- The WaHi Weekly Jazz Jam: since February 2015, this jam has provided a way for the many jazz musicians in Washington Heights (and beyond) to gather at a neighborhood restaurant (Le Cheile), play music, in May 2021, we moved the jam to Kismat Restaurant. During the pandemic, we began offering outdoor sessions at Bennett Park (site of the highest natural point in Manhattan!).
To date there had been over 415 sessions: over 600 musicians have played, and as many folks have listened.
No cover - no minimum! Never a long opening set - the jam starts when you arrive!
Come play or hang with us!
Tuesdays, 7:30 - 10:00 Kismat.
