Jam on Every Second Saturday! at BOMA

Jazz and Eggs every Second Saturday of the Month!

The jam, an on-going jazz tradition that started here over a century ago on the East side of Columbus is staying alive and well and true to its origin, thanks to a core flame of musicians and enthusiasts. About a decade ago the Jazz and Eggs series of Saturday jams started at the Marble Gang, a roucous wonderful and intimate bar that was perfect. When that stopped, there were a number of attempts to revive it in different venues. But none seemed to have what it took and they failed.

After many we may have found a home for Jazz and Eggs! Our first two jams were great, well accepted by the puiblic and the BOMA management agreed that it was just the kind of attraction they had hoped for.

Starting with the next

Jazz and Eggs at BOMA,

Here is a 2 minute -long slide/video record ( along with a poor audio track) of our last jam on Saturday March 10, 07. Click on the arrow to start.

The crowd enthusiasm and quality of music were outstanding. Nearly 50 musicians came to the jam and many were brought up to the stage for solos, including the legendary Marcus Belgrave in town for an appearance with the Columbus Symphony. The ever-changing house bands led Gene Walker and To
m Carrol, featured searing solos by Columbus' finest jazz players uncluding Terry and Linda Dactyl, Joe Yancey, the brothers Masters, Wes "Warm Daddy" Anderson, Bobby Floyd, Roger Hines, Debra Tucker, among many more.
