Local blues man’s gig for charity

Local Blues Man comes out of retirement to gig for charity

epHead down to The Granby Arms, Uppermill, on Saturday 28th of March at 5.00pm for a real Blues treat! Local singer/songwriter JSL, and friends, will be playing in aid of the Charity NMO SPECTRUMUK. JSL, who plays guitar and Blues harmonica, last gigged at Middleton Park, ‘Bands on the Stand’ in July 2003. Having been diagnosed with the rare illness, NMO, he retired from mainstream music, but is now coming back with a vengeance to raise loads of dosh for people with the same condition.

There will be a great mix of covers and JSL’s original numbers. And legendary local DJ Clarence Bennett will be doing a set too. CD’s and other merchandise will be available to buy on the night. And if you’re feeling peckish, you’ll be able to get a plate of something tasty for a couple of quid.

See you there!

    All done and dusted now, but it was a very successful evening.

    There was a full pub, and £176 made in donations, plus another £50 from merchandising sales. Big thank you to Debee and Jamie of The Granby Arms for all their support and encouragement. Thanks to local journalists Aimee and Lucy for great press coverage. Thank you Alan Warriar, local chef, for his super pie. Thank you to DJ Clarence Bennett for promotion on air, and for his set on the evening. Thanks to my musical friends for attempting to make me sound good. Massive thank you to Gail McCallum for much more than I can list here.

    My first gig with a band since 2003… I rather enjoyed it!
