    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
