Local bands, local beer and local food – if that sounds good to you, do not miss out on Mr Wolf ‘s Jam Sesh kicking off this Thursday night (16 August).

One of Canberra’s most popular nightclub venues has launched a monthly gig showcasing the best Canberra artists, teaming up with Shorty’s and Pact Brewing Co. to create a good night out for everyone.

Mr Wolf’s debut Jam Sesh will have three of the hottest local talents playing their live tunes while chefs from Shorty’s will be serving mouth-watering burgers and fries from the venue’s kitchen and Pact Beer’s locally brewed tinnies being served behind the bar.

Ryan Sabet, the owner of Kicks Entertainment and Mr Wolf, said he was ecstatic to be championing the local Canberra music community and was excited that local businesses got on board.

“Fostering the local music scene is what Mr Wolf’s Jam Sesh is all about,” Mr Sabet said.

“Mr Wolf is an amazing venue for live music and with so many touring live acts coming through, we felt more support should be going to local artists. Jam Sesh gives bands the opportunity to gain experience playing live and get their music heard. Its also going to be a bit of fun… which is what music should be all about.”

Sharing the same vision for local music culture, the owners of Pact Brewing Co. said they were extremely proud to be supporting Canberra’s live music scene and hopes the opportunity invigorates local artists.

“We get this concept, it feels like just yesterday, we were smashing it out on the drums at Terrace Bar, Toast, Battle of Bands, Woden Youth Centre, Gup Sound, Pod People, Metal for the Brain,” owners Tim Osbourne and Kevin Hingston said.

“We are so proud to be supporting this, let it grow!”

The live music event will provide local bands with a state of the art sound system, a sound engineer and a great venue to strut their stuff and showcase the amazing talent that exists in Canberra’s music scene.
