For several reasons too boring to go into, the Uptown Jam scheduled for tonight is off. Come by Billy's next week when Divo and the Distractions will do a show.

Chuck Berry, one of the great characters of Rock and Roll [and the inventor] just died. What a shame. On the other hand, he lived to be 90. It can be done.

Uptown Jam This Thursday! After missing the last 2 Uptown Jams for a Florida stint with Chubby Checker, I am thrilled to be back hosting the Uptown Jam at Big Billy's in Mt Vernon for this Thursday. Extrordinary talent is promised. Bring your ax, bring your sax, no need to bring your stacks. I missed you guys. I missed Andy Bassford hosting which I heard was phenomenal. He'll be returning to the Uptown Jam with Collateral Damage at Big Billy's on Saint Patrick's night--just five bucks.
But this Thursday it's free [just buy a drink frchrisake---or a burger] As always, it'll be a showcase for the greats, and the rest of us. Now featuring live band Karioke.

We're starting to feel very much at home at Big Billy's. It is becoming a very cool spot. A lot of great players from the area in addition to our old friends from days past. The new PA sounds great.
We are looking forward to seeing you all this Thursday starting at 5pm at Big Billy's.

Big Billy's is at 138 Mount Vernon Ave. [connects w Yonkers Ave] near the Bronx River Parkway. Or take the Metro-North Harlem line to the West Mt Vernon stop. 1 minute walk. It's also a 15 min walk from the Wakefield-241st St stop on the 2 train subway. After years of needing a vehicle, the Uptown Jam is once again, mass transit friendly to NYC folks.

Alex DeLuca:
Jammers come early :-) But please everyone, but especially regulars who have gotten a lot value and fun at the Jim Wacker's Uptown Jam over the decades, need to understand the direct connection between how many sodas, drinks and food Big Billly sells, and how much we can afford a pro backline for our weekly *free* open jams Thurs 5:30-12:30, and how much we can afford to pay 'pro groups' like Collateral Damage, Jane Getter and friends, Pat Tomasso and her amazingly tight (and sweet guys, all,) etc.

[these off the top of my aching head - been a lot of shows since the rapid rise and fall of the Uptown Jam Underground at the now defunct Westchester Tavern --- just about a year ago. [yikes, or was that 2 yrs ago!]

So, Jammers: get in by 7:30 and avoid the fee for Collateral Damage and what promises to be an amazingly great 'late jam' 8:45'ish till we feel like closing.

BUT, *please* either bring a friend or two to enjoy Collateral Damage, etc, people who will actually buy a drink and maybe one for the musicians... and jammers that come alone to jam, totally cool. You drop by and knock our socks off for 20 mins and leave whenever. Just please, buy a soda, buy a burger, leave a tip, say, 'thank you.'

Sorry to' be all downer about $$ - But if all who enjoy the (almost always) free music and always free Uptown Jam - try to kick in $5 - $10, through inviting friends and fans to a very cool venue, or by buy yourself and a fellow musician a drink or fries, it will make a real difference. peace,

These images are from "Live at Big Billy's - Bands and the Jim Wacker Uptown Jam. All welcomed - no one gets shamed. New people are finding us through More Sugar and FB; sweet.

This set is from 2016--03-10. We'll work on better photography lighting. All of these from an iPhone 5s at default and auto settings.

COLLATERAL DAMAGE this coming Thursday - and they'll also backline for the before and after jam. Sort of a Best of Jim Wacker's Uptown Jam rolled into a pleasant evening. I'll have a great time; it'd better, though, if you were there. :-)

I think these are from March 3, 2016. enjoy - feel free to name yourselves in comments or however. Another set to follow...

I like this photo. Think it was his first time with us. Playing harp, drums and vocals (and guitar?) he's a talented guy who got pretty much stage time as he wanted. Tomorrow I'm taking names and email or phone...

Sort of mis cut and pasted, we'll put up all the even vaguely decent images I seem to have.
A bit mixed up, up its so dark is mostly doesn't matter which Thursday night a particular image is.
Not sure when the first pics were taken - maybe Feb 2016, maybe Mar. ALSO the most recent photos from March 3rd, 2016.
