JAZZ JAMS at The Front Porch

Held in the main room downstairs.

The CJS invites jazz musicians of all ages and levels to come jam at The Front Porch221 East Water St, at the corner of 3rd Street, off the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, every second Friday of the month, from 7-9pm.  This is a continuation of the jazz jam for students and adults, held at C’ville Coffee at the end of last year.  The Charlottesville Jazz Society will now sponsor the venue for these gatherings.  Great atmosphere and plenty of space with acoustic piano, keyboard, and PA provided. Note that these jazz jams are FREE to all, to either participate or just watch.

Please consider being a regular participant (student, adult, or mentor), maybe even sign up for the house band for future jams?  Bring Real Books or charts of anything in particular you’d like to try, or send them to John Bittner via email, so he can distribute them to the house band ahead of time.  We will collate these into the growing list of tunes that was started from the last two jams at C’ville Coffee.   Eventually we’ll send out a song list PDF of ideas ahead of time for everyone to consider practicing.

Contact John Bittner with any questions or ideas via email: (woodthrush@centurylink.net) or phone: 434-286-7709.  You can also contact the Charlottesville Jazz Society at cvillejazz@gmail.com.
