Monday: Blues Jam with the Blues Defenders at The Tradewinds, Cotati
Wednesday: Redwood City Blues Jam

Many, many more in the S.F. Bay Area - I'll try to add some here soon, but for general info about goings on in the greater S.F. Bay Area, in terms of blues shows and jams, there is an EXCELLENT RESOURCE at Jack's Blues Clues (You MIGHT have to join this group to see the calendar but it is worth it.)

I didn't see any mention of this here, but the Grand Dell is closed:




Adam - weren't you guys planning another seminar here?

Closing of the Grand Dell is very sad. I hope Aki finds another venue to host a jam at. He did a great job hosting and is a fabulous player and person. Anyone that has met him knows this.

Blues Jam at Armandos in martinez every second and fourth monday of the month, sign up starts at 6:30 pm. Alot of very good players down here.


Blues jam at Chris's Club in Vallejo every monday starting at 7. This is an okay blues jam i think it should be called an R&B jam. The house band plays for like an hour when it starts. Bring your own gear as the pa sucks!
