Is This Jazz? Jam

May 24, 2017 @ 9:00 pm – May 25, 2017 @ 1:00 am
AS220 Main Stage

Providence, RI 02903

Join us again at AS220 on May 24th for another ITJ jam! Last time we gathered for such an occasion we had some killer musicians come through, a great audience, and plenty of ripping music played throughout the night. This will be no different.

We will have a house band made up of a quartet of local players – Ben Shaw on sax, Nick Sanfillipo on keys, Joe Grilli on bass, and Ben Dicke on drums – who will lay the foundation for others to come up on stage to play tunes and improvise. Tunes will be selected from a collection called “The RI Book” which is an assortment of compositions kindly lent to us by a variety of local artists who have performed on the series. Feel free to bring your own original lead sheets and we will be sure to include them in the festivities, and if you’d like will add them to the book for future jams. If you are bringing a tune be sure to include C, Bb, and Eb copies. It is an all ages open jam so bring your axe, your charts, and of course, your chops.

Admission is only $5 which will go directly to supporting the house band. Jam kicks at 9:30pm and goes until we stop. Come on by
