Come LISTEN! Come PLAY!
We started this Jazz Jam at the Lilypad in October 2014. Since that time this event has steadily developed into a vibrant and convivial scene, welcoming to all lovers of this great American Art-form. There is a special feeling of openness and generosity at this Jam Session: creativity thrives in a challenging and supportive atmosphere; this beautiful listening room and the excellent people who fill it every other Sunday provide just such an environment. Come on down and be a part of it!
Don’t miss the short opening set at 9PM with...
