The Writers’ Guild is a jazz composers’ collective featuring five of Edmonton’s finest creative minds. The band uses the canvas of a traditional jazz quintet, blending musical influences old and new as they continually hone their craft into exciting, vital new music. Their debut album “Based on a True Story” (Chronograph Records) reached #1 on the Canadian Jazz Charts, and was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award. As these composers comment, collaborate, and create each other’s music in realtime, the Writers’ Guild makes ink on paper fly.
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!
