Bar Zambra Jam Night

Blues and Greens.....

Miki and I have been going a little ‘cold turkey’ on our return home, missing the nightly buzz of live music that we had become so accustomed to in the States, so you can imagine our delight when we saw a flyer advertising my friend Mario’s bar beginning a regular programme of music in the coming months.  I’ve joined Mario’s band Los Mezcaleros a few times on shows in the region, and it’s always fun.  Saturday was advertised as a jam night so we headed down, me with my bass and Miki with a determination to eat one of the newly-promoted kebabs…

Mario and I looking suitably engrossed.....

It turned out to be a great night, and oddly reminiscent of our time in America, jamming along with half a dozen guest musicians, we ran through songs evocative of our trip: Pride & Joy, Cold shot (Stevie Ray Vaughn) Crossroads (Robert Johnson) Fulsome Prison Blues (Johnny Cash) and T-Bone Walker’s Stormy Monday. I was also invited to take part in an Acoustic jam held every second Thursday down the road in El Pinar, so that might be fun. Not sure if they do kebabs, though….

"Let's all agree on the next chord...."

It’s great to know we have these possibilities just down the road in our ‘local’ – and you can be sure it won’t be the last time we’ll be down there!

  2. Yes, it was fantastic to have this opportunity of live music in our lovely Turre!
    And it was for me the first time that I saw Mario and Kevin gigging together, they seem to connect very well, musically and otherwise too, simply great!
    I enjoyed too the harmonica player at the gig, reminded me so much of our time in teh States, although it was a very different way of playing it. Kevin said it was “an English way”…
