JCM – In Memory of Jon Hiseman

Don't Miss Out
Time: Tuesday 7.30pm
Cost: £17.50 in Advance | £20.00 on the Door

Legendary drummer and JCM founder Jon Hiseman died in the early hours of Tuesday, 12th June 2018 in Sutton, England aged 73, leaving his wife, saxophonist and composer Barbara Thompson, his daughter, singer Ana Gracey and his son, financier Marcus Hiseman, along with four grandchildren.

The cause of death was complications of surgery that he underwent in May 2018 to remove a brain tumour.

“…he left a huge void in the lives of family, friends, fellow musicians and all those he had met and inspired during a lifetime of dedication to music.”

Extract from rock music critic and author Chris Welch’s Tribute to Jon Hiseman

In the last year of his life, Jon Hiseman formed JCM, a trio with the Colosseum members Clem Clempson, on guitar, and Mark Clarke, on bass. The group made an album, “Heroes,” that contained music written by former collaborators Hiseman had outlived, among them Jack Bruce, Allan Holdsworth, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Graham Bond and Ollie Halsall. Ironically, the album will become a tribute to Hiseman himself.

JCM began a tour in April 2018, but cancelled it as the brain tumour advanced. Clem and Mark would like to announce that in alignment with Jon’s wishes, JCM is movin’ on with Ralph Salmins on the drums, see below for tour dates.
