This description is from Shine's coffee house web listing: << Weekly Sacramento Jazz Jam every Tuesday night at Shine! Come out and help support a more vibrant jazz scene in Sacramento (located at 14th and E downtown, Sacramento). House band will play/open at 8pm and will feature the Jason Galbraith Quartet: Open jam starts at 8:30ish so bring your instrument! Please purchase a beverage, coffee, or pastry to keep this a weekly jam! >> [Note: This meetup is not hosted by me, Martha, despite my photo appearing under our RSVPs. If you go, have a great time without me, take pics and post them here for all of us, please! I went in June 2014 and was impressed by the high caliber jazz musicians who jammed. Special thanks to Farrell for tipping me off to this weekly jazz jam happening!]
