Ivy Room Presents: Session Tuesday

Weekly pro level jam session, great show. Explorations into Jazz-Funk / Soul / Blues and more. Every Tuesday starting at 9pm at Ivy Room in Albany, CA.

Come hang with us every Tuesday night from 9pm to 1am when quality Bay Area musicians come together to celebrate live improvisation and bring you creative renditions of tunes from a variety of genres and decades including funk, jazz-funk, R&B and soul. Bring your instrument to play with the band, or come out to listen and have some drinks, dance, play pool, chill with your friends, or otherwise enjoy the friendly, laid-back vibe of this legendary neighborhood bar and live music venue. A backline is provided which includes microphones, PA, 4 piece drum kit, guitar amp, and bass amp. To join the session, talk to bassist Mike or another member of the house band. Guest musicians will be worked into the lineup after a house band set and featured vocalist sets start the night.

[06/25/19]   NO JAM THIS TUES 6/25
...due to a show at Ivy Room

Hi Friends!

The Session Tuesday Jam will be wrapping up at the end of July. Our last date will be Tues. July 30th, and we're going to make it a party! (*specific party deets to be determined- I'm open for input).

There will be no jam NEXT WEEK Tues 6/25 due to the jam being preempted by a show at Ivy Room.

I am forever grateful to all of you for your friendship and musical spirits, and for the opportunity to grow musically with you. I'm honored to have been able to host this event for its amazing 3-1/2 year run.

Many thanks to all the fantastic musicians who have done house band duty both on the regular and and in a pinch, to all the inspiring and unique jammers who have made the night so much fun, to Ivy Room for hosting this event since Jan 2016 shortly after they re-opened as a music venue, and to all you music fans who came out to support us week after week. We could not have done it without all of you.

There are many small factors that have added up to me not being able to sustain this event, and this decision was months in the making and this is where the chips fell. I'm sincerely bummed to let people down and I'll miss all the good times we have.

There are a number of fantastic jams in the Bay Area on Tues, please support them so they can continue on.

If anyone is interested in doing a regular event on Tues. night at Ivy Room please contact me and I'll put you in touch with the Ivy Room peeps and relay some technical info. There's already some interest in jam and non-jam events so any decision on what gets booked is up to the owners.

I'm looking forward to playing with and seeing y'all in other contexts. Let's keep in touch!

[05/13/19]   Hi folks, there will be NO JAM on 5/14 (tomorrow) due to another Ivy Room event.

[12/26/18]   Happy holidays all, and Merry Christmas for those celebrating today!

There's no Session Tuesday jam at Ivy Room tonight or next Tues. on New Years day. We'll see you on Jan 8th!

If you're looking to hang tonight drop by the Legionnaire in Oakland at Telegraph and West Grand.
