Open jamming means that our host with the most, Dave Balfour, will play all night and will invite people up on stage to join in. It�s a great time for both audience and musicians!
Musicians: Bring your instrument of choice (including drums - small stage sized set please) and approach Dave to quickly let him know that you�re there and you would like to join in on the jam. He�ll do his best to rotate you in if at all possible. This is a great event and is catered to most levels of playing. Jamming is fun and helps build your skills. It�s great when it all gels together and it�s entertaining when it doesn�t (doesn�t happen to often!).
Audience: It�s a Wednesday night, it�s the middle of the week. You�re looking for something to do -maybe meet some friends or take in some entertainment. O�Reilly�s Pub in Perth has your answer. The Open Jamming experience with Dave Balfour is a night of amazing music and it�s all FREE. No cover. The music ranges from classic rock to folk to MILD country to blues to hits of today and beyond. It�s a night of fun and friends, music and mayhem.
The show starts at 8:30pm so both musicians and audience should arrive early for easier setup and best seating. There is a great food menu and drinks so don�t hesitate to come for supper or snacks and drinks prior to the show!
His fourth album, Welcome Home Ivy Jane, produced by Keith Glass of Prairie Oyster fame, along with Zeman and Steve Foley at Audio Valley, cements Zeman�s talent as a songwriter who balances the grit of everyday life with a lyrical heart. Sung in his deep, rich and twangy vocals and backed by a first rate band, Zeman is, as one reviewer has said, �certainly a rising star� (Atlantic Seabreeze).
Zeman�s vocals often illicit immediate comparisons to Americana greats; Country Music News has said that Zeman has �a voice that begs to be compared to Steve Earle� while Rootshighway claims that �Brock Zeman should have been born in Austin Texas.� But it is Zeman�s songwriting that makes the comparisons to the great singer-songwriters stick.
