Jam session is ran poorly and unprofessionally. Rules are one song less than 10 minutes long.
This is unworkable, should be a 3 song limit like everywhere else. I got to do one song, where the house band played with me and butchered the song with wrong chord changes and rhythm (12-bar blues, it was *not* a hard song).
After that, all their local buddies did three to four songs each for 90+ min while my wife got tired and yearned to leave.
Finally, I got to do ONE more song (with a better drummer), which the audience seemed top like a lot, and I was bumped off for another local band.
I wasted $20 renting a guitar for this. Unorganized, lots of dead time, lots of unprofessional favoritism, and inept misuse of the PA system.
Musicians, unless you are an incestuous insider with the house band, don't waste your time, look for a different jam session on the island.
