Jammers Welcome!

One of the objectives of the Hobart Blues Club is to encourage and promote blues players at all levels. We encourage all aspiring performers to get up and jam in our jam session. This is usually the second of three sets and starts round 8:30 pm. Individuals might be able to jam with others, on their own, or with members of the feature band – it depends on what’s happening on the night. There is usually a backline and the HBC PA is standard. Guitarists might consider bringing their favourite amps as insurance against there not being enough amps in the backline.

Due to the popularity of the jam session we can usually offer the chance to perform two or three numbers. If you want to jam you must let our jam organiser know in advance, preferably before the monthly gig, but definitely at the beginning of the evening, before 7:30 pm. If we dont know you want to jam before the jam session starts we may not be able to fit you in. Contact Conrad through the website email for more information or to advise you would like to jam. Remember, it’s a Blues club, so the Blues genre is what we like to hear.
