• Sign up and create a profile for the venue
  • Choose a day for your jam. You may choose a genre, or you might let the musicians decide. Most venues only have one or two days a week for live music and other attractions (karaoke, comedy, etc.) the other days. It is not recommended that you mix two types of music in one day (example: one set of blues, one set of reggae), but customize to your own situation. Every situation is unique and venue owners must know their customers.
  • Decide how much equipment you will provide. You need to provide power outlets, possibly with power strips. You may provide a “backline” (drums, bass amp, and a PA). PA is short for Public Address system which is the microphones, mixer and speakers for the vocals and horns. Most jammers will have their own equipment, but you can provide as much as you are willing.
  • Schedule sets with enough time between for players to load in/out, and set up.
  • In many traditional jams, venue owners pay a house band to play a set, then be available to fill in the instruments that the jammers do not fill. Hopefully, JammingOut.com will fill all of the positions.
  • You may want to hire a Jam Master of Ceremonies (Jam MC) to coordinate the bands and even lead the less experienced musicians. Reviewing the set on JammingOut.com allows you to assess the need for a Jam MC or house band, especially once you get to know the skill levels of the jammers.
