Flash Jam

Rocky Mountain Audiofest marked the spontaneous combustion (launch) of Flash Jam! What is a "Flash Jam"? It's when musicians gather to a single place and assemble to perform. The musicians don't necessarily need to know each other or to have played together before -- just show up with an instrument. Blue Coast Records has had a lot of 'firsts' but this may be the most innovative!
