Just Jamming FREE Improv Sessions
JUST JAMMING Starts 24 September - New FREE Monthly Session: Listen, Play, Sing and Jam
Just Jamming invites musicians and music lovers to come together to: listen, play, sing and jam. It’s for people who want to play for others, meet and play with other musicians and be experimental with their practice. With direction from the founder of Bitches Be Brewin, a regular Jazz improv night held at Jam Café, this new initiative is specifically for people aged 60 and above, but also welcomes collaborations between younger musicians and audiences.
Just Jamming takes place at The Embankment using the room that was Jesse Boot’s old office. The Embankment is the city side of Trent Bridge: Arkwright Street, Nottingham, NG2 2GR.
Just Jamming happens on the last Tuesday of each month. Launching on Tuesday 24 September, 7 – 10pm, Just Jamming has an eclectic mix of musicians already lined-up. Musicians can bring along their instruments and sign up on the night, but there's no obligation to play. It's a space for music lovers and musicians to come together to: listen, play, sing and jam.
