What is Whiskey Jam?
Whiskey Jam is a time-tested source of great live music. For over 8 years, we have hosted some of music's best writers & artists, often before they become household names.
For the artists, we provide an honest & discerning crowd. It's a proving ground. Whether they like it or not, you'll know.
For the audience, we provide the best original music party in Nashville. There's a lot of places to enjoy music & a lot of places to have a drink, but there's nowhere better to do both.
In January 2011, Whiskey Jam started a Monday night event in the burgeoning Midtown Nashville area. Built on the idea of "Good music, good friends, good party," what began as an underground writer's night, quickly became a musical & social mainstay of the local music scene.
The first few months saw guest artists like OneRepublic, Kip Moore, Brett Eldredge, David Nail, Chris Young, Dustin Lynch and The Fray. The laid back atmosphere was cool enough for locals, yet accessible enough for visitors. Music Row A-Listers enjoying beers and music alongside the aspiring stars of tomorrow. In that regard, it was a rare combination and an instant hit.
Over the past 8 years, Whiskey Jam has grown to have a huge following of artists, friends and fans, all drawn in by their honest attachment to the freshness and spark of the event. From Music Row publishing companies hosting "takeover" nights to showcase their team of talent, to Music Row record labels testing their latest artist's mettle on the seasoned crowd, you're always in for a great time. Of course, there's always the occasional pop-in by one of Nashville's (or LA's or NYC's) top writers or artists. The cherished Nashville idea of "you never know who you're gonna see" is alive and well here.
We're very lucky to be an established part of this thriving scene at such a pivotal time in Nashville's history.
The future is bright for Nashville, and we're grateful to be along for the ride.
