On a business trip to Tampa in early 2006 I came across a bi-weekly jam right near Busch Gardens. The group is run well and plays a broad range of music. The jam is at a fixed location on the fourth Tuesday and changes locations on the second Tuesday. Details can be found on this page, which the organizer Rick Ferriss (+1-813-850-8168) keeps up to date.

From Rick's website
General info about the jam:

  • A regular get-together to play, sing & enjoy acoustic music in the Tampa area.
  • Second Tuesday of the month at various locations (usually starts at 7:00, goes till 9:30/10:00).
  • Fourth Tuesday of the month, 7 - 9 pm, at Boba House, near USF.
All songs welcome (covers & originals) :
folk, blues, country, jazz, R&B, Americana, alternative, reggae, rock, hip-hop, etc, etc, etc
All quieter instruments welcome :
  • Acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, violin, flute, hand drums, singers, etc
  • Low volume electric bass & keyboards
  • We want to enjoy singing & playing together without hassling with a P.A.
We sit more-or-less in a circle, and take turns leading songs:
  • Everyone gets an equal chance to lead songs (they can pass if they want)
  • Everyone can play and/or sing along (they can pass if they want)
  • Singers who don't play an instrument are welcome to lead songs that some instrumentalists know
No charge (if we're at a business, please support our host by buying something; if we're at someone's house, bring some food &/or drink if you'd like)
Come anytime; leave anytime.
