About Tuesday Night Jam Sessions
The Yardbird Suite is proud to present local talent and collaborative opportunities every Tuesday evening during the season at the weekly jam sessions. From 8:00pm-9:00pm, an all-star Edmontonian band takes the stage to perform a set of music ranging from original compositions to jazz classics. Then the stage clears for a jam session, wherein musicians are encouraged to take to the stage and collaborate with one another in a jam session format.
Admission for jam sessions is just $10.00 for audience members, and $5.00 for musicians who show up to jam (there is an ATM on site) doors open at 7:30pm. If you’re a musician looking to jam, remember to bring your instrument!
