Throughout London, music venues have been closing to make way for apartment blocks and affordable home for people who cannot afford them. The London Astoria and the Marquee are no more. But one still stands amongst the huddle of London’s Oxford Street, and that ladies and gentleman, is the 100 Club.

Down a few stairs leads you to this iconic venue that’s held host to legends from Muddy Waters to The Who. Metallica to The Kinks. One thing that grabs my attention is the doorman offering a few lucky people a real treat as myself and the attendees are walking down those stairs. He offers us, in his words and I totally agree “The king of the Biscuit” The chocolate hob nob. Oh, hell yeah. A great start to the night!

Whilst, walking into this venue, immediately the pictures of history grab you attention as they are planted around for all to see.

On stage sitting at her keyboard while a bassist sits to one side of her and the guitarist the other is Elles Bailey. Who informs us of the knowledge and love she has for past legends, which greets us to a cover of Howling Wolf’s ‘Spoonful’. A great warm up for the headline act.
