Louis Armstrong Legacy Monthly Jazz Jams

Our Louis Armstrong Legacy Monthly Jazz Jams run all year long, and are open to professional jazz musicians, graduate students studying Jazz, music educators and serious hobbyists. Jazz Jams are a fun way to hone your skills, and jam each month with your peers. All are welcome, regardless of instrument (vocalists, too!). Our Steinway baby grand and drum kit are available at each Jam. House Band and Jam Sessions are led by Carol Sudhalter, with Joe Vincent Tranchina, Scott Neumann and Eric Lemon. Don't play, but love Jazz? Come listen! 

This program is supported in part by a grant from The Louis Armstrong Educational Foundation, Inc.

COVID Safety Policy:

ALL INDIVIDUALS: In adherence with Mayor De Blasio’s Covid policy for performance venues, Flushing Town Hall will require all visitors, performers, and staff to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19. A form of identification that matches the proof of vaccine is required, and masks must be worn at all times. For more details on Flushing Town Hall’s general Covid-safety measures and vaccine requirements, please visit: https://www.flushingtownhall.org/covid-safety.

PARTICIPATING MUSICIANS: Flushing Town Hall is pleased to welcome back musicians to perform in-person at our monthly Jazz Jam. Musicians must bring their mask, vaccination card, I.D., in addition to their usual gear (FTH provides piano and drum kit). Noncompliant musicians will be turned away. Musicians can also bring their own microphones, although it is not required as mics will be sanitized after each performance. After you present your vaccination card and I.D. at the front desk, head-up to the theater, and sign-in to perform. Our house band leader, Carol Sudhalter, will call musicians up on stage to perform in the order of the sign-up sheet.  There is no pre-registration at this time. You must keep your mask on, both in the building and while performing, unless you are performing on a wind instrument.  Social distancing will be in place in the theater and on-stage throughout the jam. Thank you for respecting the safety protocols, your fellow artists, and audience.
