Fancy more musical exposure? Meet & Jam offers you a great opportunity to connect with other musicians, collaborate on stage, and maybe even win some amazing prizes, including a chance to play at the legendary The 100 Club in London.
New website Meet & Jam is a great way to connect with other musicians online, but of course nothing beats playing music live. That's why, to keep things rooted in the REAL world, they also organize their regular Meet & Jam Nights. They're buzzing, friendly events where incredible local musicians come together to jam on some classic tunes.
Whether you seek musical exposure, the chance to meet other great musicians or you simply want to be involved with a great music scene, these are the nights for you. But there's more to it, too! They also offer you the chance to win £5000 Development Fund from Island Records, and the opportunity to play at the legendary The 100 Club, in London!
The Road to The 100 Club
At every Meet & Jam Night this year they are scouting the best individual musicians and three original acts from across the UK for one huge night of live music at The 100 Club in London on Thursday 21st January. This will be an invite only event, with Island Records, PRS, Spinnup and Jack Daniel’s all in attendance to select the finest musicians from around the UK.
At stake on the night is a generous £5,000 development fund with Island Records. Runners up on the night will receive membership of PRS, and the best jamming musicians will receive new instruments. Great prizes... this is one opportunity not to be missed!
So, get your name down for one of the 2015 Meet & Jam Nights for your chance to be fast- tracked to play in front of some of the most influential people in the industry.
How does it work?
You can apply to play either as an originals act, or as an individual musician to jam along with other great musicians to a selection of well-known songs. 2 or 3 originals acts will be selected to play in the originals slots in the middle of the evening, and the aim is to get as many jamming applicants on stage as possible, with up to 16 jams throughout the night.
