About Ham Jam
Ham Jam is a classic county music jam group, with a bit of bluegrass and
mainstream gospel music typically performed. We play every
Tuesday, from 6:30 to 9:00 PM, at the Brownville Fire Hall on Brown
Boulevard in the village of Brownville.
We used to play year-round, but due to weather related issues we have
experienced in the past, we now take the months of January and February
off. We typically start our season on the first Tuesday in March
and conclude on the last Tuesday before Christmas.
There is no charge either for musicians or spectators. Refreshments are
provided each night and donations are graciously accepted. We also
have a 50-50 each night.
New players and spectators are always welcome. We provide a sound
system with mics for the players. Any singer that wishes to bring
their own mic may plug into our system, space permitting. For the
most part, we use acoustic instruments, with some exceptions. We
do occasionally have electric instruments but we do ask that the levels
be kept within reason.
Coffee and refreshments are served each week. The coffee is
provided by Ham Jam and refreshments are made possible by volunteers
that sign up on a rotating schedule. A donation can is
present. We do not expect the players or those that provide the
refreshments to contribute, but we do encourage the general public to be
generous. We make regular donations to various organizations in
the community, as well as the owner of our venue. These donations
and our 50-50 drawing are our only source of income.
