Sister Wicked hosts wicked Brandon blues jam
Leicester-based English bluesman Tom Caswell once again will be hosting a blues jam in Brandon this Saturday night, May 12, at Sister Wicked. The jam will feature blues musicians from the area and from around Vermont, and it is open to anyone wanting to hear great music. This is event, which starts at 8 p.m. and lasts until whenever, is held the second Saturday of each month at the store at 3 W. Seminary St., not far from the Brandon Town Hall.
If you’re a musician or singer planning to take part in the jam there will be a sign up sheet located near the stage. A host band led by Tom Caswell will begin the proceedings at 8 p.m. sharp before people are called up from the sign up sheet to form bands and play the blues. The jam will end with the host band taking the stage once more to wrap things up until next time.
Sister Wicked is a unique venue owned by Gina Germond. Not a bar, not a club, but a stunning store that sells clothing, jewelry and skin care products, in addition to a variety of other things. It works surprisingly well as a venue or jamming musicians. At the back of the building is a large music space with plenty of seating and dancing room.
Admission to the jam is free and people are welcome to bring their own food and drink. As always with events at Sister Wicked, there is a voluntary collection box in the venue. If people have any change or spare cash and feel like donating anything, feel free. There is free parking in front and down the side of the building, as well as in front of Heritage Family Credit Union and the town hall, both of which are just across the street.
Although the tunes start at 8, Tom advises that the place fills up, so arrive early to get on the playlist.
