Blues Jam Sessions

The Fat Tuesday Blues Jam is made up of a growing community of serious hobbyist musicians and one simple concept: musical camaraderie. Our aim is to make jamming fun again by providing you with everything you need to just focus on playing:

  • A state-of-the-art, professional performance spaceGear: guitar and bass amps, drums, a piano and a professional PA system (just bring your instrument*);
  • A house band comprised of patient, supportive and experienced professional musicians;
  • A regular schedule: jams are held monthly; and
  • A supportive environment w/no attitudes or egos allowed - just great players, cool tunes, and a fun place to hang out. 

House Band

Our house band is a group of professional musicians from the North Shore who regularly perform together. Check them out on YouTube performing "What Makes You Think I'd Want Your Man" and "Walkin' After Midnight."

Renee Dupuis – Piano and Vocals
Joe Cardoza – Bass and Vocals
Dennis Monagle – Drums
