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

CAMERON HOLMES & THE BLUES DUDES

Cameron Holmes & The Blues Dudes is a five-piece original blues outfit led by singer-songwriter-guitarist Cameron Holmes and accompanied by the talents of drummer Cale Burke, bassist Sam Hudson, saxophone player Ian Maddick and harmonica player John Hunter – all seasoned performers in their own right before joining the band.

Since 2015, Cameron Holmes & The Blues Dudes have wowed audiences in Melbourne and rural Victoria; the Echuca Moama Winter Blues Festival, Bendigo's Blues and Roots Festival, on the famous Blues Train and on community radio and TV. Their single 'War Horse' plays on community radio in the US, Canada and the UK and has been well received on the Australian Blues radio stations. Their song list continues to grow with contributions from band members some of whom are singer-songwriters themselves.

Cameron Holmes and The Blues Dudes collectively bring years of musicianship and stage experience from their former and current membership of other bands encompassing many genres, but tons of good solid blues. Most songs are the work of Cameron Holmes but a collaborative spirit polishes and sharpens the works adding a uniquely Melbourne twist. Dynamics, emotion, powerful performances and creative variety distinguish Cameron Holmes and The Blues Dudes who create an intense musical experience for audiences every time they play.
