Spanning from the middle of the 60's to 2018, we have some pop-rock, some jazz, some jazz-blues, some jazz-rock, some progressive - all with one common denominator....the drummer Jon Hiseman. So from his early session work with Arthur Brown; albums with Jack Bruce in the late 60's; through his spells with John Mayall, Colosseum (I and II), Tempest, United Jazz + Rock Ensemble and to his final band JCM, just before his death in 2018. Come and join us for a celebration of an awesome drummer.
Because of an added complication with an ongoing medical condition, we were forced to abandon our live New Year's Eve bash; however not wanting to let the event pass unacknowledged, we are going to repeat the 5 hour War of the Worlds special, along with 7 hours of awesome tunes with themes about the end of time/world and the renewal of things to come.
