Original Compositions & Jam Session


Thursdays are alive!

The WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN and 'Naked Jazz' invite you to our new 'Thursday Nights' of creative magic. Come enjoy fresh musical ideas in the form of our jam sessions and original compositions - 'short features.'

Eric Vaughn and his band will open the first set consisting of six tunes, some originals from the band members themselves and the balance with spontaneous arrangements and standards followed by a jam session in the second set.

Initially, the jam session will be for other people who want to showcase their ideas. They will be encouraged to bring their friends or band members - an experimental environment, a relaxed open presentation for the audience by a trio and several special guests.

Line Up:

Eric Vaughn - drums
Josh Ginsburg - bass
Joel Holmes - piano

& Special Guests

Thursdays | 9PM | Club | Entry: 7€ / 5€ / 3€ (Berlinpass & musicians)
