Is food a problem for you? Do you binge, purge or restrict? Is your weight affecting your life? If so you may be a compulsive eater and Overeaters Anonymous could help you. To find out take the quiz at www.oaquiz.org or come along to our NEW ULVERSTON MEETING.

Overeaters Anonymous is for anyone who has issues with food. It offers a 12 step programme for physical, emotional and spiritual recovery from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviours. It is a fellowship of individuals who share their experiences, work the steps and offer understanding and support to each other without judgement. There are no dues, no fees, no weigh-ins and no diets.

1000’s of people around the world have recovered using this programme and now eat normally and maintain a healthy body weight. The OA programme offers a plan for living and brings increased peace of mind, clarity and a sense of fulfilment in life. OA is open to everyone regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation and beliefs. Although it is a spiritual programme you do not need to believe in God, the only requirement for membership of OA is a desire to stop eating compulsively.

A warm welcome awaits you at the Ulverston meeting held on the first Tuesday if every month at the Parish Centre, Church Walk, Ulverston, LA12 7EN at 7.30pm. Please feel confident just to come along or call 07747 525088 for more information.

Jackson Sloan and the Rhythmtones @ Coronation Hall

Jackson Sloan and the Rhythmtones will be opening the Retro Rendezvous festival on Friday night at the Coro.

Jackson Sloan, over the years, has built up a reputation as an exceptionally talented and gifted frontman. Jackson’s love of the music evolved from his parents record collection which led to Jackson attending live gigs both in his own home town of Southend-on-Sea, all over Essex, London and Europe.

“The 100 Club, London was my spiritual home, where I could get up close to my heros, the great blues shouters, Jimmy Witherspoon, Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, Jay Mcshann, Memphis Slim, Champion Jack Dupree, Big Joe Williams. Along with becoming a record collector, this became my passion to try to emulate these great musicians and voices, I got to meet the musicians and talk to them personally – I felt very priveleged”

In 1982 Jackson formed ‘Rent Party’, a jump jive rhythm blues band playing the sounds of Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, Jimmy Liggins and Wynonie Harris, along with the Chevalier Brothers they helped pioneer the jump sounds both in the UK and in Europe. Rent Party held a weekly residency at the railway hotel and the queens hotel in Southend-on-Sea, packing out these two iconic venues led to an agency deal in London. Rent Party then became one of the best live acts around. Numerous tours led to the band being invited by George Wein to play the Kool Festival in New York and three nights at top Roots music venue, the Lone Star in Greenwich village. Rent Party released four singles and one live album on waterfront records culminating in working with top blues producer Mike Vernon.

“Working with Mike Vernon was a real pleasure, we recorded four tracks live an an old church hall using a fostex 16 track – Mike did a terrific job, that really helped promote the band.” After Rent Party folded and went separate ways in the roots music word Jackson teamed up with ex-Rent Party musicians and formed seven piece rhythmn blues band Oobopshbam playing and touring all over the Uk and Europe recording a studio and live album.

Jackson had a conversation with good friend Ray Gelato which led to recording a solo album. “Ray encouraged me to write original songs and record in a way that the classic records of Atlantic, Federal, Imperial and speciality had a great live feel. After getting together in London with Ray Gelato and his great pianist Gunter Kurmeyer, they started putting together the songs. They brought in a top doublebass player Peter Pritchard who’s worked with Scotty Moore, Eric Clapton and Alvin Lee. Guitar duties fell to Richard Studholme whos played with Hubert Sumlin Big Jay McNeely Lowell Fulson, Carey Bell, Eric Bibb and many more. On drums Mike Thorne one of the best Rhythmn blues drummers in the Uk who also produced the recording at his vintage studios Rimshot.

Jackson Sloan’s new CD – ‘The Shack Sessions’ on Shellac records has put together Jackson’s love of jump blues, RNB, Rock n Roll, Boogie Woogie and Jive.
