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.
Kid Andersen
Kid Andersen
"Kid" Andersen (born January 15, 1980) is a blues guitarist from Herre, Norway.

By age 11, Andersen had gained the attention of Norwegian blues guitar teacher, Morten Omlid, who steered him towards traditional blues music. By the time he was 18, he was backing all the American blues stars who came through Norway, including Homesick James, Nappy Brown and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. In 2001, with guidance and encouragement from multiple BMA winning saxophonist, Terry Hanck, Kid moved to California at the age of 21. Once in the U.S.A., Andersen earned a green card as an “Alien of Extraordinary Ability.” He toured and recorded with Terry for three years, and also released four well received solo albums under his own name during this time.
Andersen later played in Charlie Musselwhite's band and got a Blues Music Award (formerly W.C. Handy Award) for best contemporary blues album for Charlie Musselwhite's Delta Hardware.Then, when Little Charlie Baty retired from touring, Andersen took his place as guitarist in the Nightcats, and the new name of Rick Estrin & the Nightcats was formed. Andersen has also done extensive touring with Elvin Bishop on the Red Dog Speaks Tour. He is married to American Idol finalist Lisa Leuschner. They currently reside in San Jose, California where Andersen is CEO of Greaseland Studios.

In 2013, Andersen was nominated for a Blues Music Award in the 'Gibson Guitar' category. In 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 he was nominated for a Blues Music Award in the 'Best Instrumentalist – Guitar' category.

During the past 5 years Kid Andersen also gained a solid reputation of musical producer using his own recording facility.
Andersen’s Greaseland Studio, winner of the 2017 Keeping The Blues Alive Award, has been the highly regarded scene of recordings by artists including Elvin Bishop, John Nemeth, Wee Willie Walker, Finis Tasby, and Billy Price as well as all three Rick Estrin & the Nightcats studio CDs.. In 2017 he also produced several albums including "Stompin' Ground" from Tommy Castro & The Painkillers as well as John Blues Boyd,a blues veteran. He recorded and mixed the Grammy nominated “Remembering Little Walter” in 2015.

The Club Fox show will feature Andersen’s Greaseland All-Stars, a revolving door of world class talent, and featured lead singers on this night’s show, besides Kid, will be his wife Lisa, as well as the aforementioned Blues powerhouse singer John Blues Boyd.
John Blues Boyd
John Blues Boyd
American singer/songwriter. Cousin to bluesman Eddie Boyd. John was born in Greenwood, MS, in 1945 and began working the delta cotton fields at seven years of age. Until he retired from hot tar roofing in 2007 to care for his ailing wife, blues singing and hard labor were the two constants in his life.

When his beloved wife of 49 years Dona Mae, passed in 2014, John turned to the refuge of the blues for solace. In dealing with his grief, John discovered a previously undeveloped talent for songwriting.
