Joe Henderson Lab

SFJAZZ announces our new community jam session series, SFJAM! These free monthly open jam sessions in the Joe Henderson Lab provide a space for all Bay Area musicians to come together and perform in an inclusive, multigenerational setting. Each jam session features a musical director and curated repertoire. We invite musicians of all levels and ages to join each session. Space is limited, so musicians, please sign up here or by clicking the button below: 


Non-performing patrons are also invited to attend and watch each session. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. No reservations or tickets are needed to attend — just show up!

The SFJAM program is made possible through the generosity of Jimmy Hormel, Amy and Glenn Oclassen, Jr.
