FROM THE JAM gained an immediate reputation for the kind of incendiary ‘live’ performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago.
The band now includes Bruce Foxton, Russell Hastings and special guest, drummer and founder member of Big Country Mark Brzezicki in place of Rick Buckler.
The Jam had amazing chart success with 8 singles and 7 albums to make the top 40 in the United Kingdom from their debut in 1977 to their break-up in 1982. Their last 5 albums were all top ten hits and their last 8 singles made it into the top 10.
Getting you in the concert mood is support from Eddie & The Hot Rods, who began life in 1976, when four teenagers from Southend on Sea got together and played their own style of fast energetic rock and roll / r’n’b. They were soon a big hit on the London pub rock scene and signed by legendary Island Records.
They went on to have three hit albums and four top forty UK singles including the Top Ten hit Do Anything You Wanna Do. There have been TV appearances worldwide and have filled almost every major venue in the UK. A success in the USA too, they have toured alongside The Ramones, Tom Petty, The Police, Squeeze and Talking Heads.
