Jam in Reading

Jazz in Reading presents two monthly jam sessions, at the Global Café, which have now earned a reputation for being the place to see and hear new jazz talent in the area, as well as established local jazz heroes.

Players and singers can just turn-up, tune-up and join-in alongside our house bands. There is no entry charge.
