Shelton Jazz Jam

Location image of event venue


The Shelton Jazz Jam echos Ron Smiths Vitamin J jam at Traditions in Oly. We provide a rhythm section and encourage players and singers from novice to advanced to participate. Educators are invited to bring a student or two,with an eye towards fostering an interest in this unequally American art form at a young age.Our pro level rhythm section members this time are Peter Hussey on keyboard and Ariel Calabria on Bass although they often switch around. Pete Chakos helps out on drums and hosts the Jam. We are an open Jam but occasionally allow for a special arrangement as a solo. We have a set of "The Real Book" in four keys and some crap mics. If you sing and have a mic you like, you might bring it, we have no vocal charts avail. so if you sing you will need to bring two copy's of your charts.The GroveStreet Brewhouse is a family friendly venue that has 40 varieties of loose leaf teas, great pizza menu, wonderful brews and ales, excellent acoustics and a lite open feel. Please join us Nov 17th for an amazing time. No cover charge but we do pass a hat to help cover expenses
