History of the Riverside Jam

The first Riverside Jam was held in 2000 in Westport CT. Since then, this annual event has traveled to Chicago, Minneapolis, and several cities in between. Traditionally, each year is hosted by a different member of the gang.

The first Jam was a mini-reunion of a bunch of musicians who had played together in Chicago, along with some local friends, totalling 8 players. Through word of mouth and our relationship with Guitarnoise.com, each year brings new musicians. Our biggest year had over 50 participants at 4 events.

Here is a link that tells even more about the first Jam.
