FIRST SUNDAYS BLUES BRUNCH
and Blues Jam Open Mic
• Philly Blues Society Meet-up
• featuring the Philly Blues Kings

FREE ADMISSION! 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Blues lovers and blues players have made the new Jamey's their home away from home for over a year now, and know that this is the best place to come for some really good and inexpensive eats, fresh ground coffee and espresso, great music, and friendly people. The vibe is home-like and cool, and the sound is out of this world. Jamey's provides a full professional grade backline, so players only need to bring their instrument to jump up on stage and jam.

The open mic jam runs from noon to 2:00 pm, and the smoking hot Philly Blues Kings lays down a set from 2:00 to 3 pm.

The Philly Blues Society hosts the monthly meet-up where members new and old can come to play, eat, chat and enjoy a day soaked in the blues. Many guests also like to host gatherings or parties during the brunch, as there are tables and chairs for dining, and comfortable seats to listen to the music - and it does not cost them a thing to meet up there! Plus, it is wheelchair accessible, is BYOB, and has plenty of free local parking. Being right in the center of downtown Lansdowne, next to the train station, there is abundant public transportation as well.

Check out the mouth watering brunch menu on our menu page.

No reservations are needed. Just load up some friends and head on down!

SLOAN WAINWRIGHT
with SHARON GOLDMAN

Sloan Wainwright – youngest sister to folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright III and auntie to Rufus and Martha Wainwright, is one of contemporary folk music's best loved talents


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


Defying standard categorization, singer/songwriter Sloan Wainwright, consistently demonstrates her easy command of a variety of American musical styles — pop, folk, jazz and blues — held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto, with the end result being a unique and soulful hybrid. 

Her family tree (brother and folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche) reads like a who’s who of contemporary folk music. Sloan’s incredible gift is not only her unique songwriting ability but also her dramatically voiced rendition of original songs. 

“She’s folk influenced, but the real star here is her voice. Warm and smoky and smooth, it makes her earthy, ominous lyrics seem all the more intense.” 

With a solid and impressive discography of 10 original CD releases to her credit, Sloan continues to write, sing and perform live and has won two songwriting awards at the annual EmPower Posi Music Awards.  In addition, Sloan has written numerous musical compositions for theater and dance and teaches at many of the best-known master songwriter series and workshops.

Sloan’s open spirit and first-hand experience is welcome –year after year– in the musical classrooms of such prestigious song camps as Richard Thompson’s Frets and Refrains, The Swannanoa Gathering, SummerSongs, WUMB Radio’s Summer Acoustic Music Week (SAMW), Winter Acoustic Music Weekend (WAMW), Moab Folk Camp, Cape Cod Songwriting Retreat and emPower Music & Arts Totally Cool Song School.

SHARON GOLDMAN is a New York-raised, New Jersey-based singer-songwriter whose "intense, insightful, vivid" storytelling is a "clinic in how to paint an indelible picture with the simplest images and symbols" (Alan Young, New York Music Daily)

Over several well-received albums (including 2016's KOL ISHA/A Woman's Voice, which was named one of the Top 10 Folk Albums of 2016 by WFDU's Ron Olesko) she has combined heartfelt portraits and memorable lyrics with unforgettable melodies and pure, precise, expressive vocals — taking a folk/pop sensibility to new artistic heights. She performs regularly at house concerts, folk coffeehouses, festivals, arts and cultural venues and community centers.

Sharon was honored with a showcase spot at the 2017 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance conference; a finalist spot at the 2017 South Florida Folk Festival songwriting competition and three Honorable Mentions at the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest. She previously wrote the popular blog Songwriting Scene; hosts music regularly in her NJ hometown (most recently, she curated the popular Schoolhouse Songwriter Series in Metuchen, NJ); and is is also a proud longtime member of the Jack Hardy Songwriters Exchange and the SummerSongs community.

MARIEME

“What I want to do is remind people of the most important, basic human qualities – basically, to write a manual in songs helping us learn to love ourselves.” - Marieme

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


Marieme is an amazing singer-songwriter with a great band and a powerful voice. In addition to her immense musical talent, she is a true fashion influencer, admired by the Kardashians, designing and making her own outfits for videos, performances, and daily wear. Her music has been featured in Apple TV Commercials, The Soundtrack for Amy Schumer’s ‘I Feel Pretty’, and countless Television shows including most recently on CBS TV’s ‘The Red Line.’

In popular music, the rise of the anti-diva has proven the defining meme of the last decade. Artists ranging from Adele and Amy Winehouse to Solange and Janelle Monae have recreated the diva paradigm in their own distinct images – using their unique voices and personas to share the particular complexities of their existence. Now there’s another contender in this illustrious group: the dynamic, innovative, buzzed-about singer-songwriter known as Marieme – a presence at once as glamorous as she is brutally honest in her music.

Like those who paved the way before her, Marieme (the artist moniker of Marieme Diop) was influenced by the iconoclastic greats who created their own lanes: Erykah Badu, Dusty Springfield, Aretha, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Lauryn Hill, Sarah Vaughn. What sets Marieme apart, however, is both her combination of a bold, expressive multi-octave voice and her individual perspective as a socially-conscious world citizen.

Six months after Marieme was born in the African nation of Mauritania, her life changed forever. When war broke out between Mauritania and her parents’ native Senegal, Marieme and her family were forced to escape. “We literally got on the last plane before the war went crazy,” Marieme explains from her current home base in Santa Monica, California. Her father, a top executive at a major electrical company in the region, was stripped of his livelihood. Before the war, the Diop family had a large home with staff and two cars; after, they were left with nothing. Marieme and her siblings went to live with their aunt in Senegal while her father and mother moved to the United States, settling in New York City’s Bronx neighborhood. It would be five years before they would be able to bring the rest of the family together again.

Marieme's unique upbringing shaped her into a brutally honest and dynamic artist with a captivating and socially-conscious voice. Her music explores themes of self-reliance, change and evolution.

JULIAN HARTWELL PROJECT

Julian has performed professionally at venues in and around the Delaware Valley and Northeast USA for the last 15+ years including: Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Lincoln Center (NYC), The Painted Bride, Chris’ Jazz Cafe, Time restaurant & bar, South Jazz Parlor, World Cafe Live, The Performance Garage, Temple Performing Arts Center, and many others. . .


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


Julian Hartwell is a sought-after pianist, composer, bandleader, and educator based in Philadelphia, PA. Originally hailing from Birmingham, AL, his family made the move north to Philly when Julian was a ripe twelve years old, helping contribute to the musical evolution of the budding young pianist by exposing him to the rich musical legacy of performers and educators that the city has to offer. It was here that the language of jazz truly took hold and led him on the path to where he is today.

And it is just that – as over the past 15 years he has performed throughout a wide swath of the Delaware Valley and Philly area – from jazz clubs to rock venues, music ministry to high-class cocktail hours, weddings, jam sessions, and everything in between. Attending University of the Arts for jazz performance and later finishing his degree at Temple University, he now finds himself as an adjunct professor teaching piano and theory classes at his alma mater. Career highlights so far include sharing the stage with major names like Christian McBride, Jimmy Heath, and Jon Faddis at Lincoln Center with the Temple University Jazz Band, in addition to appearing with the latter two musicians on that band’s release from Spring 2015 entitled “Dear Dizzy: A Tribute to Dizzy Gillespie.”

Since 2013 Julian has been leading his own group The Julian Hartwell Project, providing an ever-evolving platform for his growing repertoire of 30+ original compositions and arrangements to date and finding his voice not only as a pianist but a composer as well. These talents are on full display on that group’s self-titled debut effort, garnering favorable reviews (see Press) from All About Jazz and others upon its release in late 2015. He continues to hone his talents as a sideman and a leader with The JHP and other groups around town, as well as continuing to explore a more nuanced and exploratory approach with a growing repertoire of neo-classical compositions for solo piano. 2018 currently finds Julian writing and arranging the music for a next collaborative recording project featuring guest vocalists and MCs, and in general just living, breathing, and making music the majority of his waking hours.

JP SOARS AND THE RED HOTS

"He plays a head-spinning variety of styles. What sets him apart from most is that he plays them all well, while still managing to make the music his own. Full Moon Night in Memphis is blues of many flavors and subtleties. The music is well played by artists that are inspired and engaged, never failing to excite the listener. Treat your ears to this winning blues today."
-Barry Kerzner


Concert - $30 online advance / $35 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


"KING OF THE CIGAR BOX GUITAR!"

"JP Soars is not a typical blues guitarist. He has a diverse musical background that encompasses a multitude of influences. "

Since starting his recording career as a blues artist with the critically-acclaimed 2008 CD Back of My Mind, guitarist and vocalist JP Soars has channeled uncommon influences into a signature sound. Anyone could simply list revered blues artists like Muddy Waters and Guitar Slim, jazz guitar giants like Django Reinhardt and Wes Montgomery, and uncompromising rock acts like Black Sabbath and Slayer, but Soars has lived the diversity-cutting his teeth touring and recording with South Florida metal bands, and learning the complex style of Reinhardt to continue to perform in "Gypsy Jazz" solo and duo settings. All of these artists, and more, color and shade Soars' blues vocals and playing, whether on his hollow bodied Epiphone six-string or home-made, two-string cigar box slide guitar.

In 2009, Soars' unique approach paid off as he and his trio The Red Hots defeated bands from around the world to win the annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. Soars also won the Albert King Award for most promising guitarist. The group then channeled the excitement of that victory into its sophomore CD, the 2011 release More Bees With Honey. Like Back of My Mind, it received substantial airplay on XM Radio, even earning accolades from Little Steven on his "Underground Garage" program.

The CD also garnered Soars a Blues Music Award nomination for "Best Contemporary Male Blues Artist of the Year," and was named both "Best Blues CD" and "Album of the Year" by the Palm Beach Post. In 2011, Soars teamed up with Tampa singer/guitarist Damon Fowler and Memphis singer/keyboardist Victor Wainwright in the all-star blues act Southern Hospitality. Now Blind Pig recording artists, the group released a 2013 CD (Easy Livin') that earned a Blues Blast Music Award for "Best New Artist Debut Release." The collective tours in-between the schedules of its three bandleaders' solo careers.

Soars also released a 2013 live CD with The Red Hots to document their first European tour (Live From the Netherlands) after recording as a special guest with former Nighthawks guitarist and current blues star Jimmy Thackery on his 2012 release As Live As It Gets. "When I first heard JP Soars," Thackery says, "I knew he was separate from the rest of the pack."

A third studio CD, Full Moon Night in Memphis, is due out by Soars and the Red Hots in the spring of 2014, and promises to best illustrate the singing guitarist's broad range of styles and tastes. The bandleader has also democratically added a second guitarist, Steve Laudicina, for the group's live shows. Factor in a promising new bassist, Pat Ward, and longtime rock-solid drummer Chris Peet (who also works with Southern Hospitality), and the future is indeed looking red hot for Soars.

JIM PATTON AND SHERRY BROKUS

"Folk-rock with an emphasis on the rock... works in the same tradition as Dylan, Van Morrison, and Lou Reed"


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


“Patton has improbably deepened and broadened his art. For his new album with his wife and longtime musical partner Sherry Brokus, The Great Unknown, Patton has crafted 10 new songs that do more than explain himself to his listeners; these songs explain those listeners to themselves.” Geoffrey Himes, Washington Post music writer.

“Patton & Brokus’ new all-acoustic CD puts the spotlight on Jim Patton's lovingly crafted tales of working class heroes and losers, life's simple pleasures and the longing for something more. We know the characters in these songs, and we're pulling for them." – Jeff Talmadge

Berkalin Records is proud to announce the May 2018 European release of The Hard Part of Flying, a new album from the Austin folk/Americana duo Jim Patton & Sherry Brokus. Building on the momentum of their last album, The Great Unknown, named one of 2013’s top 100 CDs by Geoffrey Himes in Paste Magazine, the duo has teamed up with producer Ron Flynt for the fourth straight time to deliver their strongest writing and singing yet. Once the album is released, Patton & Brokus will support it with live shows in Europe.

Patton’s new songs not only provide a back and forth with Brokus on vocals, with Brokus taking a larger role than usual, but the songs create a back and forth between Austin, their home for over twenty years, and their Maryland home before that. John Conquest said in Third Coast Music: “the Baltimore rootedness gives their latest real strength.”

Producer Flynt has crafted ingenious acoustic/electric arrangements that keep Patton’s acoustic guitar, Brokus’s hand percussion and the duo’s voices out front, while subtly reinforcing them with bass and keyboards. The result is a sound that closely resembles the duo’s live shows, where the lanky, silver-haired Patton sits next to the petite, dark-haired Brokus and showcase the lyrics that are the key to the act’s appeal. Even at house concerts and folk clubs, however, the duo often brings along an extra musician to embellish the songs, and that's the feel of the record as well. Providing that enhancement on The Hard Part of Flying are bassist/keyboardist Ron Flynt, acoustic guitarist/ multi-instrumentalist Rich Brotherton, fiddler Warren Hood, and acoustic guitarist/mandolinist Marvin Dykhuis, with guest appearances from lead guitarist Mary Cutrufello, cellist Julie Carter, guitarist Scrappy Jud Newcomb, and percussionist John Bush.

SCOTT BRAVO

"Scott Bravo is simply the best writer and guitar player I have had the pleasure to hear. Mr. Bravo's CD takes us on a musical journey from cab rides to pure sloth. Pure enjoyment indeed."
- Bill Carpenter/Creative Director/Milford-TV.com

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


Scott Bravo is an acoustic, instrumental, virtuoso guitarist from NY.

Scott was born and raised in Syracuse NY and started his musical journey as a hard core and metal guitarist. Finding little fulfillment in the upstate music scene he moved to Minneapolis in 2000. He briefly performed in the seminal mid west metal band Collapse before discovering Tommy Emmanuel in 2003. After hearing Tommy’s album “Only” Scott sold all of his electric gear and dedicated himself solely to the acoustic instrumental genre. In 2004 he recorded his first full album and went on tour across the country. Scott played anywhere and everywhere that would book him. By 2007 he had signed a record deal with Ohio record label RockShot Records and released his jazziest album to date. ”Bemusement Park”. More touring followed. In 2009 Scott moved back to Syracuse and released “NY Smile” his 4th album. He spent the vast majority of 2009-2013 on the road up and down the east coast steadily building a following. In 2013 he moved to NYC where he still resides. In 2015 he released 5th and 6th album a collection of older songs called "V" and “Yes…But With Shades of Grey” respectively. Since 2015 he has consistently been on the road and performing locally up to 250 shows a year. On June 7th 2018 he is set to release the first of 3 EPs titled Acoustisexual.

Style: While technically existing in the “fingerstyle” genre Scott is not a strict finger picker. He plays a hybrid style, now known in the genre as “sloth” style. He holds the pick and uses only his thumb. As a matter of fact he is one of only a handful of players genre wide that use a pick at all. His influences are clear and present and they include Zakk Wylde, Steve Vai, Al DiMeola, John 5, Adrian Legg, Tommy Emmanuel and Slash. His music ranges from soft and mellow to bluesy, jazz infused shred licks (often over a looped backing track) that leave the audience thoroughly entertained and impressed.

Endorsers: Scott endorses and is endorsed by the following companies: Furch Guitars, John Pearse Strings, Sunburst Gear (amplification) K&K Pickups, AXVA Clothing, and Journey Instruments
