Boathouse Jam at the Gowanus Boathouse is open to everyone with an acoustic instrument who enjoys collaboration and interaction.

About this event

Our Wednesday night Boathouse Jam is open to everyone with an acoustic instrument and a propensity for sitting in a circle while playing. Come on down, lead us in a song and play along. The Gowanus Dredgers boathouse is a family friendly event venue with a mission of connecting us with our waterways.

Christian Apuzzo will lead most sessions. He is a Brooklyn-based vocalist, guitarist, and music educator. Long Island-raised, this musician started his journey as a certified public school music teacher but has since found the wide-open pastures of the freelance music world in NYC. Playing mostly folk, bluegrass, and country music, Christian plays with numerous groups all over our five boroughs including bluegrass group Cole Quest and the City Pickers and local honky-tonk heroes HAM Rodeo. He also teaches music lessons and classes for all ages at Jalopy Theatre in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

The Boathouse Jam is hosted by the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club to activate our shoreline while fostering the continued resurgence of acoustical collaborations in Brooklyn. We are inclusive of all - young & old, new & seasoned musicians. Just bring a smile and your musical instrument and/or your voice to join our one night makeshift band. A featured performer may start each jam. We are free and open to the public but please register so we know you're coming.

By promoting such collaborations, we revitalize and sustain the expanding support for environmental restoration of the Gowanus Canal and New York harbor. Donations encouraged and limited beverages are provided. Session will occur outside at our shoreline with social distance and inside with doors open if it rains, but proof of one COVID shot will be required.

Audience seating is not guaranteed (sorry) and performer participation is limited to 36 until restrictions are lifted.
