The CROOKED EYE BREWERY is now at Jamey's House of Music, offering fresh, cold ales on tap!

Try all twelve thirst quenching brews with your dinner, and enjoy the show in high style!

This year will introduce hard ciders and Pennsylvania wines and spirits for your drinking pleasure, at our beautiful new bar!

As of June 26, Delaware County restaurants have been given the green light to reopen by the Governor of Pennsylvania. We plan to cautiously reopen our doors with a single concert in July, as well as our weekly blues and jazz sessions. We will take every stipulated precaution per the official guidelines, and see how it goes for awhile before we start up in earnest - hopefully in August. We also have QR code menu links available at each table so you can just use your cell phone, and will be phasing in contactless payments as it comes available so you can use Apple, Google or Samsung payments via your phone, or by using NFC enabled chip credit cards. We have plexiglass shields at the big tables as well. We look forward to seeing you back, and will do our best for your health and enjoyment. Stay tuned in for updates!

TOBY WALKER

"Flat out... you have to hear this great musician... I'm blown away"
- Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna and the Jefferson Airplane

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Kitchen - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


Internationally and nationally acclaimed Toby Walker has been hailed as an award winning, roots music fingerstyle guitar virtuoso and songwriter who has toured the US, the United Kingdom, and Europe. Blending the styles of blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, old-time jazz and rock, Walker has his own style and as such received numerous awards, including being the 1st place recipient of the International Blues Challenge Award in Memphis and the NY Music Award for best instrumental CD. Walker has also been inducted into the NY Blues Hall Of Fame.

Walker is a nationally recognized guitar instructor, having taught at Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch, Woody Mann's Guitar Seminars, The Swanannoa Gathering, and the National Guitar Workshop. Walker also has eight instructional DVD's on Happy Traum's Homespun Music Instruction, and has produced hundreds of instructional videos on his own.

Toby’s passion for blues, rags, folk, and other traditional American music drove him to leave an apartment crammed full of recordings, books and instruments for the Mississippi Delta, Virginia and the Carolinas where he tracked down some of the more obscure - but immensely talented - music makers of an earlier era. He learned directly from Eugene Powell, James "Son" Thomas,Etta Baker, and R.L Burnside, among others.

STARTING UP JULY 12

SUNDAY BLUES BRUNCH & JAM

• Philly Blues Society Meet-up
• featuring the Philly Blues Kings

FREE ADMISSION! 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Blues lovers and players have made Jamey's their home away from home, and know that this is the best place to come for some really good and inexpensive eats, ales on tap from Crooked Eye Brewery, fresh ground coffee and espresso, great music, and friendly people. The vibe is home-like and cool, and the sound is out of this world. Jamey's provides a full professional grade backline, so players only need to bring their instrument to jump up on stage and jam.

The open mic jam runs from noon to 2:00 pm, and the smoking hot Philly Blues Kings lays down a set from 2:00 to 3 pm.

The Philly Blues Society hosts the weekly meet-up where members new and old can come to play, eat, drink, chat and enjoy a day soaked in the blues. Many guests also like to host gatherings or parties during the brunch, as there are tables and chairs for dining, and comfortable seats to listen to the music - and it does not cost them a thing to meet up there! Plus, it is wheelchair accessible, and has plenty of free local parking. Being right in the center of downtown Lansdowne, next to the train station, there is abundant public transportation as well.

Check out the mouth watering brunch menu on our menu page.

No reservations are needed. Just load up some friends and head on down!
