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.

 

ENTRY IS FREE! 
Musicians and music lovers all welcome
