Jam Sessions at Jazz Fest
February 23, 2011 8:18 PM   Subscribe

I'll finally be going to Jazz Fest in New Orleans this year. Does anyone know if there are open jam sessions around the city during the festival? I don't have any illusions about playing with famous folks, but it would be nice to get together with some other musicians and play jazz. (I'm a vocalist, if that makes any difference).

I have never heard of this kind of thing but a ton of events go on during Jazz Fest after hours so I guess there's a chance. Have you checked the threadhead forums? And closer to time the listings at offbeat.com might be useful.

Thanks, but I did post to the threadhead forums earlier without much success. I hadn't heard of offbeat.com, so I will check it out.

There is a Monday evening jam at the Hi Ho Lounge, but I think it is mostly bluegrass.
