What are JAZZ JAMS?

If you are musician or vocalist please feel free to join us! The San Juan Jazz Society hosts jazz jam every other Wednesday beginning January 15, 7pm - 9pm. Our Jazz Jams are open to all ages and anyone who is willing to do Jazz Jam Homework (Below).

Located at the Farmington Civic Center for the winter hours.  Beginning October 9, 2019 and repeating every other week!

A set list will be made to help those who are practicing and learning new standards. They have about a week to practice the music, then come Wednesday night and jam! 

We appreciate all your hard work!
