With Memorial Day just around the corner, H3O Jazz Trio will match all donations collected at this month’s Island City Jazz Jam. The goal is to raise funds to add one or more engraved bricks memorializing vets at the Winona Veterans Memorial Park. Website: www.americanlegionwinona.org/veterans-memorial-park/

Now in its second year, the Island City Jazz Jam is an Open Mic night … for jazz! Whether you play an instrument or sing, the Jazz Jam is a chance for anyone to sit in with a professional rhythm section. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to perform some of their favorite jazz standards.

Interested jammers can choose from a wide selection of jazz tunes. Players can pick music from Hal Leonard Real Books, bring their own, or ask the trio if they can play their favorite! Simply sign up on the clipboard and get ready to jam! Island City Jazz Jam is the place to be on the 3rd Sunday of each month. The event is free and open to everyone – young and not so young. And if you’re not quite ready to sit in, come and enjoy a great evening of jazz. Please contact the Island City Events Coordinator at events@islandcitybrew.com for more information.
