What we're about

If you are into playing the BLUES and you live in the Orange County area, then this is the place to be! This group is all about getting musicians and music fans together for friendship, camaraderie, and playing the BLUES. We are meeting up to jam the blues at least twice a month, with occasional jams being scheduled in between (not all hosted by us, many are hosted by friends). We are a mixture of professional, hobby, and novice musicians. Some are looking for a break from organized bands and gigs, and some just want to jam with new songs and new faces. These jams are an ideal way to improvise, and to get an opportunity to play on stage. Our jams are not "pro" jams. We encourage those who are just developing (or redeveloping) their skills, to come out, join up, and play along! All forms of BLUES are welcome here, the key word being BLUES (not rock, not jazz). Feel free to bring along your own BLUES song list to work from and share with the others on stage. Welcome Aboard!!!

Great venue down in the heart of Huntington Beach, where all the action is! Hosted blues jam, the band plays the first set, then the jamming starts. Extended hours for jamming, plenty of time for everyone to play. Full backline provided, just bring your axe (or your stix, or your harps, or whatever it is you need to do your thing). The bar validates tickets from the parking structure directly under the building, so bring your ticket in with you. Metered parking on the street, or go down past 6th Ave and no more meters.
