jazz jam + show
every 1st + 3rd Tuesday of the month at 8pm
Our Jazz hosts kick off the show at 8pm and treat the audience to a professional jazz performance. After the first hour, we open it up to the jammers for the opportunity to hone their skills and trade licks with some of the finest players in the area!
Our jam balances high level playing with a spirit of welcome and community. Host bands take turns making your visit to the jam a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Every Tuesday has a different feel. Whether you’re a pro or a student, you’ll have a great time. Come watch or play!
