Event Summary

This September join us at the Victoria Theatre for X Fest featuring music from From The Jam, The Blockheads and Natural Rhythm Ska Band.

About the bands -

From The Jam

From the Jam features Bruce Foxton from the original Jam line up. He also spent 15 years playing bass with Stiff Little Fingers. Bruce is joined by Russell Hastings on lead vocal and guitar.

From The Jam have gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary ‘live’ performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago. Audiences can expect to hear classic The Jam hits such as Down In The Tube Station At Midnight, Going Underground, Town Called Malice and The Modern World as well as some live favourites and songs from Bruce’s solo career.

The Blockheads

Formed in 1977 to promote Ian Dury's album New Boots and Panties on the first Stiff Records tour of the UK. The Blockheads are fronted by Derek 'The Draw' Hussey, who was Ian's best friend and is now the band's vocalist and wordsmith. Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, John Turnbull and Mick Gallagher still remain from the original band and the current line-up is augmented by John Roberts on drums and a rolling line up of saxophonists including Gilad Atzmon, Terry Edwards or Dave Lewis. These legendary Brit-Funkers will be playing all the old favourites and new material.

Natural Rhythm Ska Band

Natural Rhythm Ska band formed in Bradford in the 80s by Anthony 'Bootsy' Boyce. They were a big part of the 'second wave' ska boom!. As a band they continue to play the music, most close to their hearts - Ska Bluebeat!!!

Price: 31.75
