The Jam are one of the most iconic bands in British history. Continuing to keep the legacy of this illustrious band alive is legendary former member Bruce Foxton as ‘From The Jam’. Since forming in 2007, From The Jam have been an unstoppable force, delighting thousands of fans, with their powerful performances at headline-shows and festivals in the UK.
At such a troubling time for the live events industry, From The Jam (Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings) have created a series of socially distanced, limited capacity shows, that will adhere to all current safety restrictions for ‘An Audience with’ the band. These intimate shows will feature Bruce and Russell playing acoustically, along with personal stories from a lifetime in music.
“Both Bruce and myself are dying to get back out on the road doing what we do best! It’s been a very difficult year for everybody and we’re sure this will bring a sense normality back to all who come including ourselves,” says Russell.
From the Jam is comprised of legendary former ‘The Jam’ bassist Bruce Foxton, vocalist & guitarist Russell Hastings. Russell Hastings has been the only front man to work with both Rick Buckler and Bruce Foxton since The Jam disbanded and has been earning the respect of fans across the world with his passion, knowledge of the band’s work and his stellar performances.
Forming in 1977, The Jam had 18 consecutive Top 40 singles and all six of their studio albums made the Top 25 in the UK Album Charts. With albums such as The Gift and Sound Affects reaching No.1 and No.2 respectively, The Jam are well known for their iconic catalogue of songs such as The Eton Rifles, Going Underground, That’s Entertainment and many more.
Alongside performing iconic songs by The Jam, ‘From the Jam’ have also released two critically acclaimed records (Back in the Room & Smash the Clock) in 2012 and 2016 respectively and in 2017, the band reached the Top 10 in the UK with their live album, ‘From the Jam – Live!’
