Fat Tuesday Blues Jam @ Winchester Community Music School

The Fat Tuesday Blues Jam is made up of a growing community of serious hobbyist musicians and one simple concept: musical camaraderie. Our aim is to make jamming fun again by providing you with everything you need to just focus on playing:


1) A state-of-the-art, professional performance space

2) Gear*: guitar and bass amps, drums, a piano and a professional PA system (just bring your instrument)

3) A house band comprised of patient, supportive and experienced professional musicians

4) A regular schedule: jams are held monthly

5) A supportive environment w/ no attitudes or egos allowed - just great players, cool tunes and a fun hang

In addition to the actual monthly jam sessions, we’ve also created opportunities for you to stay active in the weeks between each jam:

Practice Tracks

The blues faculty @ WCMS have created nearly a dozen blues practice tracks based on the exact tunes covered in each jam session to keep you jamming and learning all month long.

Want to try out a new lick or get a song’s chord changes down before the next jam? Head on over to our WCMS Soundcloud page to get started (www.soundcloud.com and search for Winchester Community Music School - click on the Fat Tuesday Set). Best of all? They’re free!

Hosted by Boston-area singer/songwriter, harp player and WCMS Harmonica Faculty, Tim Gartland (timgartland.com)

    Kudos to the Master of Ceremonies for a fine job managing the evening! And, to everyone who attended, thanks for the kind support. It was my first time playing with a band in front of people.

    Looking forward to Tuesday, as it is such a fun environment to learn and take something away from each jam, that keeps making you a better player.
