Makin' Music Network

At The Heart of Music!




Since musicians often learn of jam sessions through word of mouth, I thought I'd start a forum where musicians & fans can share this information. Please let us know who is hosting, the name of the venue, the address, time of session, type of setup (are amplifiers, PA, instruments provided?), & any other info that might be pertinent.

Trumpets Jazz Club hosts two jams each month: the second and fourth Thursdays from 7:30 pm-11:30 pm. The second Thurs. of month is hosted by trumpeter Ted Curson. There is a trio provided, but you can substitute regulars, if you play piano, bass and drums. We usually get mostly instrumentalists and seasoned vocalists at that jam. The fourth Thurs. is hosted by pianist Betty Liste, who is backed by bass and drums. It is a Singers' jam, but instrumentalists are welcome to sit-in with singers. This jam is ideal for beginning singers, as well as professional singers who want to try out a few new tunes with a live band. Betty is a terrific accompanist. This jam also begins at 7:30 and ends at 11:30. $10 cover (to pay for back-up band) $5 min. We tried making it free, but didn't get enough support to pay the band and we want to keep this going. If anyone knows of corporate sponsorship, please let me know. I'd love the jam sessions to be free.
Please tell me where Trumpets Jazz Club is located.
Thanks,
Yvonne Applewhaite
