Tuesday - April, 12 @ 9:00pm

JAZZ PLAYERS come one, come all for the weekly open jam session!  Informal and fun for both those playing and listening.

The Sesh will start out with a 45 minute set from the HOUSE BAND - each week there will be a house band with a weekly featured artist!

Jazz musicians of various backgrounds converge to play tunes from the American Songbook of jazz standards.  Sit in, call a tune, "bring your axe and blow".

The Portland area has a thriving Jazz scene and we want to see that community come together!  There's no better way of exploring and growing in music than by playing with new people.  Come make some music, friends, and memories!


There is a SIGN-UP SHEET that will be posted an hour before the session on one of the tables closest to the door! If you’d like to play a tune please write your name, instrument and your call on the sheet before the session begins, this will help us to stay organized through the night so that no one is skipped or left out during the session.

If you have any questions regarding the format of the session or are interested in being our featured artist please reach out to ED MITCHELL, our host of the sesh:
