Welcome a new house band to the Saturday Afternoon Jazz Jam at Pressed


The Saturday Afternoon Jazz Jam at Pressed is starting into it’s 9th month of existence, and after 8 months of running it with Craig Pedersen and David Pontello as the house band, it’s time to pass the torch! Starting this Saturday, Karen Rauh and company will be hosting the jam. Karen has been a part of the house band a few times in the past but now she’s taking it over for the next little while. Hooray! Let’s all wish Karen, Adrian, Mark and Allyson a warm welcome.

If you are an Ottawa-based jazz musician (or are visiting from out of town) please check out the jam this Saturday from 2pm to 5pm. Pressed is at 750 Gladstone Avenue and the cover is a sliding scale of $5 to $15. It’s open to players at every level so don’t be shy if it’s your first time!

If you’re still in doubt, just look at how much fun we’ve had at past jams:
