Free Music Jam at the Rose Garden Park

The July jam will be held in the Rose Garden Park on Naglee Ave. at Garden Dr. (adjacent to San José Municipal Rose Garden). The park is just two blocks from our usual Hoover Middle School location. Free admission. (Note: We will not have our usual open-mike performances at this jam.)

If you'd like to participate in a Beginners’ Circle slow jam, please ask. For jams in the park we generally arrange them only on demand.

Bring a picnic if you like (barbeques are available in the park), and come to jam or just to listen. Come early and help us by reserving a table!

The August jam will also be at the Rose Garden Park, with free admission but no open-mike stage (see above). If you'd like to try a Beginners’ Circle slow jam while we're in the park, just ask and we'll try to organize one.

Bring a picnic if you like (barbeques are available in the park), and come to jam or just to listen. Come early and help us by reserving a table!
