First half — student recital
It was a student recital for a popular music school. But the difference was that students had an option to perform with a backing band.
The backing band for the event provided some confidence for the students and ensured everyone had a great time no matter how the students played. The band can gloss over slip-ups, take away attention from mistakes, and add more energy to a performance in a way no amateur musician is capable of doing.
Even with or without the slip-ups, everyone had a great time here in the private room of Blu Jaz Cafe.
Second half — open jam session
After the student recital was over, everyone — including the guests at the Blu Jaz Cafe — were invited on stage to an open jam session. Jamming exemplifies the philosophy of the music school to make music fun and accessible to all. It was a great way to end the night and many of the guests came to perform their favourite songs.
Likewise, I had a fun time photographing everyone in the event at Blu Jaz Cafe.
