass, and drums, MotorDude Zydeco creates a distinctive yet roots-oriented music blending traditional zydeco with original songs and rhythm and blues. The group packs any dance floor.
