Jazz Jam @ the MAC

Jazz Jam @ the MAC
Friday, August 30, 7:00-9:30pm
in the MAC’s Anne Braitmayer Webb Theater

$20 MAC Members, $25 Nonmembers
Free for participating musicians – donations accepted

Capacity: 55 people

Be part of the long tradition of the jazz jam session complete with participation from community musicians. Our house band – Matt Richard on piano, Dave Zinno on bass, and Gary Johnson on drums – will support the improvisers as they interpret many “jazz standards” in various style formats. Learn about the inner workings of a jam session as trombonist Phil Sanborn leads a question-and-answer session and explains how the songs are structured and how the “road map” for each selection helps the improvisers. Join us to listen in, or if you’re a musician, sign up to join us on stage!

If you’d like to join the Jazz Jam players on stage, please email with “Jazz Jam” in the subject line. Please include your name, phone number, and list how you want to participate (instrument, vocals, etc.). Band leader Phil Sanborn will contact all players before the event.
