The Tennessee Concerts Sponsored Play It Again Jam. The monthly/weekly jam began in 2006, when Nashville guitarist C.J. Dubuisson and drummer Gary Allen (formally of the Charlie Daniels Band) started the musicians jam at a studio, near the Nashville Fairgrounds (2006-2007). Starting in 2008, Gary, along with Pat Adams from this Tennessee Concerts website, took the jam to the three different small music venues (bars) in Nashville from 2008-2011. These places included Windows Off The Cumberland, The Elysian Inn and JC's Bullseyes Lounge. Hundreds of musicians came from multiple states play at the jam. We have documented these jams in pictures & videos. Will will be featuring a different "Throwback Jam" every month. Check back monthly!
