Universal Jazz Advocates & Mentors Society Club Nights (U-JAM) are held monthly to give novice & experienced singers alike an opportunity to sing with our house band and learn more about a particular artist or composer. Instrumentalists are more than welcome...bring your charts! All ages are welcome. Mentors offer mini-presentations, and they will perform! Each month there is a theme and while the theme is encouraged, you are welcome to bring any jazz standards. To learn more or to sign up, please contact Kim Greenwood at ujamsevents@gmail.com.
