After Hours Jam Sessions, July 31 to August 5.

Join us for great music, a relaxed atmosphere, a sympathetic inter-generational crowd and a fully licensed bar. Hosted by one of the faculty each night and with other guests dropping in to play, it's what the "hang" is all about. Jam sessions are the heart of after-hours jazz and are key to maintaining the jazz scene’s social fabric. They bring together the community of jazz artists who come for the camaraderie, spontaneity and sometimes to test and prove themselves. These events can be full of surprises, with different combinations of musicians on stage that might not normally happen at a planned event. Often important musical connections are made and all takes place in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
