The weekly live blues jams at Headliners, 165 Fraser St next to Mrs Riches in Nanaimo, have returned to the original format and the last couple of Thursday jams have been great and well attended. Headliners is the new name and location for what used to be the Blues Underground and Sky High Productions. The doors are open every Thursday from 7:30 to 11 pm. From 7:30 to 8 pm it’s the hosts, the Nanaimo Blues All-Stars, then from 8 pm a feature band or open jam. On Thursday, January 21, 2010 it’s the Adult Rock School Finale. There’s a $2-3 cover charge at the door and concession items are available for sale (no alcohol).
