Steve Ajao’s Blues Giants
30th September

Steve Ajao's Blues Giants

Although he is more familiar to Silvershine audiences as a fabulous Bebop saxophononist, Steve Ajao has been steeped in the Blues and Jazz all his life. As a Blues guitarist Steve Ajao, with his Blues Giants (Mike Hatton Bass, and former Au Pairs drummer Pete ‘Washboard’ Hammond), has been amazing audiences for nearly 30 years. Steve is regarded by many as one of the hottest Blues guitarists in the UK, and, Although relatively ‘undiscovered’, in the 1980’s Blues legend Alexis Korner saw a big future for Steve and was ready to help promote his career before his untimely death in 1984.

It's a few years since the Blues Giants last played here, but whenever they have it's been a rip-roaring success, so it’s only natural that we should invite them back for more of the same!

Ari Hoenig


Drummer, Ari Hoenig is a major US Jazz musician. He will be performing at the Silvershine Club with guitarist Tom Ollendorff and bassist Connor Chaplin. This will be a one off Friday gig on 8th October @ 7.30pm.

There will be a support act, the Torin Davies Quartet, made up of Conservatoire musicians.

 Tickets are now on sale at TicketLab 

Thanks For Your Support
We've made our target!

So it's a big thankyou all round. Here's amessage from our organisers, Paul and Kim:

“ Hey guys!

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year! We just wanted to say a big thank you for all the generous donations we received towards our GoFundMe page. With your help, we reached our target in just a few weeks, and can now start planning for our big return in 2021 when restrictions are lifted! We have many exciting plans for the Silvershine in the coming year, including a live recorded album featuring the beautiful voice of Vic Evans, as well as many gigs to help keep jazz alive in Birmingham and give the city’s young jazz musicians a stage to showcase their talent!

Thanks again for all the love and support we’ve received over the years and we look forward to seeing you again at the Silvershine (hopefully) very soon!

Also looking forward to the gig and album launch for Dr Steve Tromans that we've had to postpone twice now due to the pandemic! Can’t wait for this one to happen!

Watch this space… ”
