Friday Jam Sessions
The Fraser Valley Blues Society holds monthly Friday evening Jam sessions with NO COVER starting at 7:30 pm (doors open @ 7:00) at the Eagles Hall, 33868 Essendene Ave., Abbotsford (beside Paliotti’s). Host is James Thorhaug & Friends. Note: Cash Only Venue
Join us for live music, good times, dancing and to get your groove on. Hosting band will play first set then musicians who have signed up will have an opportunity to play with the band (sign up before or at the event) or other musicians who share common song choices.
Provided is a drum kit, amps, monitors, mics and PA, most times a keyboard or organ. You bring your own instrument (except drums of course – but do bring your own sticks).
Audience is welcome and necessary, bring friends and family too. The large wooden dance floor is generally packed and there for your dancing pleasure.
Shouldn’t need rules but guidelines are helpful. Here’s some great ones:
Be sure to read pages 2 (vocalists) & page 3 (guitars).
