Gary Husband livestream from Ealing

9th December @ 4.00 pm GMT/UTC

The Ealing Club CIC loves to champion the West London initiatives of others to help foster an environment of musical mutual awareness. 

It gives us enormous pleasure to announce a very special, live streamed performance of Jazz Pianist, Gary Husband whose session work has included stints with the likes of Jack Bruce, John McLaughlin and Andy Summers. All three of those musicians began their careers during the hazy days of the West London Rhythm and Blues boom that was highlighted by Jack Bruce in the movie “The story of the Ealing Club – Suburban Steps To Rockland” (Available on DVD & Sky Arts in UK/Ireland)

Gary Husband will be performing a special Jazz piano set, live from St Mary’s Church Perivale, a location managed by a charity that is successfully developing a global audience for classical music while supporting musicians and funding the upkeep of a key historical building, St Mary’s Church Perivale. 

The streets surrounding St Mary’s Perivale are also the birthplace of keyboard players Rick Wakeman and the legendary Pianist, Nicky Hopkins (session player for the Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks & The Beatles + many more). In recent years, a commemorative bench and plaque have also started to accentuate Perivale’s musical connections. (More details here)


Viewers can access the stream via youtube or vimeo for FREE on 9th December. From 15:52 pm (8 minutes before the concert) an access panel will be visible to indicate the upcoming performance at 16.00 pm.

Simply, head to youtube below on 9th December for access.

Voxjam 2020 – The festival in support of Oxfam

Oxjam is the annual live music festival brought together by volunteers for Oxfam in support of its efforts to combat world poverty. 

In 2020, the festival has had to innovate and create a virtual festival made up of recorded and live performances for the 28th November 2020. 

“Ealing Club Eclectic” stalwart, “TJ Johnson” will be making an appearance as part of proceedings in a specially recorded session held under semi-lockdown conditions in October.

He appears alongside a myriad of bands from across the UK that include a live performance from special guests such as Andy Bell (Ride, Oasis, Beady Eye, GLOK). 

Those of our followers with a jazzier taste may be interested in checking out the exceptional talents of Andrea Lisa and Rouhangeze + Tomasz Bura who also have West London connections.

Shaun Keaveny (BBC Radio 6 Music) will be showcasing a musical extravaganza that goes up and down the country and beyond to help raise money for the Oxfam Christmas fundraising appeal ‘Together Against Hunger’. The programme is set up to help families hit hardest by the pandemic who are facing crisis levels of hunger in 2020.

The £5.00 ticket fee is a tiny contribution to such a great cause that also happens to be pushing forward some amazing new musical talent. There is absolutely no doubt that some of those featured will end up on a larger stage…….. in front of live audience…in a venue….sometime, fairly soon…hopefully 2021.

THE EALING FILM FESTIVAL calls out to filmmakers worldwide!

A new film festival makes its debut in November 2020 and is set to provide a new platform in West London for filmmakers of all genres, abilities and backgrounds. 

THE EALING FILM FESTIVAL will reach out to new film projects from all over the world as well as those drawn from the Borough of Ealing, a London neighbourhood that is well noted for film-making connections: Ealing Studios, legendary film locations, prestigious film schools such as Met Film and The University of West London, Dr Who, Downton Abbey, the Ealing Comedies are some of them.

Oscar winning Film Director, Steve McQueen who grew up in Ealing Borough would no doubt be delighted to see new film festivals emerging on his home turf.

West London’s film-making ecosystem warrants a thriving film festival circuit and the Ealing Film Festival can certainly boost that prospect. The core committee of Alan Granley, Annemarie Flanagan and Peter Gould have a passionate understanding of the area and their love of film will provide firm foundations for a thriving event.

Enthusiastic support for this years ‘online’ event has already been forthcoming from MPs,  businesses and we understand the film selection committee will comprise of experts and figures including Jane Winehouse (Co-founder & Managing Trustee of the Amy Winehouse Foundation)

Thanks to followers of the Ealing Club website, the film “The Ealing Club Story – Suburban Steps To Rockland” is now screening on Sky Arts & KLM Airlines and we hope local MP’s and businesses will continue to spread awareness of Ealing’s Music story as it continues to move further afield.
