Gordon Sterling Presents: The Gypsysally’s Jam

"There's no velvet rope, you know what I mean? Everybody is vibing and hanging with each other no matter what your stature is in the music scene. And we all get to build off each other. And it's brought the city closer, I think." - Gordon Sterling

For nearly two years Gordon Sterling Presents: The Gypsysally's Jam has filled the music halls of this region. Musicians drive from around the region to have their names pulled from buckets, randomly putting people together to jam. Originally held at IOTA Club & Cafe, the bucket jams quickly  became a staple, and one whose loss was briefly feared after the Arlington venue shut down in the midst of area redevelopment.  As Gordon said, "IOTA went the way of the dodo, and Gypsy Sally's was just the perfect home and that thing has just, like, exploded. It's nuts." 

The following is a collection of all the Tuesday Night Jams that DC Music Review has recorded and preserved for the community.
