Nashville's longest running rock & roll jam
by Kenny Utterback for the Music City Examiner
The Musicians Jam, Nashville's longest running rock and
roll jam, went on hiatus for almost a year, starting at the
end of 2007.

For a short period, the jam regulars were topping the bill
for Music City Nights, while it was showcasing at the old
Mocambo Club location on 4th Avenue. When the venue
took a sharp turn toward mostly presenting upcoming
country music artists, the rock and roll jam didn't seem
like a good fit anymore, to the jam's promoters. So, the
search resumed for a better match.

It now appears that a great little club on 2nd Avenue
South called Windows Off The Cumberland, which
already deals in rock and roll, has partnered with the  
Jam promotional team to host the jam two nights a
month (the old 'Jam' format) starting in March. Jams have
already been held at the club, in December and January,
with another scheduled on Sunday, February 22nd.
Photos and videos of these sessions can be seen on the
Tennessee Concerts website. To learn more about the
history of the jam, or to view the latest videos and
