Pyschedelic Jazz Rock and 'Soul Jazz'

The Next Gig will be in September between Simple Red tour dates.

Ram Jam or The Bulls Head, watch this space.

 

The Jammers are a mesmerising mix of Deep Funk - Heavy Blues - Spacey Rock - Power Jazz. These powerful expressive genres are fused together in our own unique style.

The Jammers were formed three years ago when Dave Clayton and Kenji ‘Jammer’ Suzuki had time off from their extensive touring schedule with Mick Hucknall’s Simply Red.

Musical empathy, intuition and sheer joy of music-making is ‘The Jammers’ and as the name suggests, 'Jamming' is the essence of the band. We have been loosely likened to the early electric Miles Davis era, Silent Way and Bitches Brew.

The line up is: David Clayton - the funkiest of keyboards players, Kenji Jammer - a maestro on guitar whose sound world is inspiring, Theo Buckingham - one of the UK’s finest drummers, Mark Buckingham - saxophones and on bass rock solid Tom Higgins.

The Jammers is a coming together of pure musical pleasure and passion, who are creating a loyal and devoted following of music lovers delighting in our musical efforts. 

The musical experience of the band members is too long to mention, but needless to say, it is hugely expansive, global, creative and vibrant.

The Jammers represent a powerful musical journey.
