El Farol Restaurant
808 Canyon Road
The Canyon Road Blues Jam
Tuesdays at 8:30 to Midnight
Apparently in its 7th year
This is from a Santa Fe promotional website:
"The Canyon Road Band is:
TIHO DIMITROV - guitar and vocals, Winner of NMMA 2012 Best Blues award & The Winner of the New Mexico Ernie Ball blues guitar competition.
BRANT LEEPER - keyboard and vocals,
MIKE CHAVEZ - drums,
TONE FORREST - bass and emcee...
Any musician who can play blues, R&B and rock 'n' roll at a professional level is welcome to sign up and join in..."
And from another site:
"Almost every Musician is a Pro or close to it . If you are new to town and want to play on stage... Well you got to pay your dues , Go up there and Just watch for a few shows get a feel for the Jam . Introduce yourself to Tone, or Tiho let them know you play but don't ask to play . They will call you up eventually ."
I've never been; I don't know if this stuff is standard jam protocol or not; make of it what you will.
