Jam Etiquette

  • Be polite, welcoming, and friendly.
  • Put your instrument cases off to the side and out the way.
  • Be kind to beginners and new jammers – it takes courage to join in and play along!
  • Please minimize noodling around between tunes.
  • Step out of the circle to tune your instrument or chat with someone.
  • Have fun!


The jam is free, but please make a purchase at the Dovetail Cafe!
