The Newtown Jazz Jam is a jam session in Wellington based on the principals of making great music and having great hangs.

The session takes place at the Newtown Community Center theatre. Entry to the session is koha: pay what you think it’s worth, or what you can afford. It’s also BYO – so bring your own drinks and/or food and a little cash!

Before each session we’ll throw out a few standard tunes that’ll be played that night… at some point! This means we can avoid the pitfalls of no-one knowing what to play next, or no-one knowing the same songs. Nice huh? (If you want to play something else though, just call a tune!)

The session runs 8-10pm EVERY MONDAY NIGHT! This includes setting up and packing down, so be on time, and even better come early and stay late to help us out!

The Newtown Jazz Jam is kindly sponsored by Brad Teal at Vanguard Orchestral – Brass and Wind Instruments and Repairs. Check out his amazing store!
