Open JAZZ Sesh

Thursday - February, 21 @ 9:00pm

Attention jazz players of Portland and the surrounding area!

Come one come all for an impromtu jam session!  Informal and fun for both those playing and listening.  There will be a house band, of course!  Come sit in, call tunes, suggest a key and riff on that, try out something new you've been working on, etc...

Not a jazz player?  That's okay!  I'm sure there'll be something for you to jump in on.  Let's keep this loose and fun, it doesn't have to be strictly jazz, afterall jazz itself isn't exactly strict!

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!

Hosted by Jordan Bicki (gigging guitarist & bassist, studied jazz at The HART School)
