Jeff Williams of BluEarthArts digitally recorded and mixed the blues jam sessions - pro bono - at the Swigwam Beach Bar from 2005 to 2010, and recorded at least 7000 songs live during that time.

This page was once the exclusive site of the original Swigwam Blues Jam, but that awesome jam - blues, beach, beer, bikini babes and incredible sunsets - was thrown under the bus by a new management in 2010.

Recordings from other blues jams have subsequently been added here. The link to the Swigwam jams can be found below with the others.

Jeff is also available for hire for offsite audio recordings and still photography of your live performances. Need a demo or other live audio recording at a reasonable price? - go here.

Note that the MP3s on these jam pages resulted from simple multi-track mixes with minimal processing and most older ones have been archived at a low resolution to save on server space. The clip which plays when this page loads is a montage of various live recorded performances in 2012 - all unrehearsed moments of cool stuff.

Be sure to also check out Jeff's Musician's Portraits pages for photos of local musicians. Also, check below for local musician contacts.
