Loud Jamz is a free show on March 7th at 8PM at Douglas Corner. The best musicians in town play a night of cover songs.
Mention the word ‘Nashville’ in any town outside of it and people immediately think cowboy boots, honky tonks, and country music. Tourists come to town hoping to spy their favorite country stars in their natural habitat. The often overlooked hottest commodity you’ll find in Nashville, however, is the surplus of Grade A musicians. Nashville has the highest concentration of the country’s top musicians who tour alongside those marquee names. Several days a week they play what they have to. Given a choice, they’d likely play something entirely different.
Beginning August 3 at Douglas Corner in Nashville, Tom Hurst is bringing back the Loud Jamz! With a custom-built house band that will use a variety of instrumentalists and vocalists with a broad range of featured guests, this will be a players jam without high tech assistance. Skilled musicians who know their craft, and aren’t afraid to put the creative pedal to the metal, will turn up the volume and the musicianship to challenge themselves and entertain what is sure to be a packed house. Drawing predominantly from a master repertoire of songs that cover all genres across the musical spectrum, the goal is to bring out the soul in the music and the player in a way that incites a riot of movement. Technologically, this will be no pedestrian ensemble of sound. Nothing short of bad ass will do.
The format of the show will feature four distinct musical sections. Beginning at 8pm until 8:40, the house band will play roughly seven songs. From 8:50 to 9:30, an established group or artist will perform a six to seven song set. The house band will return from 9:40 to 10:30 to play another seven or eight songs, and from 10:20 to 11pm, the show will end with an open jam. With just two ten-minute intermissions, this is nearly three hours of an eclectic set list you won’t find anywhere else.
