AN informal group of musicians who started jamming together in Henley a year ago are still
AN informal group of musicians who started jamming together in Henley a year ago are still going strong — but have just announced a change of venue.
Since September last year the Henley Jammers have been meeting at the Salisbury Club in Queen Street on the first Wednesday of each month.
Founded by guitarist Steve Blackall and sax player Bryan McCrae, the idea is that all music genres and standards of players are welcome — including blues, funk, jazz, rock and indie.
New players are always welcome and the sessions are open to everyone, with a contribution of £5 to cover the hire of the hall. However, having started life as the Henley Jammers the group is about to become the Stoke Row Jammers — though it is not yet known if the name will in fact change.
The group maintains a public Facebook group.
Posting on Wednesday, Bryan McCrae said the group would now meet at Stoke Row village hall, adding: “It is still the first Wednesday of the month, starting around 7.30pm.”
In a subsequent post, Steve Blackall confirmed that the first session at the new venue would take place on Wednesday, October 5.
