Just a quick note: The house band for the 9/25 jam will consist of local greats Ken Hoffman (ts), Dave Stoler (pno), John Schaffer (bs), and Rodrigo Villanueva (dr). Things will swing. See you soon!
Welcome to Madison Jazz Jam! Our performances are free and open to the public, donations accepted. Join us if you an aspiring jazz musician, or a fan interested in learning and listening to jazz. The Schedule page lists dates, featured tunes, and house band members. The jam is always the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month.
You may use our drums, keyboard, and upright bass. With our PA we can accommodate a vocalist, flute, or violin. We do not have a guitar amp, guitarists should bring their own. It’s best to bring any portable gear you need.
We provide music stands, and we keep several Real Books on hand for jammers to use each week. More questions? Please see the links above or scope out the jam in person. Come talk to us, we’re friendly!
