We were so knocked out that the mighty Jamie Cullum was added to the brilliant BluesFest roster at Under the Bridge we decided to celebrate by quizzing him with a few quick questions. He didn’t disappoint. (And we’re already scouring the web for his early ‘abomination’ of a band… )

Under The Bridge: What do you remember about your first ever London gig?

Jamie Cullum: “My first London gig was at the Half Moon in Putney with a rock band I will never divulge the name of. I am scared some footage might turn up on YouTube. This band was an abomination.”

UTB: You like to keep your performances fresh. What can the audience expect from upcoming shows?

JC: “I like to go out there with no set-list so my mind is clear, ready to present a unique performance. There is something magical and more nerve-racking about doing a hometown gig. There will be plenty of energy, lots of audience interaction and maybe… just maybe… shards of a new tune or two.”

UTB: You’re a welcome addition to the Bluesfest line-up. Which other artist are you most looking forward to seeing?

JC: “It has to be Georgie Fame — one of the most important musicians in this country. I absolutely love him.”

UTB: You must have been delighted to hear the gig sold out within 24 hours… Have you done a recce of Under The Bridge yet?

JC: “A friend of mine went to see the Guillemots and proclaimed it the best new venue to play music in, in London. I like the sound of that!”

UTB: As a UK music great we need a photo of you on the walls Under The Bridge — any favourites you’d recommend?

JC: “Yep — Georgie FAME!!!!”

Cheers, Jamie.
