Bob Fisher and Bobby Ray Self, two local musicians, are hosting a jam session at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union Hall, 2911 W. Parrish Ave.,  from 6 to 10 p.m. on Thursday.

And Fisher, who manages the local band Beyond Blu, hopes it leads to more get-togethers for local musicians -- acoustic or electric.

It doesn't matter what instrument you play, he said, you're welcome.

"We'll have amps and microphones," Fisher said. "If it's country or classical, it's good."

He said, "My idea is to create a musicians' social club, a place where musicians can network."

If you don't play, you're welcome to come and listen, Fisher said.

"We need spectators too," he said.

Fisher said, "It's hard to find places to jam. We're thankful that the IBEW is letting us do this."

The building holds between 80 and 100 people, he said.

During the summer, Fisher said, "We can do have the jams in the parks with a family atmosphere."

He sees the jam session as a place to share music and thoughts.

The union hall is across the street from Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn.
