ATTENTION PLEASE: We at the Mohawk Valley Blues Society have reluctantly decided that our open jams will be suspended until further notice. While our current venue at Piggy Pat's Smoke and Ale House has allowed us to continue safely under their outside pavilion, with the onset of colder weather that's no longer feasible, and indoor shows aren't practicable with the current capacity limitations and the current guidelines. Accordingly, in an abundance of caution, we have voted to cancel the jams until further notice. As important as the jams are to us, the health of our MVBS members is more important, and we will not put anyone at risk. Keep in mind this move is temporary and we'll let you know when we're ready to resume; it'll give you time to work on your chops! Thank you for all your continued support and we hope to see you all soon.
