What we're about

We are a group dedicated to a shared passion for live performance of Rhythm & Blues and related music. 
We currently run a monthly live music night (usually the 3rd Friday) at Soper Hall in Caterham. Moving forward we may look to establish presence at other venues in the Surrey/S. London area, where club members can meet, socialise and watch live music. 
The club has been running the live music nights at Soper Hall for a year now. We have established a reputation for running a super-friendly and inclusive club. Newcomers and solo visitors are extended a warm welcome (as indeed are our regulars). We have a good mix of audience members who like get up and dance and those who like to sit and listen. The hall is a great, atmospheric, intimate venue. There is a fully licensed bar. 
We operate on a not-for-profit basis, with the lion's share of any "door money" being used to pay performers. We are also committed to keeping our ticket price as affordable as possible. 
A broad use of the label "Rhythm & Blues" applies here. Lovers, aficionados, performers of anything from classic 50's R&B, through to blues, beat, soul, jazz and funk etc. are all welcome here - and we will try our best to cater to that breadth of tastes. 
We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who wants to help make regular live music at the club an ongoing concern. That includes bands and artists, potential venues, people who know of potential venues and volunteers to help run the club etc.

“Hell Yeah!….fabulous, very Albert King circa his Stax days and in my world, it doesn't get much better than that”, Blues Matters!
“One of the sweetest voices in Britain with six-string skills to match…” Chicago Blues Guide
“Alongside convincing vocals and fretwork, Mississippi MacDonald scores a bona fide blues hat-trick by way of his punchy, pungent and extremely genre-savvy lyrics. The London-based vocalist/guitarist exudes authority on all three fronts, backed here by solid, simpatico production. 5 stars.”, Duane Verh, Roots Music Report
