The Jam

The Jam - every Tuesday during term, 8.30pm 'til late

Jazz is all around you, everyday, everywhere, all the time. Jazz is freedom of expression - no rules. Everyone wants to express themselves, some people just don't know how. Every Tuesday JazzSoc plays host to the new wave: musicality with no protocol.

'There is no such thing as a wrong note.' - Art Tatum

So what is the jam? I can tell you that it happens every Tuesday in the function room of Bar Copa. I can tell you that it starts at 8.30pm. I can tell you that anyone can come. I can't tell you what it is, because I don't know. Nobody knows until it happens. There are no rules. The jam is different every week, because jazz changes every second.

'Master your instrument, master the music, and then forget all that **** and just play.' - Charlie Parker

Entrance to the jam is 4, or 2 for students. JazzSoc members get in free. Bring your horn, bring your sticks, bring your voice. We want to hear your music, however good or bad you are - there is no standard to meet.

'Don't fear mistakes, there are none.' - Miles Davis
