They will be doing a select number of dates performing this album from start to finish along with a selection of the classic hits and great album tracks.

The Jam had amazing chart success with 18 singles and 7 albums to make the top 40 in the United Kingdom from their debut in 1977 to their break up in 1982. Their last 5 albums were all top ten hits and their last 8 singles made it into the top 10.’ Just Who Is the 5 O'Clock Hero?’ made the charts at no 8 as an import and remains the best-selling import singles of all time in the UK.

BRUCE FOXTON is a part of the English Rock and Roll establishment. A musician (born 1/9/1955 Woking,Surrey) who is most commonly recognised as the bass player in legendary The Jam and Stiff Little Fingers.

In The Jam, he and drummer Rick Buckler were the driving force, power and rhythm section behind singer, guitarist, and songwriter Paul Weller. Bruce’s versatility is evident, taking lead vocals on ‘David Watts’ (The Kinks) and ‘News Of The World’, which was one from his own catalogue of o compositions. Foxton’s most notable work being ‘Smithers-Jones’, featuring bass/guitar/drums for the B-side of ‘When You're Young’ and later reworked with strings for the ‘Setting Sons’ LP.

After The Jam split in '82, Foxton pursued a solo career. He had a hit with the single ‘Freak’ and collaborated with other musicians, until he got the call from Stiff Little Fingers' Jake Burns, staying with SLF for fifteen years, recording four albums, namely, ‘Flags and Emblems’, ‘Get a Life’, ‘Tinderbox’ and ‘Guitar and Drum’.

In 1994, Rick Buckler and Bruce collaborated on ‘Our Story’, a biography of their eventful and cherished years in The Jam. Bruce toured with Bruce Watson, Mark Brzezicki (Big Country) and Simon Townshend (The Who) in 2006 as The Casbah Club supporting The Who in the U.K and Europe promoting their new album ‘Venustraphobia’.

MARK BRZEZICKI is primarily known for his work with Big Country, and is a former member of the groups The Cult, Ultravox, and Procol Harum. He has also played with Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Midge Ure, Fish, The Pretenders and many others.
With Tony Butler (of Big Country) he was known as ‘Rhythm for Hire’. Brzezicki left Big Country in July 1989, but rejoined in 1993. Big Country started gigging again in 2007, as part of their 25th anniversary tour.

In 2004, Brzezicki helped found a new band, Casbah Club, with Bruce Foxton and Simon Townshend.

Smash Hits magazine had a running gag in the 1980s wherein they referred to him as "Mark Unpronounceablename of Big Country". On Pete Townshend's ‘All the Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes’ and ‘White City: A Novel’ albums there are joking references to the spelling of his last name…!

RUSSELL HASTINGS (born 6th July 1965,Sussex England) worked with Rick Buckler since November 2005. A musician/vocalist in his own right Russell has shocked audiences nationwide this year with his authentic and passionate interpretation in performance (vocals and guitar) of The Jam's back catalogue.

Russell grew up on The Jam and this is evident in his attention to every detail, from the Rickenbacker to the Marshall 4x4 everything as it was and should be. Energy, pride, execution and dynamic delivery have created an anticipation for 2010 as he collaborates once more with Bruce as From The Jam.

A celebration of the music of THE JAM, featuring original bassist BRUCE FOXTON.

Guitarist Russell Hastings is the only frontman other than Weller to have worked with both Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler (former The Jam drummer). His passion and understanding of The Jam has entitled him to be credited by fans and critics alike as the perfect candidate to respectfully and admirably slip into the shoes of former The Jam frontman Paul Weller, with whom he also worked alongside in 2011.

All Tickets £25.
Doors open 7.30pm.

This gig, a Colchester Arts Centre Fundraiser, is for a standing audience.
