Gaz is still rockin' those blues

If you remember Gaz Mayall, his wide brimmed hat and trademark swagger, you probably haven't been enjoying his work as much he would like. The man behind London's longest running club night, Mayall, of Gaz's Rockin' Blues, is one of the best known names in British music.

Lead vocalist in ska band The Trojans, owner of Gaz's Rockin' Records and one man juggernaut behind the legendary club night, Gaz celebrates his 3rd decade in the business this year, and to mark the occasion he, along with Trolley books, will unveil "Gaz’s Rockin' Blues – The First 30 Years" on September 23.

From anecdotes involving the likes of Joe Strummer, Robert De Niro and Gaby Slater (all in one go) to recollections of first night jitters, the book is as much a biography as it is a history of contemporary British music - and with an outlook like this, it's easy to see why Gaz has lasted quite as long as he has "The majority of the people filling the club now weren’t even born when I started this...It’s got to be one of the few places where the kids can arrive with their parents without embarrassment.”

Gaz's Rockin Blues takes place every Thursday at St Moritz. 161 Wardour St, London W1F 8WJ. "Gaz’s Rockin' Blues – The First 30 Years" is available for £20 from September 23.
