Roomfulla Blues Jam Night – MC Nick Granville

Thursday, 26 February 2015 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm

Come and jam with the house band, see the MC for the night, get your new songs out there, polish the old ones, have fun, be prepared to jam with others.

The phrase “jam session” came about in the 1920’s when white and black musicians would congregate after their regular paying gigs, to play the jazz they couldn’t in the “Paul Whiteman” style bands. Bing Crosby would often attend these sessions, and the musicians would say he was “jammin’ the beat”, since he would clap on the one and the three. Thus these sessions became known as “jam sessions”.  – Ref: Really The Blues” by Mezz Mezzrow
