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

Please subscribe to our email list to stay updated!


Our park jams are now happening at Sellwood Park on Wednesday evenings 6-8pm and Saturday afternoons 2-4pm. These are COVID-conscious, space-limited, reservation-only jams, so please let us know if you are interested by emailing

In June, Community Jams was the recipient of a grant from the Fred W. Fields Fund of Oregon Community Foundation to support general operating expenses in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. We are very grateful to Doug Marshall who is leading our grant research team and helping us plan for the long-term! We’ll still need your ongoing support as we ramp up with outdoor jams over the summer. Consider one-time or monthly donations on Patreon.

COVID-19 Status

While respecting guidelines for preventing the spread of coronavirus, we are taking a break from our new studio space at 211 SE Madison St inside East Creative Collective, a centrally-located studio and gallery for artists. Throughout the summer we’ll jam at Sellwood Park on Wednesday evenings 6:30-8:30pm and Saturday afternoons 2-4pm. Send us an email at to learn how to join these limited-space sessions!

We also host online meetups where we socialize and broadcast (livestream) backing tracks for you to play or sing along with at home. These meetups are presented through Zoom for our casual video chats or through our Twitch tv channel for regular musical broadcasts. If you’re more interested in the new world of synchronized online jams, read our info on NINJAM and send us a message at
