Let’s Start a Jam Band

June 1, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Friday, repeating until June 8, 2018


Whether you want to play a wide assortment of djembes and hand drums, or are willing to bring your own guitar, bass, woodwind, brass or other string instrument, please register and join local songwriter, professional drummer and long-time trombonist Tim Kane for a fun 8-week musical journey held most every Friday night from 6-7 pm starting March 30 at Hitchcock Free Academy in Brimfield.

The group will focus on learning cover songs members want to jam to while also creating our own compositions and learning songs you composed. Members will be invited to perform all of these selections at Hitchcock Academy’s International Music Day on June 21.

We imagine bluegrass, folk and rock music will be the most in demand by participants, but remain open to exploring all genres, including possibly blending pop with world beats, for example.

Drums, percussion, amplifier, electric guitar, vocal mic and keyboard are all provided by the instructor, (and feel free to bring your own gear). Handout copies of music charts and chord progression notes highly encouraged.

– Blending diverse rhythmic and musical styles into the mainstream scene with good taste has been Tim Kane’s forte as a Massachusetts-based drummer, percussionist and music educator for more than 25 years. Learn more about Tim and his upcoming schedule at and on Facebook at
