The Madison Jazz Jam is proud to participate in the 2019 Isthmus Jazz Festival with a special performance by veteran Milwaukee vocalist, Adekola Adedapo, on June 16. Adekola will open this week’s jam session with a full set of classic American songs, backed by local luminaries Ken Hoffman (ts), Johannes Wallmann (pno), John Schaffer (bs), and Joey B. Banks (dr). We’ll follow Adekola’s performance with two sets of our regular jam session. The jam takes place at North Street Cabaret, 610 North Street, Madison, from 4:00 to 7:00pm. As always, there is no cover.

The Madison Jazz Jam is open to musicians of all ages who would like to learn from the best players in the area. We are an educational jam session – low key and supportive – founded to promote improvised music while supporting the many talented players who enrich our lives in Madison. Whether you are an experienced player or a beginner, you will find a welcoming community and wonderful opportunities to celebrate improvised music at MJJ.

We extend a special invitation to vocalists to come out for Adekola’s set and to stick around to sing with the band afterward. If you are vocalist, or if you know any vocalists who’d like make some music with us, please spread the word and join us on June 16!
