Registration


POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Jam Sessions are held on the third Sunday of the month at the Saddle and Spurs Saloon.

Please familiarize yourself with the Jam Policies listed below.  Thanks!

JAM POLICIES

We love our musicians. We want to promote your talents as much as we can, but hey

we only have so much stage space and time and our audiences and venues have

demands as well. Thus we offer the following policies to try and accommodate as

many folks as possible.


The LVBS generally hosts 2 open blues jams per month. The jams are hosted by local

Blues bands, booked by our Programming Trustees. The Host Band usually plays the

first set, for about 60 minutes. blues musicians are then invited up to jam, with their

band, or with the band on stage at the time.


There is a sign up sheet. Write down your name and instrument, and say hello to the

Jam Host. His name is Monk. Monk has been running jams for many years and he

does his best to make sure everyone gets to play within reason. Being rude to him will

not help your cause.

The Host Band will share their gear assuming it is treated with respect. If you want to

bring your amp, pedals, or whatever, please remember that changeovers need to be

fast and smooth.. the simpler the better. ie. Your guitar should be in tune Before you

get on stage.


Each artist can generally play 2-3 songs, but the Jam Host makes the call and reserves

the right to cancel the artist for any reason he sees fit. The LVBS will support the Jam

Host in all decisions made in this regard.


BOOKING HOST BANDS POLICY

Host bands are picked by our Jam Host in conjunction with our Programming Trustees

by considering a number of factors: 1) Current LVBS Band Membership 2) Known

Talent and Audience Draw 3) Haven’t Recently Played 4) Have a Full 5 Piece Band

preferably including keys.

Want to be a host? Well, first show up to a jam with your band and show us your stuff.

Second, be aware that jamming with unknown talent and/or playing potentially

unknown songs to you, is very different than playing your own band’s songs. Know

your keys, how to transpose them, and know how to take cues from musicians of

varying musical abilities. Think you got the stuff? Com on, then! Let’s jam
