The Bluesinlondon Green Note jam goes from strength
Check out this recent artice in 'Backstage Pass':
"... Hosted by a blues/rhythm ‘n blues band called The Velours, this turned out to be pure heaven for Blues lovers. The band themselves were as good a blues band as I have heard in a long time and should be listened to whenever possible at their many London gigs... In addition, David Atkinson and Mark Harrison both did some excellent acoustic country blues and Joe X blue us away with his great vocals and mastery of his white Stratocaster. There was also a young guitar player who jammed with the band along with a saxophone player, and both these guys were awesome as well. A brilliant night, I strongly recommend that you check it out one of these Wednesdays" - Peter Coulson
