Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, after the programmed gigs have finished, there is even more fantastic music to enjoy. After a wonderful first year in 2017, the Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival Jam Sessions are back! A swinging house band led by trumpeter Nick Malcolm will kick off with a short set at 10.30pm, after which experienced musicians and vocalists are most welcome to come and sit in. The jam takes place directly opposite the Colston Hall main entrance at Bambalan, serving cocktails, wine and craft beers. Expect to hear some wonderful music in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, from top musicians coming to kick back after their gigs.
