This group is for any amateur jazz musicians or singers who want to get together to practice playing and improvising over jazz standards in a fun and supportive atmosphere. It's better and more motivating to make music together! You don't have to take a solo and can comp or play the written melody but you must be able to play your instrument in time and at tempo. Singers are welcome to scat too. Jam sessions announced in this meetup group are not all the same - they are organized and hosted independently. Please read the session descriptions carefully as each session and host may have a different format, songbook or other expectations. Check the website pages and discussion board for more information.
Members are encouraged to host or organize their own jam sessions. The number of attendee's at a jam is almost always limited and an RSVP required. If you RSVP for a jam, it's a commitment to show up on time and play or sing. Most events are private and do not allow for an audience or guests. If you have to cancel, please release your RSVP at least 24 hours beforehand so someone else has the opportunity to attend and contribute to the session. If you get on the waitlist, RSVP's may get adjusted 48 hours before the jam to balance the instrumentation and vocals. Anyone remaining on the waitlist will be given preference for a subsequent jam but it's down to the host.
Come join us and indulge yourself in an afternoon of unforgettable and timeless pieces of good music presented by our group of fantastic musicians and vocalists.
