    Is a spouse/guest allowed into the Jam Session, or is it closed to attendees only?

    Based on the FAQ, I am assuming the answer to your question would be that the Jam Session is only open to attendees.

    @Scottee25:Good catch Scott.  It's too bad we can't take one in.  The Jam Sessions are fun to watch.

    They may be fun for spouses or outsiders to see but they can be a distraction too.  If they let one non-registered attendee in, then they'll have to let others including children.  Kinda defeats the gist of attending a geek conference.

    Jam Sessions are a free event this is open to everyone. If you have a travelling partner, they should be able to join you. Unlike the closing event where everything is covered by MS, the jam sessions are basically just a venue they have procurred for people to jam. You pay for food/drinks/etc. At least that is how it has been in the past.

    So pardon the dumb question, but what exactly is provided for the jam sessions? I can find videos, but would like information on what I need to do/bring to participate.

    The Jam Sessions are at the House of Blues New Orleans from 9 PM–1 AM, on Tuesday, June 4. Just jump up on stage and show off your talents with your fellow attendees. You'll have access to lyrics, instruments, sheet music, a complete sound and lighting system.

    Okay, what instruments? Would like to see if there are enough horn players out there interested in adding a horn line as backup to the band.

    I can confirm that we typically provide backline (drums, keyboard, percussion, mics & amps) as well as a couple of guitars. No horns, unless you bring your own.

    This sounds just amazing! I can't wait to get to USA and see where Jazz and Blues were born.

    Was the jam session recorded?.  I played drums on the opening set.   Would love to see it and show the family what nerds do for fun.

    I played drums for the blues jam later in the night. Anyone got anything of that?

    Only feedback I have for the organizers is it could have been better organized. One guy played guitar for a number of songs and there were a lot of us waiting. I played for one song and then a group that wanted to play together came on and I was out.

    Thinking of dragging along a 7-string arch top to TechEd if nothing else to amuse myself in the Hilton after hours :D
