Randy Oxford Blues Theater All Ages Open Jam
Playing upwards of 200 gigs a year and hosting several jams throughout the Puget Sound, Randy Oxford is the hardest working musician in the Northwest, and the trombone man has just added one more engagement to his monthly calendar.  Beginning March 29, Oxford and his band will be hosting a weekly jam at Jazzbones dubbed The Randy Oxford Blues Theater All Ages Open Jam. 
Because of the popularity of Oxford's long-running Wednesday Night Blues Theater Jam at Jake's Ales for the last five years he had no less than five offers from venues wanting him to continue the show at their place.  Oxford went with Jazzbones because of their willingness to get young musicians involved. "Jazzbones has always been kid friendly, and now Jason McKinnon really wants to present the opportunity for kids to be exposed to the blues and also get a chance on stage jamming with the pros," says Oxford.  The Wednesday night happening will be free and run from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. with minors able to participate until 11 p.m.  The maiden voyage of the latest Oxford jam will feature 17-year-old guitar sensation Ian Crawford along with Doug Skoog from Blues Alliance. 7 p.m., all ages, no cover, Jazzbones, 2803 Sixth Ave., Tacoma. - Tony Engelhart
