That’s right, we’re here with a lovely shiny new website pulling together some of the most interesting jazz and improv gigs around Birmingham. Here’s a bit about us:
“Blam is a cooperative group of the most active of Birmingham’s younger generation of jazz musicians and is dedicated to advancing jazz and improvised music in the city. The 10 members of Blam were all previously involved in the now defunct Cobweb Collective, and are now launching this new group to further develop the creative scene in their home city.
As individual musicians, the members of Blam are all prominently involved in the performance of jazz locally, nationally and internationally and as a collective believe in the importance of a thriving music scene in their home city. Hosting sessions in 4 seperate venues and promoting up to (and sometimes more than) 10 gigs a month, Blam cover the whole spectrum of jazz, from mainstream swing to free jazz. Blam provides audiences and musicians with regular opportunities to listen to and interact with a diverse array of artists from Birmingham and beyond.
Blam isn’t only about promoting music, but also about creating music. There are currently plans to start a large ensemble and run composers sessions, as well as making some of the great music created in Birmingham available to everyone.
We are keen to collaborate with other musicians and collectives, so get in touch if you want to know more: firstname.lastname@example.org“
