Thanks to everyone who has helped getting live music going at the original venue of the Ealing Club, the place where Alexis Korner and Cyril Davies originally started “British Rhythm and Blues” in March 1962.
The British Rhythm and Blues Boom of 1962, took inspiration directly from the Black American blues singers of America, used amplified guitars, pounding rhythms from the drums and new singing/performance styles that continue to permeate through the world of rock and pop music today.
In 2012, lets hope for more music across the borough and beyond!
