About The Jam Jar in Bristol

Known for its long open-ended jam sessions, this unique space in (you guessed) an old Jam factory on the edge of Old Market has been a well kept secret for live music fans in Bristol. Gigs are often free entry with the free-wheeling vibes of 70s loft parties but the versatile space also hosts exhibitions from local artists.

Our recent recommendations

70s Ethio-jazz legend who drifted into obscurity but now may be considered one of the all time pioneers…..revitalised (in the West) by Awesome Tapes From Africa’s re-issue project, Hailu’s imaginative organ and accordion grooves capture the popular ghosts of the past for our modern ears. LowKey: Hailu Mergia + Daniel Inzani + DJ set at The Jam Jar.
The most vital act to survive the 90s acid-jazz / trip-hop boom - Red Snapper’s electronic playfulness, instrumental virtuosity and disregard for genre boundaries blazed a path for the current Bristol jazz crossover scene (Snazzback, Waldo’s Gift etc.). A special intimate show with the legendary & groundbreaking band - 'Red Snapper'.
Angular and ominous math-jazz to soundtrack the apocalypse. Think Crack Cloud’s post-punk fury fused with hypnotic instrumental jazz (and then some). Brain-Frying Post-Apocalyptic Math-Jazz
Get your fix of UKG, breaks and 160 beats at new grassroots-focussed night Patchworks: a celebration of femme, trans and non-binary selectors in the electronic underground raising funds for the Trans Asylum Seeker Support Network. A night of huge tunes from an all female and gender non-conforming lineup
Beirut’s most infamous crate-digger, Ernesto Chahoud has the rarest of rare groove and the most ethio-jazz smarts in the Middle East. Catch him fling psychedelic cumbia or euphoric tarab across the dancefloor like it was bread to the pigeons. Psychedelic funk records from around the world
