The Blue Man, Brighton Jam Session night was cool. About 30 people in a basement! Half of them with percussion & tribal drums...
I arrived after 9 and was lucky to find a good parking space! The room had a hippy air of Chill with guitars and vinyl records fixed to the ceiling, it was heaving with a host band playing funky riffs that everyone could groove to.
Pick up an instrument and play along... some plugged in, others not. A good opportunity to chillout & find your own rhythm. I did a couple of jams around songs that have a simple arrangement like G G Em Em C D repeat... which is incidentally Stand by me (the vocalist soon cottoned on and we were jamming a funky uptempo version).
The 2nd jam I did was La Bamba C/ F/ G/ G7/ which allows you to throw in 'twist and shout' with audience joining in on backing vox. Great Riff based funky evening!!
Check it out once a month! @bluemanbrighton
