Every Tuesday night from 7:00pm to 11:00pm, area musicians gather at Auburn Public Theater for Jammin’ Tuesday, an informal jam session which provides an opportunity for area musicians to perform original tunes and covers with one another. This evening is always free and open to the public. A light café menu is offered along with general seating. WiFi is also available. Music sessions are recorded with the intention of later streaming the musical offerings of each Tuesday night on the internet. Look for a link coming soon on the APT website.
If you are a musician and would like to get involved, come on down to APT any Tuesday night between 7:00 and 11:00pm. If you are not a musician and would just like to listen, come on down to APT between 7:00 and 11:00pm any Tuesday night. If you have a question, please feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (315) 253-6669.
