The Huntington Beach Blues Jam is a great place to network with other musicians in Orange County, California. Many Orange County blues musicians have met here and made connections for gigs and recording dates. We get a lot of regular blues jammers and we’re always happy to see new faces.

If you have a blues oriented band, bring the whole band and you can do a set together. Its best to arrange this ahead of time to secure a spot.

    This is Scott Galloway – I play in a blues band named Black Cat Mojo – I would love to come down but I want to be sure that I do not stand around and never get a chance to play – I am 52, much experience, etc. Please call me at (949) 903-4405 or [email protected]

    Hi Scott – everybody gets up to play – if you sing you’ll get up earlier in the night as we always need a vocalist to run the set. The only reason someone doesn’t get up is that they have to go home early. Looking forward to meeting you.

    Hello Mike,
    I am in a ZZ Top type Duo. Look and sound pretty good! Same age as the members in ZZ Top. Maybe we could come by on a Wednesday and do 2-3 tunes. Thanks, Ronnie
