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 Rae Gordon Band
The Rae Gordon Band
“Gordon had the audience in the palm of her hand”
– Oregon Music News

“When the band launches into the more rollicking numbers, hands start waving”
- Willamette Week.

The Rae Gordon Band brings together award winning and nominated musicians and is fronted by the 2014 Muddy Award Winner for Best Female Vocalist (Cascade Blues Association). They have played the big and little stages of northwest’s favorite clubs, dance floors and festivals helping to mold their signature sound that spans from a danceable get up and groove to a haunting slide tone that will make you want to find a back porch and sit a spell. Rae enjoys playing intimate venues where she can connect one on one with people in the audience to large festivals where she can connect with a whole community.

Their much awaited recent CD release of original tunes, which was produced and co-written with RGB guitar player Gaddis Cavenah called “Blue Lemonade” debuted in 2013 to a sold out venue and rave reviews. It highlights Gordon’s extensive range and ability to move effortlessly from soul to blues infused gospel. In July of 2013, it hit the Billboard Charts for Blues at number 10 and held that spot for 2 weeks. The CD was recently nominated as Best NW Recording by the Cascade Blues Association and is being sent as a contender for the best self produced recording by the Blues Association.

“They have struck pay dirt in bringing out the beauty of Rae’s vocal abilities”…“Listening to the disc leaves no question on why she is a perennial nominee for female vocalist in the Cascade Blues Association’s Muddy Awards” “Blue Lemonade is a deeply accomplished work with superb original songwriting that stands up to the best releases of recent years anywhere”…Greg Johnson, President of the Cascade Blues Association.

It is currently getting airplay in Portland Radio markets including KINK FM, KMHD, Eugene, Kansas City, back east and has recently crossed the pond to the radio listeners of England.

In summer of 2013, RGB opened for Lydia Pense and Cold Blood and was a band semi finalist in the 2015 International Blues Challenge in the renowned contest held every year on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee.

Rae Gordon Band performances are not only a show, but a celebration, as Gordon follows the policy that a stranger is just a friend you haven’t met…yet.
“Add equal parts of Janis Joplin’s pain, Aretha Franklin’s soul and Grace Slick’s power; mix them thoroughly, and add a big gob of gooey molasses and you have Rae Gordon’s voice” …
