Gaz Mayall

 

Gaz Mayall DJ's and hosts London's longest running one-nighter Gaz's Rockin Blues. He occasionally plays live with his ska band The Trojans. He first began Gaz's Rockin' Blues in July 1980 after a few guest appearances at the Two-Tone club, Oxford Street in 1979.

 

The eldest son of Blues legend John Mayall, Gaz was raised on a musical diet of R&B and was dragged around every beat, pop & rock festival and venues throughout the sixties as a child. First becoming a lifelong fan of reggae as a kid on the football terraces in the skin head era circa 1968-72.

 

Gaz began collecting records aged 17, bulk buying cheap reggae and ska collections down street markets such as Portbello road and Brick Lane at a time when it seemed no one wanted them.

 

Also a great fan of boogie woogie, rock'n'roll, traditional Irish music, funk and world music, Gaz, heavily influenced by a family friend, Radio One DJ and blues musician Alexis Korner, pursued his love of music in earnest and now has a world famous collection of predominantly black dance music ranging from the first tribal drum beats to the latest drum&bass.
