We have our first jam session of the school year scheduled for Oct. 14!
The Roosevelt Jazz program will once again hold monthly jam sessions at the Stone Way Cafe. These sessions, which are held on the second Wednesday of the month, are a chance for the musicians to try playing in a combo and soloing in a supportive club setting. Musicians from all four groups are welcome. They should bring their instruments (except for rhythm section) and their Real Books. People will rotate in and out, depending upon who shows up on a given night. Michael Van Bebber is coordinating the session.
This year, jam sessions will have a new twist with regular guest mentor band, The Cantaloupes. Our first gathering will start on October 14 with The Cantaloupes playing from 6:30 to 7:30 followed by the jam session from 7:30 to 9:30.
Additionally the Cantaloupes will be playing on Oct 28th at 7:30. RHS students are welcome to play too.
We plan on continuing having twice monthly sessions on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays. Please come on out!
