    As this is the last Jam Workshop for the year, we'll have some treats on the tables, a Xmas raffle and a CBS member's lucky door prize!

    Join us for our popular Jam Workshops for interested musicians wanting to develop their skills and gain experience in playing the blues in a band environment.

    Advice and mentoring will be provided by a house band featuring a selection of our finest players.


    Held on the 1st Wed each month, except January, at The Harmonie German Club and presented in a format similar to but more intimate than the monthly Blues Jams.

    The workshops are not intended to show you how to play your instrument, but they may give you a better understanding about how blues music is structured and how you can communicate this to the other members of your band.

    The workshop jams aim to create a comfortable, non-threatening environment where less confident musicians and singers can perform in a band situation. 

    NOTE: The selection of pieces to be used is at the Workshop Facebook Group

    Gerrard Allman Events is proud to announce the return of American Blues Rock legend Walter Trout for a string of headline performances around the country with his band in early 2024.

    Warrior, survivor, icon. If there were Grandmasters in the world of music – Walter Trout would surely be among them. From his early days in 1970’s LA supporting the likes of John Lee Hooker, Big Mama Thornton and Percy Mayfield – through to his stint playing guitar for the seminal Canned Heat (1981-1985) – the turning point for this gifted musician was his invitation to join British Blues giant John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, where he paired up with fellow six-string virtuoso Coco Montoya. Emboldened and encouraged by Mayall, Walter began what would become his own very successful solo career in 1989.

    34 years and 30 albums later, through well-documented sickness and health, 72 year old Walter Trout has emerged stronger, more determined and as brilliant as ever. His passion for music and connecting with other music lovers through his songs and incendiary live performances, and the support and love of his family is both his lifeline and his inspiration.

    Canberra Blues Society is super excited to welcome multi award-winner Walter Trout to the Harmonie German Club for a very special show in the Zeppelin Room.

    Support: TBA
