Impro Jam Series at Slate Arts

June 5 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Impro Jam series at Slate!

$5 suggested donation and BYOB!

Every first and third Wednesday of the month Slate Arts will present an exciting new series entitled Impro Jam curated by drummer, composer, and educator Adam Shead. Impro Jam is a new take on the traditional jazz jam session, concept provided by Amsterdam based Saxophonist Ada Rave. For each installment of Impro Jam there will one opening act followed by an open jam session focusing on creative Improvisation. Open to improvisers of all disciplines each performer will put their name into a hat, a giant die will be thrown, the number shown on the die will correspond to the number of names drawn from the hat. The names drawn from the hat will then commence to perform a short Improvisation. This process will repeat until all names are drawn. Impro Jam is an outlet for performers and listeners to cultivate community, artistic expression, and new ways of knowing Improvised performance practices. For booking requests contact Adam Shead at adamsheadmusic@gmail.com
