JAZZ JAMS at The Front Porch

The CJS invites jazz musicians of all ages and levels to come jam at The Front Porch, 221 East Water St, at the corner of 3rd Street, off the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, on Friday, April 13th, from 7-9pm. The Charlottesville Jazz Society is now sponsoring the venue for these gatherings. Great atmosphere and plenty of space with acoustic piano, keyboard, and PA provided. Note that these jazz jams are FREE to all, to either participate or just watch.

This month's jazz jam will be Friday, April 13th. Jazz jams are every 2nd Friday of the month, 7 to 9 pm, from April onward. Please consider being a regular participant (student, adult, or mentor), maybe even sign up for the house band for future jams? Bring Real Books or charts of anything in particular you’d like to try, or send them to John Bittner via email, so he can distribute them to the house band ahead of time. We will collate these into the growing list of tunes. Eventually we'll send out a song list PDF of ideas ahead of time for everyone to consider practicing.
The Front Porch has a two-hour free parking stamp for the Water Street Parking garage. If you park there bring your parking ticket with you.

Contact John Bittner with any questions or ideas via email: (woodthrush@centurylink.net) or phone: 434-286-7709. You can also contact the Charlottesville Jazz Society at cvillejazz@gmail.com.
