We had a great time last night - ventured out of Southwick - two miles away in the village of Boarhunt is the venue of the Boarhunt Blues Club.  A tiny village hall - home for the past ten years or so of the Blues Club.  Last night the band was OO-BOP-SH'BAM, who played an amazing selection of 1940s Lindy-Hop, blues, 1950s Rock 'n Roll.  I couldn't keep my eyes off the two incredible saxophonists - how does anyone play like that?  Also in the band were lead guitarist, keyboard player, double bass, drummer - whose wild playing split a drum-skin half way through the first set, and of course, the lead singer. Brilliant!
If you're interested in brilliant blues music of all types, the club meets once a month on the third Friday - you don't have to be a member, just check out their website at
