Connecting musicians of all abilities to foster community, compassion, and harmony by playing live music together

Project Status

We’re now renting a beautiful new space at Swaha Studios in Room 102 at 1235 SE Division St., Portland, OR. Join us for jams Wednesday evenings, Thursday afternoons and evenings, Saturday (monthly), and Sunday evenings.

Starting on January 1st, we’ll be leasing and moving to a new studio space at 211 SE Madison St inside East Creative Collective, a centrally-located studio and gallery for artists. This long-term space provides us with more room to play, full-time jam opportunities, and video and recording options.

Meanwhile, the Community Jams nonprofit project continues to work to meet our physical needs with a more permanent location. Our search for this space considers the following criteria: Minimum of 750 sq ft with restrooms, accessibility, access to major freeways and public transit, accessible from 9am -10pm seven days a week, with noise-compatible neighbors. All potential sites (residential, commercial, industrial) need to be vetted for occupancy status, current commercial status, current fire and seismic codes, neighborhood tolerance to our music activity.

Find out how you can help us find a space!
