Overview of Blue Plate Jam May 13


The Jam led by the Front Row and continues in the Blue Plate Tavern in Plainville.  This is a home town spot and the music adds to the entertainment in town.  Now that it has been open for awhile, it is starting to get a comfortable feel.  Warm weather has opened the patio.  The crowd is friendly, good service and raving reviews for the food.

Handling the Jam base is Mitch, Mike, and Jesse.










The Jam is often at the mercy of the jammers that show up.  This week I heard some blues, Allman Brothers,

AC/DC, and classic rock.  The crowd wanted some dance music.  And got its wish.







Ed Davis come in for some guitar.










Chris handled a few vocals.










Sick Scene Sunday played for a set.
