About the Broken Chair Country & Blues Club

Nigel Bagge & Eddie Armer – Nigel provides the smoky vocals, fiery but sensitive guitar, blues with a big helping of country, soul & rock’n’roll. As the original guitarist in Nicky Moore’s Blues Corporation, he toured The UK and Europe and later became the guitar-man for Angela Brown (Chicago blues diva) and her band The Mighty 45s. Apart from touring much of Europe and head-lining major festivals, Nigel’s guitar was captured by legendary producer, Mike Vernon on Angela’s album: “Thinking Out Loud”.  Nigel has since worked with such legends as Chris Farlowe, Miller Anderson and Fleetwood Mac’s Peter Green. Eddie brings his extraordinary harmonica skills, which have led to working with Pete Seger, Odetta and Ronnie Wood to name but a few. He also fronts the “Lonnigans Skiffle Band” (A Must see Act!). Recently, Eddie received a number of “nods” for his playing in various music publications.

The Professor David Minns – former owner of Brighton’s legendary Borderline Records’ and called The Prof because of his encyclopedic knowledge of Country Music.

Dr Bob Brookes – The Rock ‘n’ Roll Doctor, Frontman and Harmonica player for The Desperate Dan Band. Played with some of the great country and blues legends such as Sherman Robertson, Larry Garner, Chris Farlowe.

Why the name?

There was an kernel of an idea for a once a month specialist club. A club for people who were into their Country and Blues and wanted to share that passion for quality music and artists. It was during Bob’s time as the owner of a pub in Worthing, when he opened the door to the newly inherited function room that he discovered a stage with a solitary broken dining chair in the middle … The Broken Chair Country and Blues Club name was born. Luckily, the chairs at the Village Hall are all superb, but the name and premise of the club lives on today.
