One Hundred Nights at the 100 Club is a book documenting 100 different nights at London's longest running and revered music venue.
Two photographers have combined their coverage of years' worth of gigs at London's 100 Club and are reaching out to you to help fund the book. This year, it's the 75th anniversary of live music at the club. Perfect timing!
"The idea of this book started life, like a lot of things, down the pub. We were four mates and regular gig goers, moaning about the prospect of yet another music venue being forced to close."
"And then it came to us. Two of us - Darren Russell and Kingsley Davis are regular photographers at the 100 Club. Stephen Dowling is a music writer, and Neil Pond is a publishing project manager. That meant we had an archive of photographs taken at London's most iconic venue, spanning four decades, and writing and design experience as well. The 100 Club's 75th anniversary was approaching, so we saw the opportunity to create a high-quality photographic book that would not only celebrate this wonderful venue, but also include the voices of the people who help make the 100 Club what it is."
Bands in the book include such diverse musicians as Babyshambles, Chuck Berry, Hugh Laurie and Lee Scratch Perry!
