The first hour of our Jazz Show & Jam is a concert featuring a host band which varies each week. It includes some of the finest musicians from the area and often featuring great players from NYC and beyond. After the first hour, we open it up to the jammers who get the opportunity to sit in and hone their skills, trading licks with some of the finest players in the area. Some of the best jazz can be heard here any Tuesday night! Come watch or play!!
