As you may be able to tell from the set of photos in this blog entry, the people who attend JAM night are fun to be around. This is an open environment, free to listen, walk around, have fun with everyone. This venue is not so unique given the history of music, however very unique for today just because of the open atmosphere, the vibe. Artist will go up and play, and it might strike a nerve in another artist to go up and join them. They surprise each other with their individual quality, they smile, laugh, and radiate the room for us.
Now realize, these people do not necessarily interact with each other on a daily basis nor for the most part practice doing this as a team or group. Many only see each other when they come here to JAM. These are artists that know their trade and are very capable of working together, and enjoy just that.
I hope you enjoy the photos, and "see" what I see, which is their internal voice, their greatness, which is individualistic and within all of them . . .
Matt Heckler was first up this evening, opening us up with an unprecedented option to give us seven songs.
