Real blues starts at jams. For this Meetup let's get together on 420 at Ziggies for the Mile High Blues Society Jam! Westword magazine -- Denver's music and entertainment weekly -- named it Denver Best Blues Jam. It's been goin' on for 40 years at Ziggies, so they must be doing something right. It is a fun, social event. Yes, there will be dancing!
The host band will be led by Brad Stivers of Bad Brad & The Fat Cats. This will be a farewell jam for Brad and his brother, drummer Alec Stivers, as they are moving to Austin TX soon. Special guests are expected to drop in and join in the jam.
Jams are all about having fun, and this jam is the best. We will hear raw, inspired blues from talented locals,
The jam is free. Street parking is free. The event has been filling up early every Sunday, so please be there early. Bad Brad and the band will start playing at 7pm and you don't want to miss that.
Let's meet up a little before 7pm and sit in "The Pit," the area adjacent to the dance floor. I'll be playing blues harp in the host band, The Blues Allstars, and hangin' with you guys after that.
