What is a jam session?

Here’s what Wikipedia has to say:

“A jam session is a relatively informal musical event, process, or activity where musicians, typically instrumentalists, play improvised solos and vamp on tunes, songs and chord progressions. To “jam” is to improvise music without extensive preparation or predefined arrangements, except for when the group is playing well-known jazz standards or covers of existing popular songs. Original jam sessions, also ‘free flow sessions’, are often used by musicians to develop new material (music) and find suitable arrangements. Both styles can be used simply as a social gathering and communal practice session. Jam sessions may be based upon existing songs or forms, may be loosely based on an agreed chord progression or chart suggested by one participant, or may be wholly improvisational.”

Triassic Parq
Jun 29 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Triassic Parq

A blockbuster musical about dinosaurs

By Bryce Norbitz, Marshall Pailet and Steve Wargo

Religion, identity, sex…and raptors! Triassic Parq is a raucous retelling of that famous dinosaur-themed film, this time seen from the dinos’ point of view. Chaos is unleashed upon the not-so-prehistoric world when one dinosaur in a clan of females spontaneously turns male. The mutation spawns a chain reaction of identity crises, forcing the dinosaurs to question the very facts of life they’ve always held as truth. An uproariously funny musical meditation on faith, science, and love. ​Triassic Parq is brought to you by See ‘Em On Stage, A Production Company, the talented team that presented Evil Dead The Musical, Lizzie, and Musical of the Living Dead.
