What we're about

Calling all live music performers looking to jam with other musicians and singers to improve those musical skills!

This structured jam looks at blocking out half the session looking at standard songs and working on versions of covers and the second half is creative jamming. Sign up for either or both.

Challenge yourself by learning new tunes from the song list each month to jam out in the room, or put forward your favourite tunes for others to sign up with, learn and to jam with on the day.

The key must be provided for others to learn if different from the original. 4. Instruments must be tuned before starting the jam. 5.
