Did anybody go to the Alma jam session this Sunday?

I had to miss it 'cos of work.

What a great session it is. You can meet Lord Snooty, Joe Bazouke & The Hippy while listening or joining in with some real first class jamming/improvisation.

Not a bad band. Joe plays bass mainly, but does some of his bazouki stuff as well. Also featured is Graham Hood who plays guitar and dulcimer. Lead singer - I think is Bob... (sorry if wrong name) he has a fantastic voice. They also have a classical female violinist who is fantastic! They play original material sort of "incredible stringband meets the Brides Of Funkenstein" definitely worth booking.

It certainly is a good session pub, but i was amazed at the number of amplifiers that were spread around the floor. It has been nearly 40 years since i last visited the Alma,then it was a bikers rock and roll pub.

The Alma is a great little jam. Just what you need after a good Sunday lunch - good beer, good company, and an eclectic mix of music. There's also a great blues harp player gets in there most weeks!

Where is this Alma Plumstead? I kept thinking it was a ship, until I studied the thread a little more thoroughly. I take it that it's in London, or shall we say "Greater London"?
I added (London jam session) to the thread in my feeble attempt to make it clear. According to Woodsie's link, it's this session (click) you're talking about, right?
OK, so it's on King's Highway, London. The session is on Sundays, 6-10:30 PM. Wish I could be there.

Intresting comments by Joe. The bar we do our jam in is called The Crimea bar.

The Jam was cancelled (in advance) a couple of weeks ago because apparently it was the anniversary of some famous navy bloke or something and the navy people have a special do there every year!

Can anybody shed light on The Alma (ship) and the Plumstead connection?

The pub at Plumstead, London SE18, is named after the battle of Alma which was fought in 1854 during the Crimean war.

That's interesting dave. I was in there last night, unfortunately it was the worst time iv'e been there. It turned out to be a very stressful evening. The sound engineer was definitely three sheets to the wind and took an hour to set up a mike!!!!! We left after the 1 good song of the night Rosalee.

The last time I went, I didn't bother with the sound system. Even at the Tudor Barn where the system is fine, I usually prefer to sing without it. Perhaps I'll offer to set up a PA sometime at "The Alma" - if they really need it.
