Acknowledged as the best tribute band for the Jam, the Jam’d are to perform at Knaresborough Working Men’s Club on Wednesday 16 August during feva.
The Jam’d play all of the old favorites of the Jam, one of Britain’s most popular rock and pop music acts of the late 1970s, early 1980s. They have built a large following in their own right in their energetic performances of the Jam’s classics such as Eton Rifles, Down in the Tube Station at Midnight, Town called Malice, The Beat Surrender and Going Underground.
They gig up and down the country and it has been something of a coup for the feva organising committee to land them for the Festival. They are sure to be a big draw.
“We are delighted to have been able to book them,” said Lucy Barrow. “The Jam’d are totally committed to giving an authentic, unforgettable performance with all of the energy and passion of the core Jam line-up, Paul Weller, Bruce Foxton and Rick Butler.
“The concert will allow the audience to relive the experience of one of the most influential bands of the British music scene. The show features their own brass section and includes the only replica of Rick Butler’s ‘Great White drum kit.
The Jam formed in 1977 and ran until 1982, having 18 consecutive top-40 single hits, including four number ones. Their final album, the Gift, went to the top of the UK’s album charts in 1982.
