Obviously covid is something that is still omnipresent and whilst there are no regulatory requirements we would respectfully request that any of you attending a Howden Live show take a few common sense precautions? Please consider doing a lateral flow test before you come along and act accordingly on the result. Please hand sanitise on entry, we have a box full of sanitiser and we will dispense it with enthusiasm if that’s ok with you? If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask please do, let’s all look out for each other?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jam'd logo

DECEMBER 4th    £15

The Jam’d are now regarded as the UK’s best known and most popular tribute to the live performance and sound of The Jam, and are totally committed to giving an unforgettable, authentic performance with all the energy, passion and style of the Woking 3.

As full time touring professional musicians, and massive Jam fans, the band don’t “try to be” or “pretend to be” The Jam, but rather put on a performance from the heart and soul, drawing on all their memories, experiences and love of what was the country’s biggest band in their day.

Gigging up and down the UK at outdoor festivals, scooter rallies and some of the UK’s top music venues & events! The show also includes the only replica of Rick Bucklers ‘Great White’ drum kit & features their own brass section!……You won’t be disappointed!

Every effort is placed into reproducing the sound, arrangements and energy of a Jam gig. Those who saw The Jam live will remember the electricity, aggression, passion, and even fashion on stage, something not always prevalent in today’s world, but to The Jam’d, it is a passion, a mission, and an honour to play for fans of “the best band in the f#@*ing world!”

“You had to have seen The Jam live to truly experience what a Jam gig was, and I was lucky enough to have seen them on quite a few occasions. It wasn’t jumping around in every song on stage, it was a feeling, a movement, a total experience of style, cool, tension, excitement and electricity! We try and put those experiences into our performances to give our audiences some idea of what a Jam gig was. No one can ever emulate The Jam, but we hope we go some way to reminding fellow Jam fans of the best days of our youth!”
Dave Fletcher (The Jam’d)

BBC Radio 4 – The Jam’d can play any of the classic songs perfectly! They know what they’re doing!

Met lounge sound team (Peterborough) – Blown away by this band, had my attention from the sound check. Professional and talented on the next level! I’ve sound engineered touring bands for over 11 years and not many bands grab my attention the way these guys did!! Thanks guys for a wonderful night!!

IOW Scooter Rally – The best Jam tribute you’ll ever see!

Scribbling Sounds (Bilston) – singer and guitarist Dave Fletcher is more than a pair of sharp shoes and a polka dot shirt as he tears through the Bard of Woking’s finest moments.

Scribbling Sounds (Bilston) – That The Jam’d are up there with Bilston favourites The Modfathers and Bruce Foxton’s own From The Jam is testament to the musicianship of Fletcher, Malin and drummer John Cator.

This band were so busy in 2020 selling out venues all over the country that we couldn’t find a date for them, we have now though! 

Put on yer finest knitted gladrags, style your barnet, put on your dancing shoes and bring your finest singing voices, as we cordially invite you to witness the Greatest Show On Earth (in tank-tops). 

Hailing from Barnsley Rock City, The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican are on a mission! Determined to follow in their spiritual father’s immortal footsteps and keep his legacy alive, they have a talent for Bar-Stewardizing other famous people’s songs with new comedy lyrics, on acoustic geetar, ukulele, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, keyboards and kazoo. To complete their squeaky-clean image, estranged brothers Scott, Björn and Alan have become instantly recognisable for their immaculate hair and their stylish choice of sexy knitwear.

Since forming in 2006, the brothers Doonican have played over 1000 anarchic, side-splitting shows and have brought smiles and belly-laughs to audiences across the UK; from Barnsley to Barnstaple, from Glasgow to Glastonbury Festival. They continue to wow audiences with a fine selection of their greatest hits, including the likes of “Jump Ararnd”, “Tarnlife”, “The Lady In Greggs”, “Nandos”, “Fight For Your Pint”, “Bono Bloody Bono”, “Since You’ve Been Ron”, “She’s From Dodworth”, “Walking In Manp**s” and “If I Could Punch A Face… It’d Be Justin Bieber’s”.

The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican can’t wait to bring their shindig to Howden Live and they promise that they WILL rock you… but gently!

  1. Hi Ian we used to get significant amounts of money in grants from the Arts Council which significantly subsided jazz in particular. We decided some five years ago that we would become self funding, we have been successful in that but we are no longer in a position to present shows that make significant losses as jazz ones often did.
