Jazz Fraternity Jam at the Thirsty Scholar at The Thirsty Scholar, Manchester, 22 May–8 October 2019, free entry - Visit now

Under one of the railway arches near oxford road station sits The Thirsty Scholar. This pub within a hole in the wall hosts regular gigs however, each Wednesday the floor is opened to the Fraternity Jazz Jam. The night is a welcoming and relaxed Jam hosted by Manchester based musicians.

Lead by a small band or a soloist the jams are usually centred around standards and the more traditional jazz styles. It’s a very welcoming environment and manages to escape the pressure associated with some jam nights. Unlike other jams it attracts a real mix of musicians, from well established artists on their night off to students fresh out of music college and everybody in between. This is definitely one of the more chilled nights. If you’re a player whose keen to cut your teeth in jams but hesitant to do so, let yourself be coaxed onto the stage by one of the cordial hosts.
