There is an open jazz jam twice a month in the Fallout Shelter of Waterfall Arts, 256 High St. The jams are held the first and third Wednesday of every month from 7 to 9 p.m., which means the next jam is June 16.

The jam offers a refreshing change from CDs with the case of digital skips and iPods that only play in mono. These twice-a-month sessions make it easy to hear great jazz with friends and to make it – brush off that old instrument in the attic and bring it along.

A nominal donation is requested for refreshments and to support the music venue. For more information, call Waterfall Arts at 338-2222.
