MBAS Blues Jam Nights

The MBAS Tuesday Night House of Blues Jam provides a meeting point for Blues musicians. It is a source of entertainment for members of MBAS and lovers of Blues music and it is a showcase for emerging talents in the Blues scene.

The Jam Night has a Jam Coordinator/Stage Manager and Sound Engineer. The Jam Coordinator is responsible for forming combos from the jammers who have nominated.

The order placed on the board is not necessarily the order of who will play first.

The Jam Coordinator determines the order, encouraging discussion and negotiation with all jammers present to provide fair opportunity, maximum inclusion and, where possible, a varied mix.


Musicians and music lovers all welcome

Smokin Sam
8:00pm - 8.45pm
Jam Session:    9:00pm - 11:00pm


Smokin Sam is a Melbourne-based blues harmonica player and session musician playing his own brand of Australian blues, and is equally at home as a blues or funk vocalist. Sam often tours Bali as a special guest, and travels around Victoria with the All Stars band, performing a unique style of blues music and contemporary rock.

Whether performing with his own blues band – Cargo Blues Band – or simply as Smokin Sam himself, Sam's solid vocals accompanied by trademark, blistering-yet-soulful blues or funky harp renditions of both yesteryear and today, leaves audiences applauding for more. When he has a harmonica in hand, Smokin Sam is one mean son of a gun! In 2015 Sam's harmonica playing featured on the soundtrack of the movie "StalkHer", and the John Jarratt debut single "Killer In Me".

Cargo Blues Band originally formed for the 2013 Echuca Winter Blues Festival. A resounding success at the festival, they've been wowing audiences with their expressive blues and R&B ever since. Fronted by Italian-born front man/singer/harmonica player Smokin Sam Salzone, the full band comprises Ken Hatton on guitar, backed by the solid rhythm section of bassist Lefty Ray Wooley – who has played in many blues outfits in Melbourne, and Pistol Peter Williamson on drums.
