The Hot Club of Philadelphia may be dedicated to playing the music of Django Reinhardt, but as advertised, they add their own voices and mentalities into the mix, and often infuse Latin and more traditional swing styles into the mix. All of the members have impeccable chops and unwavering musicality

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

The Hot Club of Philadelphia was started in 2001 by guitarist Barry Wahrhaftig. They are an acoustic ensemble, dedicated to playing 'Gypsy Jazz.' That's the term used to describe the music pioneered by the legendary original 'Hot Club of France Quintet,' which was led by guitarist Django Reinhardt and Violinist Stephane Grappelli. Django and Grappelli were attempting to do their own version of American 'Hot Jazz,' as played by stars like Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. They used acoustic guitars, bass and violin, rather than horns and drums. Grappelli and Django added some French and Gypsy flavor and created a blend of music that is quite popular and accessible. The HCPhilly mixes the original style of the HCOF, along with their own modern influences.

The band performs as a trio, quartet, quintet, etc. There have been some changes in the line up through the years. Bassist Jim Stager has been with the group from the beginning. Joshua Machiz, Alexandre Hiele and Dylan Taylor all perform with the band frequently. Dan Pearce is the 2nd guitarist, and violinist Joseph Arnold is a key part of the group's recordings and shows, and clarinetists Bob Butryn and Paul Butler are also mainstays.

The band features vocalists Phyllis Chapell and Cecilia Ferneborg, and has also collaborated with Denise King. Barry also sings, and he'll add a Sinatra or Nat King Cole standard, in addition to songs of the 20's 30's & 40's.

The group has performed for a wide range of venues, including; The Kimmel Center's PIFA Festival, the area's first 'Diner en Blanc', The World Café Live, Sellersville Theater, WHYY-NPR, Musikfest-Bethlehem, Pastorius Park Summer Festival, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, The Barnes Foundation & The Phila Museum of Art, to name a few.

Their first CD, 'Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams,' 2010 was very well received. Their new release, 'Gypsy Routes', [2015], features guest spots by Howard Alden, Titi Bamberger, Larry McKenna, Phyllis Chapell and Marty Grosz.

Jamey's is pleased to present our good friend, and his good friend for a night of superlative home made music!

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Bob and Paul have known each other for quite awhile. They met when Bob would sit in with the Mason Porter Band. A few years ago they did a few shows together as a duo and soon realized that something clicked and they should pursue this sound a little more. The result of this pursuit has been an 8 song recording that one DJ has described as “full of Clever Covers”. This recording is a combination of blues, gospel, folk and rock tunes and a perfect example of Bob and Paul’s live show.

Bob Beach’s career has spanned almost 50 years. With his roots in blues, rock and folk, his innate feel for the music transcends genre, and can be integrated into everything from hip hop to bluegrass to kids’ cabaret and more. In addition to masterful harmonica, Bob’s skills include strong percussive flute work, and soulful vocals. When not touring you can find Bob performing and recording with many Philadelphia and east coast artists.

Paul Wilkinson has been performing for 15 years.  His musical instincts are founded on the charisma of Taj Mahal, the subtlety of Mississippi John Hurt, and the omnipresence of Bob Dylan in his life.  He also can be found playing with the regional act Mason Porter or the Chester County blues band The Rolling Thunder Blues Revue.

His favorite quote about his music is:
“I hate folk music, but I absolutely LOVE Joe Crookston’s music!”

“Joe Crookston is decidedly one of today's standout troubadours. ” –
-- Roots Music Examiner

Concert - $20 online advance / $25 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Joe Crookston is a songwriter, guitarist, painter, fiddler, eco-village member and believer in all things possible.  Named 2016 Folk Alliance International Artist-in- Residence and signed to Tamulevich Artist Management. He’s not afraid to walk outside trends and create his own version of magic.  His recording Able Baker Charlie & Dog was awarded Album of the Year by Folk alliance International.   He will surprise you and he’ll awaken the cynics.   His songs are being made into films and are being printed in songbooks.  Joe’s live performances are multi-media celebrations of art and possibility with looped fiddle, video, slide guitar and SONGS. He’s a bard in the modern world plumbing for lyrical gold like a social archeologist.  His story songs are universal, his slide playing infectious, and on stage he’s funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next.    

Come to a show. Travel mystical, historical, and humorous roads, and twist through lush sonic landscapes along the way.  Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, Taoist parables and drunk roosters. At the end of the night, you’ll leave inspired. The Long Note in Irish culture is that place of resonance and transcendence where the music, the voices, the instruments, and the community ALL come together and unite. There IS a “Long Note” and Joe is courting it fiercely. 

Watch a YouTube video. It’s good, but it’s not the same.

You gotta come to the show.

Active since 1998 and based in the Philly area, Dave Orban & the Mojo Gypsies are a high-energy quartet that play a unique blend of up-tempo blues and old-school R&B. Bandleader Dave Orban – an International Blues Hall of Fame inductee – has performed with or supported such national acts as James Harman, Debbie Davies, Rick Estrin and the Nightcats, Steve Guyger, Lucky Peterson, Murali Coryell, and Selwyn Birchwood.

“The band’s music integrates many influences from the greater blues tradition – from Chicago and West Coast electric blues to southern country blues and even New Orleans-styled marches. With a repertoire that shines a light on lesser-known but compelling tunes from the pioneers of the blues form, the band looks to impart a contemporary feel to a traditional form, while not departing drastically from the foundational elements of this type of music.”

Their CD, "I Heard You Twice the First Time," containing 14 of Orban’s original tunes, is available now on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, CD Baby, Spotify, etc.

“Influences ranging from Willie Dixon to Bob Dylan to the Rolling Stones and even Norah Jones can be heard in Orban’s original tunes. His songs are self-contained stories in their own right, and cover a variety of topics that can be both humorous as well as more serious.”

"Keep an eye out folks, cause this band is gonna take the blues world by storm and there ain't nothing that can stop us from doing what we love to the fullest!"

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Hey ya'll I'm Harmonica Slim and I'd love to share the ride with you! Born and raised just outside of Philadelphia I grew up in a blue collar neighborhood where things are simple, the Eagles were a way life, and a good day meant playing hockey without getting in a fist fight with your buddy. I love it all, and its molded me into the passionate blues man I am today. The harp is my life, the blues is my savior, and the fans are why I exist to play it!

I began my journey with the blues at the the age of 24. By this point I had been playing harp for 2 years, but I really didn't know what I was doing. I wasn't raised with the blues on my radio and I had no sense of what harp players were supposed to sound like. Through trial and error I spent the first two years learning how to bend notes, play scales, and imitate the guitar riffs of players like Jimmy Page and Duane Allman. It wasn't until I walked into one of the best blues joints in my home city of Philadelphia that I heard a master of the instrument play it right. Mikey Junior who runs the famous Twisted Tail Blues Jam on Sundays was on stage with the house band giving me a true lesson of what the blues is all about. I heard tunes by Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Junior Wells, and original stuff by Mikey himself. Later I had the privilege of witnessing more mastery of the instrument from one of the east coast's kings of harp Steve Guyger and I knew the blues was my calling in life. Steve was as close to those old masters as I had ever heard and he still wows me to this day. Those moments were the inspiration for my journey, which has led me to become one of the finest harp players in the Philly area. Along the way I met The Perkolator at a Little Red Rooster Band Show where they graciously let me sit in with them. From there it didn't take us long to realize we were gonna be ripping up on some blues together. Now I play with Tim "The Perkolator" Perks both in a duo and in a full band known as Slim and The Perkolators!

Since I began playing the blues live and became a professional, I've been lucky enough to share the stage with many local greats. I've been on stage with harp giants Mikey Junior (PA Blues Hall of Famer), Steve Guyger (Jimmy Rodgers harp player for 17 years and PA Blues Hall Of Famer), "Big Daddy" Albert Lamberson, Doctor Harmonica (Delaware Blues Hall of Famer), guitar greats Filthy Rich McPherson (New York Hall of Famer), Roger Girke (Former Foghat guitarist and Delaware Blues Hall of Famer), "Gypsy" Joe Alves, Joey Fulkerson, Georgie "The Blacksmith" Bonds (PA Blues Hall of Famer) Kevin McCann (Little Red Rooster Band and PA Blues Hall of Famer), bass virtuoso's like Jimmy Pritchard, Tony "TNT" Jones (Bass player for both Sister Sledge and Nina Simone throughout their careers and the only local one to tour with Buddy Guy and Big Mama Thornton), Bj Muntz (Lower Case Blues Band and Delaware Blues Hall of Famer), and drummers like Russ Joel (Delaware Hall of Famer), Howard Burton (toured with the Delphonics), Larry Hinkel, and Dave Marabella( former Robert Hazard drummer). One of my fondest moments was playing the Phoenixville Blues Festival with up and coming future guitar star Radka Kasparcova and her band Time Gap. I also had the honor of being invited to play with my old friend Logan Carpenter at the 1st annual Trenton Porkroll Festival.

Adam Bonomo: "...everything that is serene, smooth, and soulful"
-Quiet Lunch

"The end result is elegance for the ears to behold—something truly captivating"

"an instantly soothing yet rich sound"

Skip Denenberg, praised by artist Peter Himmelman as “an organic songwriter of the finest caliber” and by music critic, Chris Smith as “proof that there is hope for the American song", Skip is earning a loyal following everywhere he plays, one fan at a time. 

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Formed by NYC musician Adam Bonomo, indie acoustic outfit BONOMO is a project that pulls at the heart strings with symphonic resonance and a distinct take on indie-folk music. Influenced by the sounds of folk, jazz, gospel, and classical music, BONOMO is a melting pot of true artistry and the finest pioneering genres of all time. On a mission to unify musical traditions and audiences alike, the ensemble is set of visionaries inspired by the sounds of yesterday while simultaneously crafting a resonance all their own.

BONOMO is a winner of the John lennon songwriting competition and the CASC Songwriting Competition. Bonomo is the RECIPIENT of the audience choice award for their video “water” by director and photographer marian sell. They have also won spots in the Top 5 at the Indie International Songwriting Competition, the Top 3 at the New Song Music Competition, and Third Place in the Nashville Film Festival.


 It isn’t writing the theme song “Don’t Bet The Farm” that Skip Denenberg remembers most about Farm Aid. Nor is it playing the song for over 5000 people with Willie Nelson and the band backing him up, nor being described by Willie as one of his favorite new songwriters, nor even sharing the stage with his heroes Steve Earle, Neil Young, and Willie Nelson. The most memorable moment for Skip came after the show when the caterer approached him backstage to tell him how much Skip’s songwriting had touched him, and he just had to come back and tell him so. 

This is the magic of Skip and his music -- honest, powerful songs that brush against the elusive common nerve that every songwriter seeks to tap. Skip’s music has a distinct American feel that seems instantly familiar and comfortable. As a film and television composer, Skip has scored programs and promos ranging from Sesame Street to Olympic Highlight reels, and was a contributing writer for the 2012 Grammy winning Best Children’s Album, along with being nominated for 7 Mid-Atlantic Emmys.   

He has shared stages with such artists as Willie Nelson, Donovan, John Oates, Warren Zevon, Richie Havens, Steve Earle, Dar Williams, Al Kooper, Steve Forbert, Jerry Jeff Walker, Ron Sexsmith, the Saw Doctors, The Neville Brothers, and many others. 

He is the songwriter for the Philadelphia Phillies, and can be heard on WIP’s Sports Radio’s "Morning Show". His popular children’s songs are regularly featured on WXPN’s “Kid’s Corner”.

“I think for most songwriters, songs are like clothing. Malcolm's songs are his skin,” writes fellow Nashville tunesmith David Olney. “They are a direct expression of who is as a man.”

“People like to say Malcolm Holcombe is a national treasure, and they got that right,” adds R.B. Morris, an East Tennessee singer-songwriter, playwright and the former poet laureate of the City of Knoxville. “He stands on all the old American music traditions and takes them his own way into a very individual music expression.”

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Malcolm Holcombe grew up in western North Carolina, home to some of the planet's oldest mountains and some of America's deepest musical traditions. Radio and TV fueled Malcolm's musical passions as a kid, and music became even more important after he lost both his parents relatively young.

He toured with bands and landed in Nashville, where he took up an inconspicuous station at the back of the house - the very back - at Douglas Corner, one of the city's best singer/songwriter venues. Stories began to circulate about the mysterious dishwasher with the subterranean voice and oracle-like talent. Sadly so did stories of wildly inconsistent behavior - profound sweetness crossed by bouts of stunning abrasiveness.

He flirted with an official music career. But his stunning debut album made for Geffen Records was abruptly shelved, producing melodrama that only exacerbated Malcolm's drinking and depression. A business that once had a place for complicated genius turned its back on him, and he teetered near the edge.

Moving back to the North Carolina hills proved a powerful tonic. Holcombe let in help where before he'd pushed it away. With deep faith in God and a commitment to his art, Holcombe repaired himself and his career.

And that's a pretty good nod to the effect of hearing Holcombe sing. If you've not seen him in a live setting, this is what you have to do. His presence is spooky and timeless, as one imagines it was like to see Son House or Leadbelly. No emotional stone is left unturned.

While you plan for this important experience, collect Malcolm Holcombe albums... He is cryptic, demanding, polarizing, bold, passionate and free, a combination badly needed in our time of infinite trivia. He's even more interesting for having made a remarkable journey of recovery and discovery.

“There's something about the Durham County Poets that leaves you feeling that everything might be OK in the world after all. There's a human spirit that lives in these people and their music is the medium that allows that spirit to roam free.”

“The band is anchored by lead vocalist Kevin Harvey, who has to be one of Canada's most underrated blues singers”

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

The Durham County Poets are a lively and soulful group, who write and perform an eclectic blend of blues and folk, with tinges of gospel and swing tossed in for good measure. They are five seasoned musicians, all of whom are songwriters, who work together individually and collaboratively in composing their music. Delving into a variety of styles and genres, their musical influences include a broad range of artists. From The Band to James Taylor, Muddy Waters to Dire Straits...They have managed to put it all together to create their own musical style. The obvious joie de vivre expressed while performing together is reflected in the good-time feel that the band creates, which has been captivating their audiences consistently since their inception in 2011.

Fronted by Kevin Harvey, a self proclaimed blues crooner on lead vocals, The Durham County Poets also feature David Whyte on electric guitars and vocals, Neil Elsmore on guitars and vocals, Carl Rufh on double bass and vocals and Rob Couture (formerly of The Echo Hunters) on drums and percussion.

Durham County Poets sont originaires de la Vallée de la Châteauguay situé au Québec, Canada. Leurs influences sont variées, du blues au folk, du jazz au ragtime, entre autres. Chaque membre apporte un fond musical différent qui se marie au son folk soul du groupe. À ce jour, ils ont enregistré deux albums et ont joué un grand nombre de festivals, concerts et clubs de la côte Est des États-Unis et du Canada.

Robert Kimbrough Sr Blues Connection took home the 1st place band trophy in the International Blues Society’s 15th Annual Mississippi Delta Regional Blues Challenge in Indianola, Mississippi. Robert and the band will be bringing their world renowned delta blues style to Jamey's

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Robert Kimbrough Sr continues the Cotton Patch Soul Blues style created by his father, the legendary Junior Kimbrough. From an early age, Robert was steeped in the sounds and life of North Mississippi and its distinctive style of blues. Growing up, Robert listened, first-hand to Mississippi blues royalty that played with his father at home, at Junior’s Juke Joint Club, and the ever frequent weekend house party and porch jam session. The blues was simply part of everyday life as a Kimbrough. Robert continues his father’s musical tradition, along with some of his siblings. You can often find many of them sharing the stage on any given night in Mississippi. The Kimbrough name, along with the Burnside name, is part of a blues dynasty that remains strong today, bringing people from all over the world to see and hear them play.

The Cotton Patch Soul Blues style that Robert plays is a straight link to the music that his father originated in North Mississippi. It is a deep soul sound that can be linked back to his ancestors coming from the cotton fields, singing and ‘hollering‘ as they worked in the tall rows of Mississippi cotton. This distinct and somewhat underground style of blues is rooted in hypnotic, rhythms and dance-able grooves. The Black Keys released an entire album in 2006 of Junior Kimbrough cover songs called Chulahoma: The Songs of Junior Kimbrough. Up until the mid 80s, the only way to hear this music was to visit a church-turned-blues-den founded by Junior Kimbrough in Chulahoma, MS that unfortunately burned down in 2000.

 A singer, a songwriter, a musician, an activist, Arielle is a believer, a seer, an engineer, an innovator.  She’s a natural born talent with a proficiency for mind-bending musicianship, on par with the world’s finest.  With soul baring lyrics and melodies that burrow in your brain, she effortlessly emotes refrains with a four-octave range.  It resonates, it reverberates, it nourishes the great escape. Arielle will appear with her band on her US Suspension/Dimension Tour.

Concert - $15 online advance / $20 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Discovered in 2010 by guitarist Nuno Bettencourt, known for his work with Extreme and Rihanna, she signed with an indie record label.  In the years that followed, she made a name for herself touring throughout North America and the UK, opening and playing with Heart, Joan Jett, Graham Nash, Joe Bonamassa, Guns N Roses, members of Deep Purple, Eric Johnson, Gregg Allman and Cee Lo Green, which included a main stage slot at Coachella.

Good fortune ensued when Arielle was handpicked by guitarist Brian May for a key role in the London based musical, “We Will Rock You” a production based on the songs of his band Queen.  The notoriety and acclaim she received  from her performances for one of West End’s most-beloved, and longest running musicals, was a great accomplishment.  From the cover of Guitar Player Magazine, to being recognized by country superstar Vince Gill as one of the “Top 5 Best New Guitarists”, to being cast as a guitar player on the hit TV show Nashville, Arielle is quickly becoming a force on the scene.

Arielle is considered a music industry triple threat because she could enjoy an impressive career solely as a singer, songwriter or guitar player, but she has combined all three of those gifts to create a unique artistry that defies genres and borders.

She recently opened for Eric Johnson on his 3-month long tour earlier this year, as well as played and/or opened for Vince Gill, Gregg Allman, Heart, Joan Jett, Country Joe McDonald, Eric Johnson, Paul Gilbert, Andy Timmons, and many more. She has already made the cover of Guitar Player magazine and released the single “California,” which reached No. 3 on CMT Pure Charts.

She is the guitar player for Avery in the TV show Nashville, where she currently resides. Her voice gains comparison to Karen Carpenter and Eva Cassidy for the purity with a fouroctave range.

Arielle has an associate degree from the Musician’s Institute in L.A. and studied at London’s Institute of Contemporary Music Performance. Queen’s Brian May created a guitar role specifically for her in the West End musical We Will Rock You. She also played guitar on tour with Cee Lo Green.

Her most recent release, ‘My Gypsy Heart,’ her classic folk rock release debuted for 8 weeks on the Billboard Charts in 11 different categories.

Arielle is also a dolphin and whale activist, and is currently working on a unique guitar line, based off her custom prototype, Two-Tone, with Brian May (Queen). Whether it’s her guitar playing or singing, she never feels the need to show off. Indeed, she adheres to the philosophy that less can be more when it comes to expressing experiences through her songs. “The hardships and the insecurities are the reasons why I’m able to be vulnerable and real” she says.



"BY FAR the best live music venue on the East Coast"

"Jamey Reilly couldn't possibly have created a finer oasis for musicians to perform. It's really a gem. SERIOUSLY! Everybody try and get a date there!!! (Just leave some room for us because we're definitely going back!!!)"

"Last night we debuted at Jamey Reilly’s Jamey’a House of Music. Jamey has outdone himself. He has an incredible backline, and the sound, which he engineers is exquisite. Working with Jamey helps make performing seamless. He knows what he is doing and is an excellent communicator. He is also a musician, which helps a great deal (the man has ears). The food at this venue is incredible. The flavor-I can’t begin to find the words to express how excellent it is. If you have not been to Jamey’s House of Music, get down there, catch a show. Get there early and enjoy the amazing cuisine. It will blow your mind."

"This small room is by far the best sounding music venue I've ever experienced. It's a truly exceptional labor of love..."

"THE place to Jam!!! Jamey is the man, the myth, the legend. Great equipment & exceptional drum set."

"We've played every kind of venue imaginable on several world tours, and I have to tell you that this is probably the best venue we have ever played. It's simply brilliant. Thank you for everything done to perfection."

"I tell everyone about Jamey and Jamey's House of Music. Everyone in Nashville knows about this place. I play some of the best rooms in the world, like the Bluebird, Douglas Corner, Third and Lindsley, places with great sound systems, and nothing beats the sound in this room. ...This is my favorite place to play in the whole world."

"The sound is absolutely perfect. I could hear every note of every instrument. Just incredible."

"Best. Venue. Ever."

"... a dream performance space. Perfect acoustics, top quality production values, a visually lovely setting, and an overall aesthetic ambience that, like a tea ceremony, lifts every gesture to it's highest level. It's perfection, both for the audience and the performers."

"Totally going again soon! A++++++!!!"

"I can't even explain how delicious everything was."

"One word. ..incredible!"

"Awesome food..."
