The Dublin Castle's weekly open jam is hosted by local hard rock band Redwire.
Sign up is at 7.30pm sharp. It gets very busy so make sure you're in the queue in the back room ready to choose your slot.
Music starts at 8pm and goes on until about 11pm.
We put on a showcase band each week at 9pm. We're always looking for bands to showcase, so if you're in a band or know someone who is, get them to send us their music.
Our showcase band this week is SHARD, a progressive thrash metal 4-piece from Guildford. Can't wait to see what they do!
The open jam slots are 15 minutes each, which usually works out to 3 songs. You can play on your own, as a band, with a group of people you know, or even people you don't know. There's usually plenty of musicians eager to join in and have a go.
There will be amps, microphones and a full drumkit available to use, just bring your instruments and cables!
When it's very busy we sometimes ask at sign up time if people will give one of their 3 songs away to someone else, to give everyone a chance to play. But it's okay to say no if you want your full slot.
It's FREE ENTRY so come and enjoy the music, even if you're not playing.
