    Open Jazz Jam
    It’s been a long while since we’ve had any kind of a regular jazz jam in Guelph or really anywhere nearby. @andrew.schoetty has spearheaded this one and I’m happy to be in the house band with him and @kevinmakmusic!
    I’ve been to some jazz jams that have been geared towards real beginners. That’s cool, there’s definitely a place for that but there’s also kind of a ceiling to it and sometimes it discourages more experienced players. And some times jazz jams can be super intimidating with a lot of ego flexing. That has it’s place too, it’s almost baked into the culture of the music. But it can also be a real vibe killer. So I’m hoping this can have the best of both worlds where people who are maybe less confident can feel welcome and have a chance to play, but also make time and space for more experienced players (the “badass m@therf@ckers” in jazz parlance) to flex what they’ve got too. I would love it if both of those things and all points in between could co-exist. But nothing happens without people, so come on out and let’s make it happen!
    It’s Pay What You Can so come on out, sit in with us, kick us off stage or just come hang and listen. This Sunday!
