Tuesday Jam is an open stage evening which over the past 15 years has established itself as an institution in Tromsø city for both musicians and audiences.

The house band consists of 4 to 5 musicians who are rolled weekly. Whether you come alone or with friends; the organization provides a low threshold for other musicians, regardless of level, to go up on stage to play with others. The jam is a gathering place where musicians can interact, build networks, explore genres, learn new skills and build stage presence and self-confidence. Many Tromsø bands have their origins in the jam, and it has on several occasions been a catalyst for new collaborations.
