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



Held weekly every Tuesday evening

drum sticks and whatever instrument you play.
Everyone is welcome to come along.

Tuesday Night House of Blues

Tuesday, 17th May 2016

Nick Charles Featuring:  JLS & CO - 8:00pm - 8.45pm
Jam Session:    9:00pm - 11:00pm

JLS & co. is an energetic new rock-blues band formed by John-Luke Shelley and Johnny Tesoriero. The two musicians have collaborated and each written songs for a new album, which they plan to release by the end of this year.

Lead guitarist and singer, John-Luke Shelley hails from Geelong, where he began playing guitar seriously from the age of 16, influenced in the first instance by his father Brett. His band High Speed Steel acquired a following via performances at events like Broadbeach Blues Festival, the Queenscliff Music Festival and Guitars across the Bay. The band was runner-up at the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society’s Blues Performer of the Year in 2012. John-Luke has also been part of another impressive young band, Three Tones, since 2013.

Johnny T is a professional drummer who has been playing professionally since the age of 15, playing everything from blues, rockabilly, rock, jazz to heavy metal. career highlights include working with Stevie Wright, opening for the Foo Fighters, and gigs at The Basement.

Completing the band are keyboardist Jeremy Neumann (has worked with Natty Wailer, Stevie Paige) ; and bassist Chris Win (who has been playing professionally around Melbourne since he was 12).

Whether playing blues classics or original songs, JLS & co. has an individual, melodic style that incorporates the vocal harmonies of Johnny, Chris and Jeremy.
