HOT JAZZ JAM Tuesdays is BACK at ANAF 298!

HOT JAZZ JAM Tuesdays is hosted by rotating jazz ensembles playing 1920s vintage jazz  to early swing era in the spirit of New Orleans hot jazz for dancers & jazz lovers alike. The later set jam sessions are open to musical guests & moderated by the band-lead of the night.

Your participation directly supports performing musicians and provides a dynamic environment to hone their craft by playing with other musicians and dancers. When possible, we are open to guest musicians for a full hot jazz jam session set.

Our events are created for musicians, dancers, and jazz lovers alike. Please spread the word and join us for an evening of live music, jamming, dancing, and fun!
