The December 16th show represents the 9th appearance by the Memphis Jam at the Aeolian Music Hall. It also represents the 10-year anniversary of the band, whose inaugural performance also occurred at the Aeolian.
Many people cite Memphis Tennessee as the birthplace of contemporary forms of music. Inspired by early Memphis artists, and later artists significantly influenced by the Memphis music scene, the Memphis Jam plays a range of memorable, upbeat rock n roll, funk, and blues classics.
The Memphis Jam, founded by Gary Lima (lead guitar and vocals) and Jeff Wright (vocals and guitar) is rounded out by Paul Fleury (bass and vocals), and Steve Malison (keyboards, sax, guitar and vocals). Sitting in on drums for the evening will be Miguel Thompson. Lima toured with and/or backed such artists as: Frankie Venom of “Teenage Head”; John Mellencamp; Billy Idol; and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Fleury played in popular local bands “Sugarfoot” and “Raising Kane” and Malison was a former member of the now infamous band “Player”. Thompson, a recent graduate of the Fanshawe College Music and Industry Arts Program, was the drummer for last year’s sold out “Share the Land” concert at the London Music Hall. Thompson currently backs a number of popular emerging Canadian artists including King Cruff, Jag Hulligan, and Sarina Haggarty.
Come out and be prepared to rock the night away! All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Fanshawe College United Way Campaign.
