Based on the popularity of its bimonthly blues jam, Roscoe's BBQ has asked Ashland Blues Society to host a third jam the last Saturday of every month.

ABS will present its debut Saturday jam session at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 31, at Roscoe's 117 S. Main St., Phoenix. Other ABS blues jams are planned for the first and third Tuesdays of the month.

The Blues Society Band, featuring drummer Tom Freeman, blues harpist Mark Howard, bassist Bill Fischer and guitarists Robert Ogle and David Pinsky, will lead off the evening with a 45-minute set of traditional blues (think B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf and Robert Johnson) and then invite other blues musicians to jam with them.

The jams are free. Call 541-512-1046.
