From the Jam, featuring the band’s original bassist, Bruce Foxton, will close this year’s Ventnor festival with a grand finale show on April 21.
And with a reputation for incendiary live shows and a string of hits by The Jam, including Going Underground, Beat Surrender and Town Called Malice, they are sure to put on a great show in the festival marquee.
A driving force in The Jam’s rhythm section, Foxton spent 15 years with another seminal British band, Stiff Little Fingers.
He will be joined by Russell Hastings, a collaborator of The Jam drummer Rick Buckler. Fans of the British new wave, ska and mod revival scenes are in for a treat, as From the Jam will take to the stage following a performance by The Skatonics.
They will be unleashing some classic sounds from the 1960s and 2 Tone era of the 1970s and 80s.
