Jazz Jam at the MAC

Come see an authentic New Orleans-style jam session at the MAC with some of the finest jazz musicians in the greater Boston/Providence region as we invite improvisers of all levels to join in the fun. Jazz musicians from high school age on up are encouraged to “sit in” and enjoy the fertile meeting place and proving ground for both established soloists and the younger jazz musicians.  Those interested in “jamming” with the house band should contact the MAC at artweek@marionartcenter.org or call 508-538-1240.

Audience members who aren’t performing will get to watch the jam session take off as the musicians play well-loved jazz songs and melodies, and there will be time for Q & A with the band members. The master of ceremonies for this event is jazz trombonist Phil Sanborn. Mr. Sanborn is the Director of Instrumental Music at Tabor Academy, leads the New Bedford Symphony Seaside Swing Band, and is the founder and leader of the Buzzards Bay Music Fest Swing Band.
