Sept 29th Review
by Wayne Kessler and John Dammacco
The JSJBF Monthly Jam kicked off by Jam Host Jack Piccolomini, with a bang. The word on the street spread and Jack welcomed the familiar players with some players and fans that hadn’t been around for some time. We also saw some first-time fresh faces, including a youth guitar player from our relationship with Lakehouse Music Academy, who were eager to see what the night had to hold. The Colts Neck Inn was jumping all night. The staff and servers were on their game keeping the drink and food flowing and the guests happy.
The full house of players, bands and fans were greeted by the JSJBF President Tom Baldino with opening remarks that spoke to the power of our Community and a night of Blues was underway. The sign-up list was packed with an assortment of talented musicians. The first line up set the tone for what would be an epic night of live music. We saw 10 full line ups that set the bar for each to follow.
The night was an overwhelming success, proof positive that live music is alive and well. The JSJBF couldn’t be more proud of Jack, his crew and the Colts Neck Inn for delivering a true experience. Of course, where would we be without the community of musicians, fans and friends. See next month!
