TED HALL'S BLUES JAM IS BACK EVERY SUNDAY NIGHT
TED HALL’S BLUES HISTORY
Ted Hall’s Blue’s Jam has been an Austin tradition for 24years.. Ted first started the jam Jan. 3, 1993 at a very small Italian restaurant called “Gino’s Italian Grill” located in South Austin.. The Blue’s jam has always been a gathering of Blue’s fans & musician’s young & old. The jam lasted at its 1st spot for 15 years, every Sunday night until Gino’s closed. Over the 24 years the jam has moved a handful of times around South Austin sports bars. Along the way the jam also tried a handful of places a few times only to shift to a better spot after a few weeks. There were several spots that kept the jam going each week. A Whiskey Speakeasy club/Hostel downtown for a year, a Hard Rock/Metal club in North Austin for 4 months suddenly closed by the IRS, a college campus bar 2 different times for 8 months each.. A coffee shop for 6 months located in huge Apartment complex above a shopping mall right in the center on town... A large Hotel w/a Music Club & Restaurant for 2 & 1/2 years ( 2 nights a week) in South East Austin & a New Orleans restaurant in North East Austin very short lived only 6 weeks.... Ted stopped the Blue’s jam in 2016 except on his Birthdays & at Christmas time......
June 2, 2018 Ted has started the Blue’s jam again. It’s now held at the Austin Guitar School on Sunday nights 8pm-11pm.. The format has been updated a little in the spirit of reconnecting the local Blue’s community with each other thru playing/jamming together in a completely creative atmosphere.. Musicians & fans can bring their own Alcohol, this is a 21 & up show. Minor’s must be accompanied by a parent..
