Blues Jams:
Tuesdays 8pm
Wednesdays 8pm
Thursdays 8pm
Sundays 5pm

I was on business and enjoyed 3 different nights sitting in. Doc Williamson runs things nicely (Piano & Vocals) and there will be a decent support group. It was certainly harp friendly but while the Fender Excelsior as the harp amp option was capable for the stage it was completely lost in the room (micing it not really an option). I plugged a 57 straight to the PA, it worked. This would be a perfect pedal-PA venue -your own amp isn't the plan. The various players sitting in were very good.
