(Bring a blanket or festival chair. We will have some chairs on hand.)
The Saturday afternoon jazz jam is one of the most popular events at JazzFest for players and audience members alike. Nothing more completely embodies the traditional nature of jazz than players getting together and playing just for the fun of it, trying out their chops, and seeing how they make it in an authentic live setting.
Whether you’re a high-school student or a seasoned veteran, you are welcome to come out and participate. A rhythm section will be on hand, and we’re giving you the chance to try out those tunes you’ve been working on in the basement!
And who knows, some years we get drop-ins from visiting JazzFest performers, resulting in some exciting combinations of visiting and local players having some fun with the music!
Bring your own charts, or play by ear.
