Sunday Afternoon 4-7ish at Johnny D's- in Somerville/Davis Sq. Boston's longest running jam; well managed, sound engineer. Good scene.
Monday Nights 9:30 - 12 at the Skellig in Waltham on Moody St.- more like an extended band practice- good group of musicians (regulars) who are unafraid of playing loud;
2nd Tuesday of the month (but check/call)7-9Pm- Winchester community music school on Highland- very civilized, well run, no booze- everybody listens- nice group.

I walked into "Hot Shotz" in Leominster last Sunday for the first time. Very friendly folks and Steve the harmonica player was very nice and will let you use his bassman LTD amp and pedal set-up , just bring a mic and harps. I had to wait until some of the regular folks got up and played but, when I did I felt welcome. Had a great time and got some good feedback from Steve and the other harp players. Acton, has a Thursday night jam at the "Open Table". Mostly guitar and horn folks but some harp players show up. No, problems with newcomers there that I ever saw. It's been 20 years since I went to Johnny D's jam but, gotta believe that it's still pretty low key cool for folks just getting their harp licks together.

Have to cross Johnny D's off the list, the last Blues jam will be next week, Dec 27th. They are supposed to move the jam to a new place, stay tuned.

PrimeTime Pub on Thursday's has moved to The Paddock Lounge in Leominster on Wednesday's (8-11). House band "Them Changes" very accomodating to all levels.
Acton Open Table Jam closed and moved to the "Village Works" West Acton, MA on Wednesday's 8-11 (shut for the summer but, back in the fall 2016).
Will have to check out the Muddy Waters jam in Haverhill.

I live in the Manchester, NH area (about an hour north of Boston) and there is a good blues jam scene. We have a lot of Massachusetts musicians who make the drive up.

Thursday night- Auburn Pitts (I've never been, but people say it's fun. From what I can gather it is a variety of blues, rock, and some country depending on who shows up.)

Sundays, 3-7. Village Trestle. Goffstown, NH (20 mins west of Manchester). Well organized, with Wan-tu Blues Band.

Sundays, 8-12ish. Strange Brew Tavern. Manchester, NH. Extremely friendly, well run by Howard Randall.

Hope to see you guys up here!
