Blues lovers should make sure to clear their Sunday calendars and head to Newhall for the “Best Blues jam/party west of the Mississippi”
The Sunday Pro Blues Jam is held on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of every month at the American Legion Post 507 located behind the Old Town Newhall Library. The jam features professional Blues musicians from around Santa Clarita, as well as guest musicians and jammers who want to sit in.
The weekly concert is held by the Santa Clarita Valley Blues Society, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to “preserve and promote the Blues music art form.” The Blues Society gives serious Blues musicians a chance to get their name out around the valley and an opportunity to perform at the weekly jams. This is the fifth straight year that the society has held the weekly Sunday jams.
The Sunday Pro Blues Jam is a great place to watch and listen to the musical talent in the Santa Clarita Valley, and is an event that can be enjoyed by any age crowd. For music lovers, it is an inexpensive way to enjoy some very entertaining live music.
The jam runs from 5 to 9 pm with a $5-door charge, the American Legion also has food for the event and each customer’s first drink is free.
