The Details
A jam tune selection list, including keys, is listed below. To keep things fresh, this year’s list does not include tunes that were played at 2023’s jam. Most of the  list is drawn from Bob Rawlins’ The Real Dixieland Book (Hal Leonard) and page numbers are listed for those.

  • Musicians should bring their own instruments (piano and drums are provided)
  • Pre-registered sit-ins should sign in at the door, and will be admitted free of charge. Free entry does not extend to family members and friends
  • Dave will call up the sit-ins to play, per the distributed set list. Please be ready to take the stage and play when it is your turn, and leave the stage promptly at the end of your assigned tunes
  • Walk-in jammers will also be admitted free of charge and will be invited to sit in if time allows
  • Priority will be given to those who pre-registered
  • If you have CDs of yourself that you’d like to sell, a designated table will be provided for that purpose.
