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, 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 monthly meet-up where members new and old can come to play, eat, chat and enjoy a day soaked in the blues.

Being right in the center of downtown Lansdowne, next to the train station, there is abundant public transportation as well.

"Andrea’s voice is sultry, sweet, and playful, infusing the music with elements of earthy blues, retro jazz, and romantic swing. Her guitar is classical, adding elegance and intimacy. And her large repertoire is a mix of standards and originals, in the vein of the Great American Songbook and Parisian Chanson; audiences and critics rave about her performances around the USA and in Europe"

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

Singer, guitarist, and composer, Andrea Carlson burst onto the Delaware Valley music scene in 2009, winning the Philadelphia Songwriters Award for her song, "Cryin'". She followed with a completely original CD, “Drivin’ Myself Wild For You”, featuring another prize winner, "Mysterious Moon", and then her current CD, "Love Can Be So Nice" (with another honor for “Let Me Cook For You”), showcasing standards and originals in English and French. For the past seven summers, Andrea has gone on the road in Europe, playing a dozen countries and headlining at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Stan Slotter is one of the most sought-after session musicians in the Delaware Valley, a trumpet player and flutist doubling on flugelhorn and alto flute, playing jazz (swing, straight ahead, Big Band, Latin, fusion, Avant Garde and Funk), Salsa, Klezmer and Middle eastern music. Stan’s musicality and versatility has made him a perfect complement to Andrea, in concert and in the studio (“Love Can Be So Nice” and her upcoming CD).

David Bopdrummer has been Andrea’s regular percussionist for six years, at home and abroad. He grew up playing in marching and symphonic bands, dance bands, (even garage bands), and adds elements of swing and bebop groove to Andrea’s unique compositions.

Born in Tennessee, Andrea has lived in California, Texas, Illinois, and Pennsylvania. She began singing jazz professionally in small groups and with a big band, while in high school. Performances then included opening for the great James Brown! She earned her degree in Classical Guitar at the Columbia Conservatory, before she left Chicago – first for Memphis and then the east coast. Today, often heard with her Love Police, she is one of the busiest singers in the greater Philadelphia and mid-Atlantic region. Andrea’s third CD is currently in production at MorningStar Studios, where Grammy Award-winning engineer Glenn Barratt has overseen her previous albums as well. Appearing at Jamey’s with players from those sessions, she will perform her favorite songs, both new and previously released.

Philly's best loved and longest running blues band is back!

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

In 1985, five young, local musicians got together and began playing old blues songs in a rambling three-story house in Philadelphia. They decided to take the act on the road as The Dukes of Destiny, a name they got from a matchbook cover urging the reader to “Be the Captain of Your Own Destiny.” At first, The Dukes of Destiny played house parties in Germantown, generating interest by word of mouth. A gig at the now-defunct Taker’s Café in Germantown launched their public career, and 30 years later, they are still playing some of the hottest, most danceable blues and old school soul in the Philadelphia area. Today The Dukes of Destiny reign as Philadelphia’s longest-lived and best loved blues act. Featuring John Colgan-Davis, Arlyn Wolters, Rich Curtis, Bob Holden, "Chicago" Carl Snyder and Ian Lander.

Three longtime friends and fixtures in the east-coast music world will team up for a rare performance - and a night that promises to be one for the history books!

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

David Mowry is the father of the father and son Roots Americana duo, sometimes quartet and sometimes quintet, Beaucoup Blue. It is no exaggeration to call David one of the hidden gems of American roots music, with musical beginnings in Woodstock playing alongside many of the biggest names in the industry. His terse playing and supple slide work on guitar are unmistakeable, and his gravelly voice is tinged with grunts and velvet overtones. David may be one of the finest musicians in the USA who has managed to fly under the radar for his entire career - largely due to his humility and desire to eschew the limelight and vacuous siren song of the music biz.

He teams up with long time associates and stellar musicians Dale Melton of the Melton Brothers and keyboardist for Lili Anel, plus Bill Zinno, one of the premier bassists in the Philadelphia tri-state area. Dale is well known to fans for his explosive piano and organ work and trademark fedora hiding his face as he strides along the keyboard. Bill brings many years of professional performance on the double bass gained as an orchestral and jazz bassist and sideman for numerous popular music groups.

This show presents predominately original music that David has been, with the help of Dale and Bill, exploring for years and represents another side of David from the work he’s done with his son Adrian. These first rate veterans promise a night of music that will have the critics raving. It is about time for the music world to take note of this exceptionally fine player and songwriter, and his able sidemen.

Tommy Froelich is a Chester County, Pennsylvania, based blues/rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He delivers powerful performances, captivating audiences with his smooth vocals and compelling soulful energy on guitar. His diverse writing style is inspired by his love of classic rock and roll, old school blues and country music influences. Tommy has evolved over his twenty-five-year career as a professional musician, appearing in many bands, performing at countless local venues, festivals and corporate events in and around the Delaware Valley. In 2015, one of his current lineups, the Tommy Froelich Trio, earned the coveted honor of becoming the house band for Philadelphia’s classic rock radio station 102.9 WMGK. During their reign, the trio had the opportunity to perform many corporate and radio sponsored events, including MGK's annual Big Gig concert at the BB&T Center, sharing the bill with Joe Walsh and Bad Company. Andre Gardener, disc jockey and on-air personality at WMGK, touts “Watching Tommy play live is pure joy. He and his guitar are truly one – and what a combination that is.”

In 2016, Tommy released his first album, Roads Less Traveled, recorded at Noisy Little Critter Studio in Thorndale, PA. The album offers twelve original tracks combining blues and rock influenced sound to create an eclectic textured mix of well composed heartfelt tunes. Several songs from this album have gotten air play on internet radio and WSTW 93.7 FM, where he was also a featured guest on their Hometown Heroes radio show with Mark Rogers. Tommy’s follow up EP Time Well Spent was released in May 2017 and recorded at Philly Sound Studios in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, features four original tracks.

Along with the Trio, Tommy has expanded the band with additional pro players to offer a variety of top notch lineups. They play a broad mix of blues and classic rock favorites in addition to his rock'n original material.

The Philadelphia Jug Band traces its roots to the Second Philadelphia Folk Festival where two of the band members as high school kids heard Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band for the first time. We never turned back! At that time there was an explosion of jug band music that was a fun-filled, irreverent offshoot of the massive folk revival. There was a lot of great material to draw from, and we soaked it up. From the beginning, our best venue was the festival. Before there was camping, we camped. Once there was camping, we would play and welcome any and all to join. The Jug Band Campsite has grown as our families and friends have expanded, and is one of the “must stop” places for festers doing a “walk about”. There is a parade of great musicians through each night – and always a surprise or two. Our fest roots have led to many other opportunities at festivals and venues but in the end, the greatest love of the band is the Philadelphia Folk Festival and its awesome campground.
