Moses Oakland's Blues Jam at Famous Dave's BBQ - 8/28
Every second and fourth Sunday, dancer-favorite Moses Oakland leads the open jam at Famous Dave's.

Who will get on stage this time? Ronn Easton? Lamont Cranston? Davina? Only one way to find out.

The best blues musicians in the city can always be found at the Famous Dave's jam, which means the best dancers in the city aren't far behind. The restaurant reserves the long table next to the bar, to your left when you come in, just for us!

First Tuesdays at Wilebski's - September 6
There are dancers at Wilebski's every Tuesday, but no Tuesday more than First Tuesday. If you've wanted to check out the live jam at Wilebski's Blues Saloon but haven't gotten around to it, this is the day.

The jam is free, the floor is big, and the music is loud. (No, really, maybe bring earplugs?) Buy a drink, shake it out, let's do this!
