A jam session and open mic every Friday night w/ backing by the Gerry Eastman Quartet.
Catch jazz of all styles every Friday night at the Williamsburg Music Center. Gerry Eastman and his rotating cast of musicians warm up the crowd at the intimate venue on Bedford Ave. Musicians, poets, singers, and the like are welcome to join them on stage. Both newcomers and established veterans of the New York jazz community tend to pay the WMC a visit on Friday nights, so you never know what you'll get. Whether its a trio, quartet, or larger, the crew always keeps it tight and together (usually while improvising entire pieces for the first time). Fridays at WMC are great for those looking to warm up their Friday night, for couples, or for jazz enthusiasts seeking to catch some quality musicianship.
