Come Jam on stage with other like-minded musicians - those loving traditional jazz music from the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s!
Jammin' starts at 1:00 p.m. on the dot! We like to kick it off with a couple lively tunes by the "house band" then open up the stage to all who dare to experience an afternoon of fun and enjoyment among a bunch of friendly folk!
Singers. . .don't forget, you count as musicians as well! . . Muscians of the voice. So, please do come with your song book or list of songs and keys. If you have neither, the jazz club is a great place to look around for an experienced musician who might be open helping you develop the tools you'll need for the best performance.
One word of advice from the "jam team", it's best to establish a collection of jam tunes that are commonly known, easy to follow because, remember, jammin' means folks are not typically rehearsed or playing with each other on a regular basis. Avoid obscure, complicated tunes. Keep it simple and upbeat for dancin' and the jammin' takes off like a rocket. Once we've got the dancers tuckered out a bit, we'll toss in a nice slow, romantic number to give them a rest but still keep 'em on the floor enjoying the performance.
Please tell us a little about yourself, your musical influences, style and favorite tunes using the form below. Click submit and we'll be looking for you to step on in with your ax (musical instrument) in hand to do a little "cuttin' up". You will need to sign-in at the jammer station when you arrive so we know you've arrived AND so you get your free raffle ticket.
